The beauty of fog…

lies in its ability to reveal just enough to let the imagination run wild!

A discerning eye needs only a hint, and understatement leaves the imagination free to build its own elaborations.

One of things that draws me to photography, especially if you shoot every day like I do, is the unexpected. I love to shoot what nature chooses to reveal and often that is only a hint of what lies beyond.

Fog for me is one of those times that should be grouped with the golden hour for its ability to transform a scene. It has such an ephemeral quality as it shifts and morphs adding its own brush strokes to a landscape. You know that if you come back again and again that it will never look the same.

Keeping an open mind when you head out to shoot will enable you to grow as a photographer. Will you seize the opportunity or will you decide that you won’t be able to see anything before you’ve even looked?

  1. Your mysterious image fits so smoothly with all your other work. I think you and Mother Nature are in cahoots and you’ve chosen to dish out little tidbits to keep us hankering for more 🙂
