Default Rolling Fog - The Wall

I just can not believe all the fog we've had here this winter. Working with it so much has given me an appreciation for how hard it is to find really good scenes to photograph.

The sun was quite high for 10am and this shot is shooting into the sun. I mounted a 4 stop ND filter to the 70-200 2.8 lens which completely darkened the highlights as well as setting the ISO's to 50 and exposure left of centre by another 2 stops.

That's right, it's always helpful to read some facts about how you did your amazing shots! This one is really cool again

Kevin, that is a fantastic shot, good composition and a great way to use what most people would class as less than ideal conditions.

I echo the others - fantastic shot Kevin. If you haven't already done so, you should start looking into getting your work in a gallery. Really, you've got some very unique work of exceptional quality.

Thanks for commenting. Actually, upon looking at the info, my iso's were set at 160 and left there from a previous shot. I thought I had set it down to 50 and am surprised it was up so high..... In the end, I'm glad it worked out!

Kevin, this is such a great photo... I hesitate to say diddly squat on how to improve it, I experimented a little on my own, I lightened it just a hair... Otherwise, this one is one that is worth framing. Absolutely gorgeous shot.

Thanks Ned. Here is a color version of it for those that prefer color over b/w.

Wow... too cool!!! Thanks for both. The black and white shows a light source circle, that is why I suggested that you lighten just a little. ALSO!!! the cropping in the B&W is better... it just does it all, just that little bit of cropping... but I would lighten it just tiny bit... keep the B&W cropping and keep this... Even the colour version is awesome... mount this and frame this... if you wish, I think you have neat well composed picture. By the way, where is this picture taken? Excellent work!!!

Everything that's been said here by others +
stupendous, astounding, breathtaking - you name one more superlative - it's it! Monumental, spectacular.... - I am running out of words here.

Well done, Kevin!
