Barn in winter mist

Tonight is the third consecutive night of fog in my neck of Chicagoland. Yesterday, I took advantage of the opportunity to shoot some landscapes on a misty winter morning.

This particular barn had several cars and trucks nearby in various stages of disrepair - it took some doing to find an angle and some natural obstructions that minimized their intrusion into the photo, but the barn had such weathered character, I wanted to capture it if I could.

The fenceposts, trees and branches formed a nice frame for the barn. The fog did the rest.

this is my favourite winter picture on the blogs I've seen this month. It looks almost haunted

All,
Thanks for the comments. It did feel haunting at times, with the fog so thick and visibility so low, there were times we felt quite isolated from the rest of the world.
