On the West Coast of the United States, fog and summer go together. Actually, it can be crystal clear one moment and totally socked in the next.

@Lydie et Roland: Merci.
Really mysterious stuff :)

Very good compo. Love the diagonal lines!

@Foto-aksent: Thank you.
Vraiment étrange entre tout ce bois sur la plage, cette espèce de brume et cette construction en bois qui nous emmène tout là-haut.
L'effet mystique est bien là

As one from this coast, this looks normal and natural to me. And you have captured the feel of it wonderfully. I've been looking at too much old photo-journalism lately....at first glance I saw bodies on the beach! :-) This is lovely. ( Hate to think you had to climb back up all those stairs. Whew!)
26 Aug 2009 6:13am
@Dulcie: Climb?? More than once.
wow!! 5 stars
26 Aug 2009 6:31am

A mystical and enchanting image Jack...beautifully composed and the B&W suits it perfectly!!
26 Aug 2009 9:08am
@Linerberry: Thanks, Caroline.
A piece of ART!

@Anina: Thanks much.
As I was coming down the coast earlier in the week, I noticed a beach in Oregon called Driftwood Beach. Is this it?
26 Aug 2009 10:24am
Lot's of trunk coming from the sea and an easy access to beach with the stairs. Nice picture
26 Aug 2009 10:38am
@akarui: Thank you.
What a brilliant shot...love it. Just as Anina says actually. Just perfect.
26 Aug 2009 11:08am
@MrsAmber: thanks, Kate.
Beautiful scene... great steps....
26 Aug 2009 12:33pm
EXCELLENT! So magnificent of a scene and well composed. Very effective in monotone.
Perhaps one can be accustomed to this scenery if it is part of their daily scenery, but I am in awe and find this an inspiring place to be.
Quite an incredible amount of driftwood. I would be interested to know specifically where this area is.
What a shot, Jack!
26 Aug 2009 12:42pm
@Barbara: Thanks, Barb. I never cease to be in awe of scenes like this.
Wonderfully shot and composed. I remember the awesome driftwood that washes up on your OR shores.
You wanna' send me a large one for my yard? <grin>
26 Aug 2009 1:14pm
@Judy: Have you tried hauling stuff up those steps??
OH! I know these stairs well now! I went up & down them so MANY times last week!
(however, I sure did not think to photograph them!) Wonderful!
26 Aug 2009 1:39pm
I was scared to death when I first saw it than awed by this elementary photo, it's sensational...bravo Jack
(at first it reminded me of a glimpse of Auschwitz with squelletons...what a frightening glimpse) I have a fertile imagination!
26 Aug 2009 1:40pm
@Lorraine: Whoa! This is heaven, not hell!!
When I thought - hmmm.. there is no contrast, I read - mystical fog :))) Great shot Jack !!!
26 Aug 2009 2:24pm
Wow, high tide brough in quite a bit of wood! The west coast in Oregon amazed in that you had to climb down all those stairs to get to the beach! Quite different from New Jersey!
26 Aug 2009 2:25pm
@Betty: It ain't flat!!
A superb high key mono image..wonderfully composed and processed!
26 Aug 2009 2:42pm
@Pavan Kaul: Thank you.
I like the light quality of this beach shot. Your processing and final product reflect skill. A wonderful shot.
26 Aug 2009 3:14pm
@Don: Thanks, Don.
All those bones on the beach speak of winter storms. A lovely atmospheric shot.
26 Aug 2009 3:37pm
@Steve Rice: Thanks, Steve.
Oh ...what a lovely stairway and I like the mood created by the fog in combination with the drift wood in the front!
26 Aug 2009 4:04pm
@Monique: Thanks, Monique.
Ir has a misty, spooky quality to it. Cool.
26 Aug 2009 4:05pm
Amazing. It looks like a graveyard for trees.
@Curly: Yes, it does seem that way!!
wonderful atmosphere ,in this shot ,jack ,nice black and white tones !
26 Aug 2009 4:25pm

26 Aug 2009 4:46pm
@Ajay: Thanks, Ajay.

26 Aug 2009 5:04pm
Hello Jack, a mysterious fog on a cloudy and Dante landscape , all these woods abandoned by the ocean and the solitude that bathes the muffled atmosphere ..is intriguing and fascinating at the same time, fear and desire to lose in this disturbing B&W .. .friendshimps.
26 Aug 2009 5:09pm
@Alivia: Merci, dear Dane.
A really superb composition !
26 Aug 2009 5:30pm
Wonderful shot. It really captures the fog and so much more. The driftwood is extraordinary, and I love the scene with the long staircase, too. Well done.
26 Aug 2009 8:00pm
@LauraS: Thank you.
fantastic composition. I like the stairs, they give hight to the picture
26 Aug 2009 8:34pm
Incredible to see these washed up logs, the mist adds a certain west coast feel for sure.
26 Aug 2009 9:44pm
@Richard Irwin: Yes, it does.
An interesting capture with all that driftwood. I love how the straight lines of the stairs seems to bisect a landscape that has no straight lines.
26 Aug 2009 9:50pm
@Steven: Many thanks, Steven.
Wonderful shot Jack......can't believe all that driftwood in one place....and you've caught that fog magnificently!!!
27 Aug 2009 12:09am
@susan: Thanks, Susan.

27 Aug 2009 12:57am
@Michael: Thank you.

27 Aug 2009 1:15am
@Nadia Olisa: Thank you.
Nice in b&w!
27 Aug 2009 2:24am
I like the way the b+w processing works with the fog to increase the mystical feel.
27 Aug 2009 2:28am
@Michael Rawluk h: Thanks, Michael. Falling in love with fog has made winter much more acceptable here. We don't get much snow, but we do get a fair amount of fog.
You have captured the fog very well. I can't get over all the drifywood. A real collection area. Worth the climb back up for sure.
27 Aug 2009 3:19am
@Lee: Thanks, Lee.
Great fog and I really like the driftwood in the foreground on this image Jack! It's always amazing the amount of driftwood along the coast in the Pacific Northwest! Great Shot!
27 Aug 2009 3:39am
@SCOTT F. SCHILLING: Thanks, Scott. The fog came in at just the right time.
Loce it in B&W... and fog !
27 Aug 2009 6:51am
Incredible black and white. I really like how this image is composed. The misty stairs work perfectly with the driftwood in the foreground. Great capture.
27 Aug 2009 7:12am

27 Aug 2009 7:30am
What a sight to see! Terrific capture and what a lovely mood it sets.
27 Aug 2009 10:13am
Wonderful that you converted to b/w. Excellent shot, Jack!! And I love that there's a crow or raven on top of the viewpoint building.
28 Aug 2009 3:21am
@amy: Thanks, Amy. At least it's not a damn gull.
Sperb fog shot and an excellent composition...lovely b&w....great work
