An older shot of some layers of trees from South Amherst
For all we know, this could be South America rather than South Amherst.

Shhh. Mary Beth isn’t supposed to know about my international travel.
Nice Steve! Really like this image. You almost expect to see something coming out of the mist / fog!
Thanks, Reed. I was lucky it wasn’t the property owner as it has since been barricaded.
I like the black trunks superimposed on the white fog, and the white leaves shining against the darker landscape. I heard that some freezing fog was happening north of here this morning — is that what’s caused the tree on the left to be so white? I assume it’s that, or frost. The effect is delightful.
This is actually a shot from a May a few years back. It was just the filter effect I chose when converting to black and white that gives the leaves that white appearance.
I love freezing fog, sometimes aka rime frost or ice fog, and the way it coats everything with a fine layer of ice. Not something that would bring Texas to mind right away. I hope some of your fellow Texas photographers got some nice images. Maybe you did get to go see it?
Oh… Well,you fooled me. I just assumed it was natural. No way for me to see any freezing fog that showed up, since it was about three hours away, and probably would have been gone by the time I got there.
Oh, that’s too bad. Although it might be a treat, I probably should not wish you luck having it come closer, should I?
Very cool. Spellbinding shot
Thank you, Robert.
Well this stopped me dead in my tracks. The layering is magnetic. The fog could almost be a body of water. This belongs on a wall.
It stopped me too, Mike. I was driving down the road to another intended destination when my peripheral vision halted me. There actually is water below the fog mid-ground. It is always wet and most often there is some ground fog to be seen. Yes, I think I might print it. It’s funny how images can sit in your archives and appear one day to your surprise as something you overlooked. I did post this back when I made the image but didn’t think much about printing it. Thanks!
I have been similarly stopped by sites, and I have been similarly stopped by images in the archives. One’s vision changes with time.
On my wall, Steve – otherworldly
Fog is like that, changing the world into another space we haven’t been to before. Thanks, Ann-Christine.
What a picture!!!! 🙂
Thank you, M.B.! 🙂
Beautiful fog. It’s a very soft photo, but still so clear. Really good!
Ordinarily being told your photograph is soft isn’t a compliment, but in this case it is. 🙂 Thanks, Maria.
I know, but this was definitely meant as a compliment 🙂
Ethereal and ephemeral. I love the monotone look. This would make a lovely painting. And it should be printed.
Thanks, Yvonne. It shall be.
The atmosphere is magical, Steve. One expects some magic creature to materialize out of the fog…
Yes, fog can be so mysterious. So much can be hidden then suddenly appear. Thanks, Tanja.
We’ve had a few foggy mornings lately and I’ve thought I should have a couple spots preplanned for excursions. But I never seem to know it’s going to be foggy until it is, and then I’ve got something else planned.
This shot turned out particularly nice. Very moody, especially with that solo tree outstanding in his field.
Yes, life does get in the way of our fun sometimes. The tree in the gap was what caught my eye as I drove by and got me to turn around. It is a stellar tree. 🙂
The fog gives a really nice softness to the image. I find that very appealing, and very peaceful. And it’s interesting that lone tree out there just a bit in the fog.
Thanks, Todd. I think peaceful is what I try to communicate in the majority of my images. I am not sure if I can continue to say that with the upcoming winter season as sometimes the ice abstracts and frozen cascades can be a bit tumultuous. But I think that aspect of our experience is there for most of our time communing with Nature.
As I drove past here, with all else on view, or appearing a bit ghostly, the tree was what caught my attention. Fortunately there is not much traffic at that time of day.
