Sometimes the fog was so thick you couldn't see anything.

You've caught that wonderfully odd color that shows up in the fog...when you CAN see. Beautifully captured!

Foreground = life.

The vivid plant life makes a good subject against the fog. Works for me.

The tone and clarity is magnificent. I feel as though I am actually there.
I like the background rock form in the fog.

I can see those lovely flowers and the fog creates a beautiful atmosphere in the background.

so peaceful - silence in the midst of the flowers - with the hills in the backround. Lovely.

@Becky: those are sea stacks

I like the yellow tendancy of the picture with this mountain which give the impression to be yet on holidays

7 Oct 2010 7:17pm

@kerfendal: it's a sea stack, not a mountain

kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

The focus on the honeysuckle is perfect which makes the misty backdrop seem like its in a different world.

Beautiful! I love how the plant stands out against the background. Lovely colours and light as well

The fog just intensified you colors, Jack. The background could be in the Guilin province of China!

The rich color of the blooms against the fog is just wonderful.

FKMJ took the words right out of my mouth. The fog also acts as a nice "detractor" keeping the attention on the floral blooms, while still subtly revealing the mountain of the background.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Really nice! Photographing in the fog is like being inside a giant softbox!

Jack, this is pretty spectacular. Yes (to answer your Flickr question) I do love autumn though it's pretty much over now up here. A wee bit of colour left on the occassional tree, but nearly all the leaves are on the ground now.
Anyway, I really like this a lot, especially with the foggy background.
PS: I'm away from Friday for the Thanksgiving weekend. See you on Tuesday.

"Sometimes the fog was so thick you couldn't see anything." But you can see just enough. I love how the flowers mimic the shape of the sea stacks(?) behind them in the fog. It's a wonderful composition and juxtaposition.
