Default foggy morning

well we went from high 20s yesterday morning to high 50s today and that led to some heavy fog this morning and since the sun was due to be out (of course since it is Monday and I have to go back to work ) I grabbed the E-PL2, the 14mm f2.5 and the 45mm f1.8 on my way out the door.

Picked out a few at lunch and processed them in Olympus Viewer 2

Sun streaming through the trees (14mm)

Foggy field with moon (14mm) my shadow is clearly visible in the lower left which is a bummer but oh well

same field (45mm)

RA, this is a very nice set. While I like the first group for the color and fog contrasts it is the trees compositions that I am spending time looking at.

Very well done and thanks,

Bob

I'm usually not lucky enough to have a day off and the time to shoot when we have mornings like that. The week we spent in San Francisco in June, 2011 was a lot fun with tons of foggy landscapes. My favorite is the 4th shot in the second set you posted.

Bob - thanks for checking them out. I agree the tree shots really do keep me coming back the first shot from the first set and the last shot from the second set really speak to me the most.

Greg - interesting you pick the shot that I almost left on the editing floor, I am glad I didn't. I love the bay area, it is stunning up the coast towards bodega bay and jenner. Their fog is a more consistent presence, for me it is a matter of knowing what weather sets up a foggy morning and when I think it might be a good one I try to pack the camera and take a few shots on the way to work, as I did yesterday.

I went out shooting to try the 45 as it is new to me but I was glad I brought the 14. Don't get me wrong the 45 is just as great as I expected, if you go 1:1 on the field shot you can count the branches on the mid ground trees, that's pretty damn sharp imho considering the atmospheric conditions. But the 14 always has a way of capturing grandeur and colors that makes me happy.

Nice series. I really like the second shot of the second set. Was that taken with the 45mm or the 14mm and then cropped?

it was taken with the 45, as were the next two.

That's one nice lens. I just wish it was 30mm instead of 45mm. I find 45mm on a m4/3 a bit limiting.

G'day mate

Well - I'm more of a landscape fella who likes pano-style wide images
so I've fiddled with #2 of set #1

As to your shadow - to me, it's great to have it there


To me, this could easily hang on the loungeroom wall
Regards, Phil
