13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Early morning in Jersey City across from Manhattan, the area was completely fogged in. I had given up for the morning and I was walking back to the hotel. When I turned around and almost jumped out of my shoes. The fog was clearing and you could finally see the other side of the Hudson River. I ran back to the pier and manage to get setup to get this shot before the fog complete cleared. I wanted to capture the mostly completed Freedom tower, which was somewhat hidden by the fog. To me it represented how freedom isn't always clear and visible.
