12.11.2015 Foggy Goodness

We’ve had a couple of foggy starts to our days recently and this morning was another.  It has actually stayed foggy in spots all day although there is a hint of sunshine as a chaser.  I’ve been thinking of this tree for a while and today seemed to be the right time.

    It’s like a negative of a ice impression or maybe a foliose lichen. Beautiful Steve.

    I was surprised by the number of broken branches I saw in the enlargements. I wonder if the space on the left is evidence of the loss of a larger limb. it’s such a lovely tree — the fine limbs/branches almost look feathery.

    • If it is from a loss, it would be an old one as the tree looks pretty solid. They do sometime grow a little asymmetric if a twig was broken early on. I think trees are lovely at all times, but leafless really lets their structure show itself off well. Seen like this, it reminds of the patterns water makes in sand as it flows. It’s curious how the many tributaries that make up a stream can be recreated as the stream flows out onto the beach or delta plain.


  4. I’d love a day that stayed foggy so I could go out and play (photographically).

  5. I can certainly see why this tree was on your mind, it’s gorgeous! I love the shape of it and all those beautiful branches. The detail in this image is amazing, including those wispy trees in the background. Love it.

  7. By the way: have you ever experimented with pushing the Clarity slider way to the left to create a foggy effect in a picture that doesn’t have any real fog?


    • Yes and no, Steve. I have done left slides with clarity, but not to create fog. I’ll enhance it that way or also build a bit more softness in areas combined with the gradient n.d. tool in ACR.
