Thanks Leslie,

You would think that living near the ocean, I would have loads of fog images. But, for some reason, I don't. Or, at least, none that I'm happy with. This one is favorite of mine as it makes me want to look at it and figure out what I'm looking at.

Hi Zig,

Sometimes people take photographs and they spectacularly capture a subject. Sometimes people take photographs and they capture something beyond the expected in a spectacular way. The photos rise above the medium and are/become art. This photograph meets that level of representation. I have been to your site and will purchase this photo in the near future to put on my wall. I have never purchased a photo off the net but this is truly a wonderful capture of a natural setting that is abstract art captured digitally.

OK, OK, I got long winded there. I love, LOVE this photo.

Bill

Yikes!

Thanks for such high praise indeed. I'm glad the image "speaks" to you.

If you are indeed interested in this image send me a private message thru this site. It's just easier as I don't have the "buy" module of smugmug set up as yet.

Hi Penolta & Bynx,

Thanks for the kind words and comments.

When I first posted this image, I had no idea that it would meet with this type of response.




I just would like to thank all of the respondents as it's especially gratifying when I get positive feedback from people whose work I admire and judgement I respect.

sincerely,

Zig
