05.30.2020-2 Saturday Morning Fog Hangover

Here is one more image from foggy Quabbin Hill this past Wednesday morning.  After the two trees shot and the violets, I thought I’d walk a bit further up the road and see if there were any more compositions that might be worth shooting.  I did a few but this, which was the first, turned out worth sharing.

I liked the glow and it also reminded me of a shot I made last year with the old iPhone that wasn’t large enough, even with GigaPixel AI, to make into a print. That was an autumn shot but the general feel was similar.

  1. Londoners talk about a heavy fog as a real pea-soup-er. Yours, while not so thick, has the right color.

  2. That’s really cool! Keep the images coming! Used to love shooting in fog, but hardly do any now! But really enjoy yours!

    I love fog too, Steve, though I have not had too much success capturing it the few times that I have tried. I find it to be especially difficult in nature shots, because it seems so hard to come up with a good composition–I have the same problem with most landscape shots. One of the few times that I recall being happy with a fog shot was in an urban setting, during a work trip to Vienna 5+ years ago. (https://michaelqpowell.com/2014/12/17/foggy-morning-in-vienna/)

    • I especially like the view through the arch, Mike. Like all things, it takes time and practice. Most of my early attempts were not much to talk about but over time I have become a bit better and have a few good go to’s for compositions locally.

    I like the delicacy of the color, and the sense of openness.

    I love the green glow, too. This looks like a very nice woodland. is it managed to keep brush under control?

    • Thanks, Melissa. It is somewhat controlled. The hill is in Quabbin Park and the entire reservoir watershed is managed for water runoff to aid collection. There isn’t much tree cutting in the park proper but the rest of the acreage is harvested both for increased water flow into the reservoir and not allowing the land to become overgrown. It’s a fine balance. They cut trees to increase flow but allow a deer hunt to keep the browse from killing too many young trees.


    • I forgot to mention that most of the undergrowth is blueberry bushes and I am sure the deer manage them quite fine. 🙂

    I also like that green glow, and how it all fades away to nothing in the not too far away background. These shots almost always have a calming feeling to me. Really nice photo, Steve.
