Foggy morning

A few weekends ago Kim and I dropped in on her parents for a visit. I don’t know that most people feel the way I do about visiting the in-laws, but I thoroughly our time there. Each trip, no matter how brief, is like a vacation for us. Kim’s family is amazing, and of course I get to spend a lot of time photographing their 1,000 acre farm – maybe that has something to do with it. 🙂

Anyways, on the last visit I woke up around 6ish and headed out with my camera in hand. As I had hoped there was a thick fog everywhere – maybe too think as the sun didn’t get through until well after 9am, by which point I had been lured back indoors by pancakes. But the time in the fog was well worth it – though in retrospect standing in the middle of the road in the early morning fog may not have been the best idea…. Well, I made it out okay.

Hope you like these.

Mike.

  1. Hey Mike,
    I have been meaning to comment a little more on your photos but have been busy trying to get processing cleaned up so I can get out shooting some landscapes. I agree that number 3 is great! You know, I think number one would be really cool if you cropped a little off the left side just to the edge of that hill. There is something about that fuzzy horizon line that adds a lot to the image and I feel it is better appreciated without the flat portion on the very left. I know that centering the subject in an image is usually a bad thing, but I think it works here. I’m with Lee, I enjoy your blog a lot… your writing is very REAL and your love for creating images is very evident. Keep it up!

    • Hey Wayne, I appreciate that you take the time to come by at all, or anyone else for that matter. Your feedback is always insightful and always welcome. Great suggestion on the crop, I’ll give it a try and re-post. Still some more Killarney shots to post too 🙂

      Glad to hear you enjoy the blog. I definitely enjoy writing it. Can’t wait to see your winter landscapes!

  2. Nice shots. I quite like the first image of the lone tree and the blurriness that the fog creates. Number three is interesting as well. I find the road in both photos leads my eye away from the scene but not out of the picture since it ends in the thick fog. Well done.

    • Thanks for dropping by Scott! I was quite happy with the motion blur as well. I love shooting in the thick fog, as the world just sees to disappear into nothing. I think it creates a lot of mystery in the photos.

  3. Great Stuff Mike. I even remember the in-laws farm just from reading your blog. It looks and sounds like a great place. What a great lesson on light… I often hear people talk about good light and bad light and with this post you set the bar high showing everyone that no matter what the lighting conditions we can still get some great shots. I think number three is my favorite with the fourth photo coming close (I love the hint of all the great colours that the fourth one give us a peak at). Great stuff MIke I enjoy your blog, keep it going.

    • Thanks for your comments Lee! The farm is definitely an amazing place to be. I think what you say is true: that great shots can be taken regardless of the light. The light is always there. I think it just a matter of learning how to see what light is available and capturing it to the best of your abilties. Hopefully I am improving! 🙂
