10.08.2021 Fog Friday

I considered saving this one for Halloween but decided it really isn’t that spooky.The image brightens a bit when you enlarge it.

This was shot on the same day as my Fog Friday post of two weeks ago before we left for Maine. It’s an old apple tree that still gives a few fruits.  How much longer it will survive is questionable.  Mount Pollux used to host a nice little orchard which drew painters as well as photographers. Most are gone now (the trees and, I suppose, some of the artists too) and there are people petitioning the town to replant.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    It even has a few apples still clinging. I’m not sure I’ve seen an untended apple tree in the country, but this one’s branches certainly fit the bill for ‘wild.’

    • It didn’t start that way but wild it is now. I made sure that the apples were easily visible when processing this. There are only a few survivors of the original orchard. I’ll be linking to the exhibit my friend Bernie and I are doing online through our library in November and he will have a few like this as well.

  2. That’s a lovely one. I often find myself (too) tempted to add contrast and punch to fog images. Glad that you resisted… something that I need to remember myself. 😛

    • Thanks, Alex. I tried a few slides in both directions with clarity and ended up leaving it as is. Same thing in PS. I wanted the background to have some luminosity but not to the point the tree was diminished or over cooked either. I am glad that you find the treatment balanced.

    An image full of mystery, which the frog in the other post is trying to solve!

    My first thought was also that I like that you resisted the urge to increase contrast. I, too, would have been tempted. But the minimalist mystery you’ve kept works so well.

    I like the soft and mysterious atmosphere – gentle rather than spooky. 🙂

  7. As you mentioned artists, your tree reminded me of how German Romantic artists sometimes depicted trees, for example

  8. Wonderful effects!
    I’m not so sure I agree with you… This would make a great Halloween photo. Before I read your text, I actually thought how much it seemed like a scene from a spooky movie.
