11.01.2021 Monochrome Monday-Fog in the Valley

A few moments after shooting “A Piece of Sky” on the 17th I looked down in the valley and saw this small area of foggy pines.

North Quabbin is often filled with ground fog and the possibilities are varied depending on the thickness and movement through the valleys between the many hills.

I am wondering how you are seeing the size of the images.  Most are at 900 pixels high but some of the landscapes I post are 1200 high.  Does that seem too big.?  My display is 30″ so 1200 seems very large but if you are using a smaller display, a laptop, or a phone how does that size compare to 900?

    I tend to view your images on my desktop monitor, which is 24 inches. The images do not appear to be unusually large to me.

  2. This size which you posted today is coming up at full size (largest that WordPress will display) when I open it as a stand-alone image. This is being displayed on my 24″ monitor, and the size is what I like to see for good detail viewing.

    • Good to know, Bob. I had been posting larger because of something Facebook started doing with the posts and was told a larger file would eliminate the problem. Not sure larger did but it did get me to share bigger images.


  3. Looking through Reader on an IPad the size is very good. The theme prevents selecting an image to view full size though.

    Great monochrome created by nature, not by processing, I suppose!

  5. When I click this picture I get to see it on my 27″ Retina Display with plenty of black all around it, which looks good to me. A larger image might fill my display from top to bottom and reduce or even eliminate the black border.

    I almost always view images on my desktop, which has a 24″ display. This looks just fine, although like Steve I lost the black border at the top when I enlarged. Doing a Ctrl- (or Ctrl+) is useful in a situation like that, although I have to remember to get myself back to my preferred size. I was wondering why the text here was so small, and I just realized that the reduction in the image size had carried over to your blog as a whole (although not to other sites — weird).

    • When I tried out the adjustment I didn’t reduce it thinking it only affected the image as you did. Another lesson learned. And good to know when the text is tiny in an article online. I guess I’ll continue with mostly 900px high except for some grand landscapes.

    These detail shots in fog are so nice. Viewing them I often feel something just outside my ability to verbalize. As for the sizes, I think my monitor is 27″ so I’ve not had any problems with the sizes. I rarely use my phone for viewing anything on the web. I did notice your post for today (11/2) has a photo that extends into the side bar, at least how I’m viewing it. Not sure what’s different about that one.

  8. Oh … I love it! The B&W conversion works very well.

    I love this, Steve. I always view blogs on my desktop, with a pretty decent monitor, and naturally, it looks great. 🙂
