The night of March 8 2008.
I had gone to try to capture the Northern Lights. I had travelled about a half hour north of the city but the lights lacked luster.
While traveling back home I came upon this fog bank.
I parked my car on the shoulder of the highway. Crossed the highway.
Waded in knee-to-waist-deep snow until I could get my d300 and tripod setup on the median.
The black at the base of the picture is the asphalt from the two lanes of the highway heading north.
