Earl had been try­ing for this shot for a while and al­ready had his lo­ca­tion planned — the sum­mit of Mount Al­bert. Af­ter rush­ing up the short track to the sum­mit, he found the city com­pletely ob­scured by fog, so quickly lo­cated an­other van­tage point, which pro­vided a higher out­look. Us­ing a tri­pod with its cen­tre col­umn up high, Earl had a clear view of the city — but wouldn’t for long. Em­ploy­ing a ca­ble re­lease to pre­vent any camera shake, he swiftly fo­cused and cap­tured the shot within the few sec­onds avail­able be­fore the fog rose once more and again ob­scured the sky­line’s view. “There’s some­thing about shoot­ing in fog,” says Greg, “and I love the way it adds mys­tery to the im­age.”
