Photographing Foggy Days

A Tree In The Fog - Stallion Springs, California
ISO 720, f8, 1/125, Nikkor 40mm AF-S DX f/2.8G Micro lens
I love foggy days. There is a certain mystery and peacefulness found when the fog rolls in. Give me a cup of warm coffee to sip and let me breathe deeply the moist air. This is great stuff!

In photography, the peacefulness is often exchanged for uneasiness. Things are hidden. What's behind that veil of grey? Is it safe?

This cloudy veil can be useful. A distracting backgrounds can be completely hidden. It can also create a feeling that would otherwise be impossible. Fog is great for photography.

These photographs were captured over the last two weekends using a Nikon D3300 DSLR. I used Alien Skin Exposure 6 software to post-process them.
