Forces of Nature

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Forces of Nature.”

Fog.  I love shooting in fog, don’t you?  Fog creates this enveloping sense of quiet and isolation, even if you’re not alone.   You can really notice what’s right in front of you and create a good image just from that foreground.   There are literally no background distractions to worry about, and the photo story becomes about the fog.  Not about the tree, or the flower, but about the fog.

Fog is not very destructive, and it’s usually quite temporary; only a real problem when driving through it.  Otherwise, I just enjoy this “softer side” of nature by grabbing my camera and heading out.

The fog helps create low-contrast photos, with muted color tones.  The sun in the upper left corner is trying so hard to break through.  The above pink tulips, when photographed without fog, are vibrant pink with a bright green background.
