Thanks, Liz. Fog dies have a tendency to take away the literal.
Liz’s “subtle” is a perfect descriptor. It’s like a shadow of a ghost. And I can see a face enclosed in the dark enclosure of branches, wearing a cap, looking to the left. I’d like to see it larger, but it seems that WP has taken that away from us. One click gives me a smaller image; a second click on “full screen” gives me another, the same size as the original in the post.

Maybe you are seeing the ghost of some former orchard master. At one time this hill, although called Mount Pollux, was covered with apple trees. Most have now crumbled and the few remaining seem to be stands for poison ivy rather than fruit producers.
I don’t know what WP is doing to your viewing but on my screen the image gets a bit larger with the click.
Did you try a third click on the image? After I click on “full screen,” I click the image again, and it enlarges considerably.
Looks like painting..beautiful photo.
A good example of less is more.
I used to know someone named Les Moore.
I expect he got teased about that. Imagine how people reacted to Ima Hogg, the daughter of a Texas governor. Despite her name, she “was an American society leader, philanthropist, patron and collector of the arts, and one of the most respected women in Texas during the 20th century.”
Any relation to Boss? Also, I forgot but there is a comic character named Les Moore.
Since this is my blog, I’ll share this bit of more tasteless misfortune. My brother had a friend in high school whose last name was Bator. You can guess, I am sure, how he was addressed on occasion.
I feel sorry for your brother’s friend; high school isn’t the kindest place. As for Boss Hogg, I have to wonder if the character’s creator based it in any way on the Texas family. I wasn’t familiar with Boss Hogg or with Funky Winkerbean.
This could be a perfect representation of how the world looks when brain fog sets in. It can be a little difficult to get out of the woods until the fog starts to lift and the path becomes more clear.
Or it could be a representation of my world in general…I’m seemingly always in a fog.
You’ve captured one of my favorite times to walk the woodlands. It’s so quiet and still, and even human feet walking are silent on the damp earth. I like to find a place to sit – an old fallen tree or stump, and wait for something to present itself. The tree you’ve photographed looks like the shape of the hackberry trees here.
I get pretty excited when I wake up to a nice foggy world and anticipate just what you describe, Lori. I am quite happy photographing an amazing sunrise but foggy landscapes are the peace I seek in nature.
A great ghostly image.
Spooky wasn’t my intent but it does apply. Thanks, Robert!
Nice Steve! Very interesting & “moody” at the same time!
Thanks, Reed. That’s a great combo.
Thick as pea soup out there this morning, but just like you show here, the trees are esp. beautiful.
It wasn’t quite that thick here but still plenty to enjoy and the effect gets stronger from a distance so I put a longer lens on the camera and walked back a ways to increase the density. Thanks, Eliza!
As others have mentioned, I love the subtlety of this one. Fog can help create such beauty by narrowing our view to such a small part of the scene.
Thanks, Todd. Fog does help hide some less important elements and allow the main subject to project…or in this case sit quietly in the view.
Two thumbs up! Love the subdued tree form.
Thanks, Denise! Fog is good. 🙂
Such restraint! 🙂
It’s easy to overprocess these. I’ve learned to be soft with the contrast adjustments.
