Introduction
I can start off like this – “Seeds of Jay Patel’s appreciation for beautiful places were planted early in his childhood….” but it would get boring really fast. I will just sum it up and say that I am a Landscape and Wilderness Photographer who loves to capture dramatic light. My photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and advertising materials throughout the world.

The Waiting Game @ Morain Lake, Banff, Canada

We waited for the fog to clear...and then we waited some more and a bit more. After 4 hours of waiting the fog lifted...and was gone in few minutes. The transition between completely foggy and completely clear was nothing short of breathtaking.

You can read about it here: http://visualwilderness.com/quick-tips/the-waiting-game

Have you played the waiting game? Feel Free to share your stories.

Enjoy & Share.
