So, what can you photograph when you're in the clouds and visibility is about 10 meters? Anything you can see!
The forcast was for clouds giving way to sunny periods so I packed up early and headed to the trail. Pierce Lake is a 3-3 1/2 hour hike and another 1 1/2 hours to Upper Pierce Lake. It's a pretty uneventful hike to the first lake, and when I got there the lake was shrouded in clouds, pretty unphotographic.
I tried a few shots, ate some lunch, then decided to try my luck at the upper lake.
The trail to Pierce Lake is pretty boring with only 1 or 2 spots that offer photographic opportunities, but the trail to the upper lake has wild flowers, plenty of streams and a nice waterfall. I made some mental notes of spots to try on the way down as it was still socked in. I followed the flagged route out onto a rock field where I lost the trail and was unable to pick it back up. It was close to my turn around time so I headed back and spent some time photographing the little meadow with the waterfall.
I think the mist(cloud) adds a great feeling to some of the pictures i took, creating a sense of things looming just out of sight.
