Those of you who follow the Monochrome Madness challenge know that we had fog here earlier in the week. It was so nice to see something else besides rain. We actually had three mornings of it, though only one was really thick, the one I went out to take photos in.
I do love this tree. I always think Joshua Tree, of course it isn’t one, but there are some similarities. I have no idea what this tree is.
The other day someone mentioned how quiet landscapes can be when there is fog. I think that is something I really want to try to get. I love the idea of the quiet landscape, and fog is so perfect for that.
Even when it is really busy it still seems very quiet.
When I went over to the swamp I was enjoying watching this black swan cleaning itself. I wished I’d had a bigger lens, but you do what you can with what you have. I have other photos of this too.
The swamp is one of those areas that looks fantastic with fog, though the perfect thing would have been fog and a little bit of sun. I am sure I will get that one day.
All the images were shot with the Nikon D800, with the 24-70mm lens. They were all taken hand held. While it was foggy and it seemed a little dark it wasn’t too dark that I couldn’t hand hold. Looks like I used f/8 for nearly all the photos, and as I was using Aperture Priority the camera set the shutter speed. My ISO was mainly on 640, though I did change it up to 1250 when I was trying to photograph the swan so I could get a faster shutter speed.
Going to put the photos into a gallery for you now. I hope they don’t all seem the same. I hope you get some fantastic weather conditions this weekend to do your own wanderings and get some amazing photos.
