Mystical Fog

Fog is incredibly mystical for me.

Vincent Laforet - “Images are happening around you every second. You can photograph anything in a million different ways, but what I always try to remember is to photograph something as if I’ve discovered it for the first time. And if I have photographed it before, I find a way to see it as I’ve never seen it before.”

NIKON D700 1/100 second F/5.6 ISO 400 38 mm (35mm equiv.)

Love how the lines of the trees are softened in the fog - beautiful vibrant green emerges as well in this light.

I am always entranced with the mood of fog... I love how soft and tranquil this scene in the forest is. Your quote today rings so true... shooting stock images for 10 years in Charleston, it is a challenge for me to routinely photograph something new and different, even though the subjects are the same over and over.

The greens and nearby trees make a fine foreground for the fog's dispersion in the distance. I agree… fog improves many shots.

Beautifully composed. The fog seems to make the moss stand out (nicely) on the trees.
