Single-Image Sunday: The Fog Returns   17 comments

I spent a night up at Lost Lake this past week.  It’s a beautiful place to camp (or rent a cabin), surrounded by forest and with a postcard-view of Mount Hood.  They’re getting set to shut things down up there – the snow is not far away now – so it was quiet.  Weather was sunny and warm everywhere but in the mountains fall has come. That means it got downright cold at night.  As a result the fog moved in overnight and this was the scene at dawn.  If it weren’t for the fog, the frame here would nearly be filled with Mount Hood.  But the fog quickly lifted and the mountain emerged in all its glory.  Fog is scarce in these parts during summer, and its return is a definite sign that fall is here.

I like to relate these posts to the previous Friday’s Foto Talk topic.  In this case it’s actually more relevant to next Friday’s continuation of Sharpness vs. Depth of Field.   This is an example of an image where depth of field is not important.  With some images, like this one, perfect sharpness as well is not all that important.  Let me know what you think about this image, and be sure to read up on this stuff in last Friday’s post plus the second part next week.  Hope your weekend is going well!

  2. I agree, depth of field really doesn’t matter here, which is a bit unusual for a photograph, usually it is an important consideration. This photo has a dreamy feel to it that I really like.

  3. Brilliant photograph!

  4. Absolutely magical! And does look very much like an amazing painting.

  8. It’s like a poetic painting.

  9. Otherworldly and quite beautiful, Michael!


  10. Could be a Monet painting if he’d lived in your part of the world.

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
