There are wonderful old barns all over our area. And a foggy morning is just perfect for capturing them.

You are correct! That fog really gives the image feeling and intrigue!
7 Mar 2009 5:48am
Beautiful photograph geat atmosphere
7 Mar 2009 5:57am
Nice shot. Something's blooming!
7 Mar 2009 6:49am
@Steve Rice: Actually that's a kind of moss on the trees. The trees are in bud, but nothing is leafed out yet.
Love the fog...love the barn...very nice.

A beautiful location and you've captured the ambience so perfectly here, Jack. Characterful and beautiful
7 Mar 2009 7:23am
Very nice atmosphere , I like the mist and the moss on the trees , I thought it was leaves . Beautiful !
7 Mar 2009 7:30am
beautiful and lovely ...

A Great capture of the stillness of morning in the country! Love it!!
7 Mar 2009 11:54am
Very peaceful atmosphere.... Nice !
7 Mar 2009 12:13pm
what a beautiful image - I love it!
7 Mar 2009 1:15pm
Beautiful scene. I like how you framed and composed the shot and keeping the fence gate in the frame.
I love the atmosphere the fog gives. Well done.
7 Mar 2009 1:20pm
@Barbara: Thank you, Barbara; I took several shots of the barn and having the gate in the frame along with the end angle of the barn was important to me.
I wanted to say I love the inspiring quote.
7 Mar 2009 1:21pm
@Barbara: You may have noticed that most of my quotes are not directly about being a better photographer. I agree with Jay Maisel who said, "If you want to become a better photographer, become a better person." I think that it was that same understanding that made Zack Arias's video so incredibly compelling. It's not that we work on becoming better people in order to become better photographers. We work on becoming better people because that's why we are here. The nice byproduct is that we end up also becoming better photographers.
This is simply stunning, Jack! The fog that is hovering around the barn and even more so in the trees sets such a fantastic mood. Your composition is perfect.
7 Mar 2009 1:26pm
@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon; I thought that this might be your kind of image.
Great shot. I can feel the moisture in the air.
7 Mar 2009 1:40pm
@Lee: There definitely was moisture(not rain) in the air; you needed a towel that morning.
Just perfect. Looks like an orchard on the other side of the fence.
7 Mar 2009 1:45pm
@Chris Parr: I think that it is an orchard, Chris. A short distance from where this photograph was taken, there is a huge Nature Preserve with a maze of trails.
You nicely captured the beautiful mood of this scene. Very well done Jack !
7 Mar 2009 2:01pm
The fog enhances its part of mystery and story... There's something here, looking at these old barns, like ours in France, a part of nostalghia I guess, of times that were tough but so authentic... the time of childhood also.
7 Mar 2009 2:20pm
@zOOm: Thanks, Florence; you may have hit on why this photograph and the one yesterday just might have something to say during these tough times.
Beautiful... love the mood, the fog makes the scene calm and mysterious... great job :)
7 Mar 2009 2:58pm
You just can't beat foggy morning shots. This is terrific.
7 Mar 2009 3:37pm
I agree that a fine barnyard enveloped in fog makes a magical kind of photo opportunity. I like the gate as a counterpoint to the position of the barn. The fences, especially the one going back through the picture, help with the general setting. A fine picture.
7 Mar 2009 4:00pm
@Don: Thanks, Don; the gate is absolutely integral to the photograph. And I'm a sucker for fences of any kind.
Great atmosphere. So perfect.
7 Mar 2009 4:21pm
I alway love fog images and this one is no different. Very well composed Jack especially by including the wood gate to balance the barn and tree on the opposite side
7 Mar 2009 4:46pm
@Diane Schuller: Thanks, Diane; as I mentioned earlier, the gate is essential to the integrity of the photograph. It's actually further to the right side than I would have liked, but when I composed it closer in to the barn, I lost the end view of the barn. Photograph unfortunately does involve compromises.
lovely foggy scene, well composed
7 Mar 2009 5:01pm
Jolie cette brume!
7 Mar 2009 5:48pm
Nice foggy atmosphere, quiet and pleasant place.
7 Mar 2009 5:50pm
nice capture well composed
7 Mar 2009 5:59pm
Beautiful foggy day image. I like that you left the foreground fence to create a sense of depth in the image - well done.
A peace sensation invades me on your photography, I feel there well, an unreal atmosphere. It is a very beautiful image!
7 Mar 2009 7:13pm
@Peggy M.: Thank you, Peggy; for my work to do that for even one person is as extravagant a reward as I could possibly hope for.
I love the barn through the fog - very nice work and composition!
7 Mar 2009 7:38pm
@Scott Schilling: Thanks Scott.
A lovely shot and a great mood-picture with the fog, I also like the gate in the corner.
7 Mar 2009 8:32pm
Goos scene. You've captured a special atmosphere. Good porcessing too
7 Mar 2009 9:28pm
I love how the gate anchors the lower right corner and gives perspective to your beautiful foggy barn shot.
As for your quote, and Zack Arias's video, let's just focus on becoming better people ... I like that.
The photos will come when the time is right! :D
7 Mar 2009 9:37pm
@Judy: My belief, Judy, is that focusing entirely on becoming a better photographer will not necessarily make you a better photographer, and certainly not necessarily a better person; however, focusing on becoming a better person will almost always make you both a better person and a better photographer. Who you are as a person comes through your photography. I don't think that you can fake it. Although it may not be 100% true, when I hear the stories of great photographers, they almost always were neat human beings. And even if you don't become an exceptional photographer, so what!!
beautiful shot i love that foggy mysterious feeling that I get from it
7 Mar 2009 10:16pm
beautiful atmosphere, very gently, in view of flowers on trees, spring is here !
7 Mar 2009 10:36pm
Great landscape. Like a step back in time.
7 Mar 2009 11:20pm
beautiful shot Jack...lucky you to have the barns nearby....
8 Mar 2009 12:01am
Much better than my foggy barn shot, Jack...I can see yours! All kidding aside, this is a great shot. I love old barns.
8 Mar 2009 12:03am
@Toni: Me too!
Wish I had some barns and countryside easily accessible, but that aside what a super capture, such a wonderful mood and atmosphere in this shot
8 Mar 2009 1:38am
Beautiful foggy atmosphere. I like also the trees which are starting to bloom.
8 Mar 2009 1:46am
I'm a little jealous of the old barns... not too many out here on the island. Looks fantastic, Jack!! Don't have too much fun with the new toy, eh?!! LOL!!!
8 Mar 2009 2:58am
@amy: Once I would have said that new toys keep me out of trouble; now I'm too old to get into too much trouble!!
nice job! this looks just like my part of the world.. (West Sonoma County, CA)
@jim: Great part of the world where you live. Before we retired, we were in North San Rafael, close to West Marin. I've bicycled all over West Sonoma County (spectacular coastal ridge roads).
Perfect setting....perfect picture.
8 Mar 2009 5:15am
Lovely image. Dreamy quality. Great use of fog. I like the border. And, of course, the fence and gate work beautifully.
8 Mar 2009 11:07am
Très très belle image...
8 Mar 2009 3:59pm
Fantastic shot, the fog gives it a soft feel.
8 Mar 2009 10:51pm
love fog shots like this
9 Mar 2009 8:12pm
Definitely perfect - I really like the budding trees and their promise of spring, too.
9 Mar 2009 9:07pm
10 Mar 2009 3:30am
Nice atmosphere here ..a great capture my friend
12 Mar 2009 2:19pm
12 Mar 2009 4:38pm
