Foggy Forest

This is adjacent to "Woodland Meadow" (the Dog Park).

He who binds
himself to a joy,
Does the winged
life destroy.
But he who kisses
it as it flies,
Lives in
eternity’s sunrise.
– William Blake

Almost zip processing; no sharpening, slight boost to blacks, slight lowering of contrast, added wide stroke; that's it.

Beautiful. I love the soft light and the atmosphere to the forest. A wonderful place for a walk.

You could have said you'd been walking through the woods for miles before taking this shot and, instead you're saying it's next to a dog park!? You could have fooled me. ;o)

Bientôt nous allons retrouver le printemps et le vert sur les arbres, transformant les forêts en doux lieux de méditation

Reste la brume pour donner une autre atmosphère quand le soleil nous quitte. j'aime beaucoup ce genre d'image.

Superbly captured Jack, my kind of location. Those trees have such character, as though they may come to life at any moment

And a very beautiful forest. I really like the colour tone of the shot. It' not very bright green which we generally see. Just enough of all the colours one can expect in such scene.

Fog is one of my favorite natural textures. Nice capture. Nice location.

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

Brocéliande forest, haunted elves and trolls ... an image of fog and skeletal trunks adjacent solitude. Melancholic image that invites to the overrun.

@Alivia: A place of trolls and elves indeed! One goes there to enter the realm of mystical wonder!

Veronelle from Lens, France

i love the forest

@Veronelle: Veronelle, When I was in my 20s, 30s and 40s, and even my 50s, I gravitated to the high alpine grandeur, well above tree line. But today, it is the forest that brings peace to my soul. The great John Muir always preferred the forest.

I to would have easily believed you had tramped to find this spot remote in a forest, but that aside its a great shot, wonderful colors, and the fog gives a lovely peaceful feel

Very nice, Jack. We've been having fog in eastern Washington, too. I've got a series of fog photos starting tomorrow. Unfortunately, we don't have a beautiful foresty dog park. =)

Momo from Montpellier, France

I've gone through a bunch of your images over the last few days jack...i'm loving the trees your doin'...the landscapes...both with the D300 and the G10...holy cow, these are just great...there's something about the subtle color, there's a simplicity to the forms, crops, framing I guess that's just so beautiful...i love them...

9 Feb 2009 5:24pm

@Momo: Thank you; you are very kind. (It does help to have fabulous subject matter!)

Kathryn from Warburton, Australia
