Tree in fog

The wonderful thing about taking photos in fog is the way the fog eliminates potential distractions in the background. Objects stand out on their own and compositions are simplified. Metering can be a bit tricky, but once you've worked out the exposure compensation, you're good to go.

The unusual shape of this tree, its frost-coated branches, the placement of the sun straining through the mist and the simple composition makes for an interesting photo, IMHO.

Additional foggy photos, besides the ones I've posted this week, can be found here, here and here.

Another beauty. Cuts right through all the day-to-day crap, and highlights what's wonderful in this life. Bravo!
