Foggy morning #2

Trees and Fog: It’s known more for its ability to make objects obscure, but I like the way that fog covers up so much of the clutter between objects in a scene. Distracting backgrounds disappear in the mist, giving the lens and the eye a chance to take in a single element at a time.

So the next time you wake up in or find yourself in a fog, be thankful. You may learn something new.

Fog can be obscuring. It can also be enlightening.

Very very nice. I like the composition of the tree on the side, and the foggyness and the tree hidden in the background totally make the photo.

Tetsu, good to hear from you, and glad you enjoyed the photos.

Eskimo and Ghone, glad you like the framing. I did a basic framing with the camera, then struggled over the crop, trying out several versions before settling on this one!
