Jack in the Fog

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 8 September 2009 in People & Portrait.

This last photograph of the Coastal Trip was taken by my photographer buddy, Phil. Seemed appropriate for Silly Tuesday.

NIKON D300 1/800 second F/5.6 ISO 200 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Why silly!?? This is an awesome shot of you! (I assume it's you!) ;) Love the fog.... What a gorgeous place for taking photographs

@Magda: It is indeed me. It was a gorgeous place. My photographs posted on August 26 & 27 were taken from right below here.

Hello Jack! How are you ? Good shot !

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

Not envious shot, and you had an envious job taking beautiful photos in that mystical atmosphere! Your coastal trip produced a fine body of work.
I so enjoyed all the photos we've seen so far...hope there are more!
See my Silly Tuesday post,[url=]HERE!

8 Sep 2009 5:28am

@Dulcie: Thanks, Dulcie. If I get in a bind, I might post more from this trip. Right now, I have a backlog of other stuff.

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

I went back to those photographs.... Wow! I would never expect to see such amazing view on the other side!!!

8 Sep 2009 5:38am

@Magda: Let me be clearer. Go back to the August 26 shot. If you take those steps to the top of the bluff in the upper right of the shot, that's where I was at the time Phil took today's shot of me. The August 26 & 27 photographs were taken from down on the beach.

Good photo realy not silly. Maybe it'll be interesting to see tomorrow the photograph he was taken.

8 Sep 2009 9:28am

@Manel: Actually this series from our photo guild's trip to the Coast has now come to an end. If you want to see a couple of shots from when I dropped off of the bluff and went down to the beach, go to August 26&27.

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

Great and foggy shot of you, Jack. It seems so funny to see you in such warm clothes, when shorts and sandals are still the 'uniform of the day' down here!

8 Sep 2009 11:29am

MJ from Delaware, United States

Great foggy day... and it was good of your buddy to take a pict of you....

@Yvonne Simons: The person in the photograph is me. The person who took the photograph is a friend.

That fog is a marvelous condition under which to take coastal picture. Nice to see you and your set up for taking pictures.

Superbe ce paysage brumeux

Ajay from Pune, India

What a beautiful scene and that's what I would call seriously involved in photography with that tripod.

8 Sep 2009 6:34pm

@Ajay: I didn't get any decent shots from up there, but when I dropped down onto the beach, I got an overload of fine photograph. To see the bluff, go to my August 26 post; it was at the top of the stairs.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States


8 Sep 2009 6:44pm

@Steve Rice: Thanks; in more ways than one.

marc battault from clermont ferrand, France

hi jack! the artist is at his post! passion is!

8 Sep 2009 6:57pm

@marc battault: At his passion indeed!

shallowregret from Kongsberg, Norway

nice, hope you got your shot. And remember it is okay to smile :)

8 Sep 2009 7:31pm

@shallowregret: Nothing from the top of the bluff while the fog was still in, where I was in this photograph, turned out very well. I got some nice foggy shots down on the beach (August 26 & 27). About smiling, I didn't have a clue that Phil was taking this photograph.

k@ from Paris, France

Not silly at all, I love to see (even in the mist :) who we all are - nice to meet you dear Jack !
Great figure and cool cap :-)

8 Sep 2009 8:41pm

@k@: Merci. The logo on the cap is "Livestrong" from Lance Armstrong's cancer program. I wore the yellow bracelet for a number of years (my how time flies).

LauraS from Chico, United States

Ah, Jack, nice to see one of you in here. Great idea as it is silly to see YOU on your own photoblog.

8 Sep 2009 8:57pm

@LauraS: It's definitely not a self-portrait. I had no idea that Phil was taking it.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A photographer who maintains his camera and tripod BEHIND the fence line??!! I've never seen that happen before. ;-) The fog works well here, softening the background while leaving the foreground fully exposed. Love the disappearing fence line.

8 Sep 2009 9:15pm

@Steven: All the credit goes to Phil.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Nothing silly about it!!! it's a wonderful shot, and that fog is just luscious!!! Kudos to Phil for catching you at work!!!

That old guy needs a shorter camera : ] best...jerry

8 Sep 2009 11:48pm

@ordinaryimages: Your age detector is pretty good!!

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

A nice portrait of the photographer with a surrounding moody fog.

8 Sep 2009 11:58pm

@akarui: Thank you.

SCOTT F. SCHILLING from San Martin, United States

Jack a very nice photograph and although there is fog - you look like you are sharp and the most important thing is you have a fantastic tripod and a great camera!

9 Sep 2009 1:53am

Monique from Koh Samui, Thailand

Great to see you in action Jack, thanks to your buddy Phil! I like the fog surrounding you and I'm glad there's a fence preventing you from falling down in your enthusiasm to take a photo!

9 Sep 2009 2:35am

bluechameleon from Vancouver, Canada

Beautiful shot! What a scene!

9 Sep 2009 3:45am

@bluechameleon: For Phil, I thank you. It is a gorgeous spot.

Barbara from Florida, United States

The celebrity himself! An image you'll charish since most time is spent behind the camera. Thanks to Phil for giving us this view. I love the foggy atmosphere.

9 Sep 2009 5:19am

@Barbara: I'm with you on the fog. No matter what the weather is at the Coast, good photographers are there for the taking.

Isabelle from Liège, Belgium

Excellent ! You're very concentrated ! :-)

9 Sep 2009 5:14pm

@Isabelle: And that's what made it silly for Silly Tuesday.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Great shot! Nice to see you in action!

10 Sep 2009 2:05am

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(Old West Wales boy), Germany

The lonesome photographer all alone with his tripod :-)

10 Sep 2009 1:07pm

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Alone, yes, but too enchanted to be lonesome!

StarCosmosBleu from Bedford.Qc, Canada

The man at work...what a great shot and some fine surroundings..nice fog too...
