A tribute to Rickst, the champion of foggy landscapes. The light is going away, every day is shorter than the previous. So I'm glad I can still catch a moment before the winter takes it all away on workdays, leaving me with only weekends to shoot.

Regarding some excuses in other threads: Please, please "hijack" this thread and share your precious views!

Lovely shots, Kjell. Sure wish I could see some fog so I could add them here, but no such luck yet. Will I ever be glad when the cooler weather comes for good, rather than teasing us with a couple of days, only to have heat return.

Nice shots! I, too, don't look forward driving to work in the dark and driving home in the dark. We all work too many hours anyway...

I was also on my way to work yesterday morning really early, but in my case the sun was shining and the mist was rising. On my way to work, I pass the Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney and quickly pulled over to snap a shot with my sigma 18-125. Times like these I really wish I had a 70-200 f/2.8!

Photo taken through the wired fence. I might go back one day to see if I can get better pictures...

I likeit - normally I don't like fences that are as noticeable but out of focus like that, but it works for me with that picture. I gather you can't get close enough to put the lens right up to the fence, but even so, it's a lovely view.

I also like this picture. There are a lot of details to discover bit by bit. I.e. I didn't see the horses until I had looked at the picture for some while. I also agree about the fence. Normally that would be disturbing, but in this picture it adds to the feel of the view.

Harriet: can we get to see some sun please?

Kjell, I like both images, the first, much more than the second. Don't know what others think, but maybe if it was standing format and maybe a little off-centre???

Patang, like Kjell there was more to discover the more one looks at the image - just wondering whether there is too many branches or not - don't know if these add to the image in way of leading to the horses in the foreground or distract from the overall.

What do others think?

Kjell, I really like the first image. I tried to get the layered look, of parallel ridges in the mist, this summer but mine were not successful. Yours are magnificent.

Here was my best attempt:
