Fog in the McDonald

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 4 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Today I begin a series of shots from two hikes that Max and I took last week into the McDonald Forest.

Today we return from our trip to the Coast.

Nikon D700 1/60 second F/4.5 ISO 800 50 mm (35mm equiv.)

Phil David Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

I'm impressed with the consistent amazing locations you find. The fog seems
to automatically roll in. Superb framing and processing make for a real gorgeous
photo. Amazing work.

I'm amazed at the amount of green you have in the winter! I can really feel the moisture in the air here, and I can almost feel my shoes sticking in the mud - great shot!

Wow. The green lichen or moss just leaps out in color and detail and beautifully frames this lovely setting.
Sounds like Max is becoming a real nature lover and a wonderful companion. I'm so glad.

... and a beautiful woman with long blond hair... The small wooden bridge to continue his journey to the depths of the forest! The entry of a story we could explain to Faiona. Sure would love. She could probably continue the story! Children have a great imagination. Much more if the grandfather is an artist! Congratulations friend Jack! is a very beautiful picture. A hug y muchos besos amigo! Adela

I like the way the trail winds around in the picture. Wonderful green details and the enhancing fog.
Very nice shot.

Nice one. I like the bridge and the diagonal placement of the trail in the frame. The fog mutes the colors, but there are still many hues and shades.
