Default Docks in the fog - 2 HDR-panoramas

This is almost the same scene as the already shown: 3 Panoramas of snow and ice and cold weather in Norway: but with a different lighting and mood, alltogether. The time of day is different too, as one can see from the sun's hight (around noon) over the horizon. Due to the northern Latitude, this is about as high as the sun gets during the month of January.

Heavy fog has been covering the coast all morning and on top of that, the still warm sea (as compared to the ice-cold air) generated a big amount of sea-smoke, that came drifting down that sound in big "puffs" (you can see that best in picture # 2), adding to the already limited but strange light. There wasn't much light to take pictures in but it was interesting to try and take those photographs! I always get restless when the lighting gets tough, as the mood and the colors become less predictable and I have to try and catch some of that mood.

these shots are great.

i love the mood by the dense fog and the angle of the sun "even at midday".

i think i slightly prefer #2, the angle away from the sun gives it an extra atmospheric feel to it that is hard to describe.

both are great, thanks for sharing this scene, like nothing we have here.

Excellent work Walter! I second Walter C's comments, my favorite would be #1, it is the darker and more mysterious of the two.

Thank you very much, Hards80 - I really appreciate your 'verdict'...

Well, I'm a 'softy' at heart, Walter - and almost all pictures of mine are mood-based and carried by emotions, rather than brain...

BTW - I remember "Misty" the film (sometimes in the 70'is or 80'is I believe...) with Clint Eastwood as the night radio-DJ - and the tune "Play Misty for me". Thanks for reminding me of that time! (...and make me feel my age ...)

Thank you very much, Bob - Long time no see! I just wish I had your Tokina 11-16 - that would save me making these panoramas all the time!

VERY nice work again, Walter - these are two terrific photos! I slightly prefer the first one because of the same reasons that Bob mentioned... I love the mood they both convey
