Tree in Fog

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 8 January 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I almost put up another shot of this in which the tree looms much, much bigger. However, it excluded the fence gate, which I really like. In photography, as with life, we rarely get it all.

A wonderful tree. A superb softness due to the fog. And the traffic lights like decorations for Xmas are cute ;)

Magnificent tree in the foreground! Powerfully attracts the eye. There is nothing else in the picture! The cars, the road, the lights ... are confused in the fog! Nice shot JacK!!! Kisses Adela

A fine shot of this tree by the road. I like that the traffic is going both ways. The gate does add interest to the shot. Well done.

Nicely done; moody. I commend to you the lyrics I posted with my own photo today.

It's like that (weather-wise) here, too, and boy does it make me shiver to see your photos. That fog cuts through and chills you to the bone.

Yeah the fence really does add to this. I might have nixed the cars.. but you definitely got it right with the tree and all. Nice.

9 Jan 2010 1:38am

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

The fog here provides a great contrasting background to the tree and its dense canopy of branches.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Leaving the fence in was a great idea.....wonderful shot !

9 Jan 2010 3:17am

Meysam from Montreal, Canada

I like this foggy shot better than the one you posted yesterday. This one has a stronger contrast and at least the closest object (the tree) doesn't seem washed out! The entire photo was foggy yesterday and nothing really popped out. This one is lovely!

Ajay from Pune, India

Right decision, Jack. This one is more than just an average beautiful shot of the tree. The road and activity on the road is adding life to the shot... to my mind.

9 Jan 2010 4:01am

Claudia from Illinois, United States

Fist of all...what a tree, what a tree!! Look at that lovely, old thing! The fog and colors are wonderful here, too. Love it.
