    • I like that simplicity, too, Adrian…thank you.

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Seeing these together is like wandering through the fog. Thank you.

    • Thank you so much, Lynn!

  3. These are really wonderful. I like the hint of color through the fog, too. Do you ever use a circular polarizing filter? Rick Braveheart says he uses one 50% of the time. I think you can control the visibility of the image through fog. Anyway, these are perfect. 🙂

    • Very nice words, George…thank you. And no, I don’t use any filters yet, although I have an understanding of how they might be utilized. When I processed these with Picasa, I simply added a bit of shadow to enhance the visibility of the trees…and boosted the color a smidgen for accent where it was available….

    The third image looks particularly good with the graduating tint of the trees in the frame.

    • Just a touch…thank you, Victoria.

  6. I heard today that you might be getting more snow soon. I’m hoping that we’ll see the sun soon!

    • We did, Allen…probably just over five inches…and now the sun is out and soooo bright…but the mountains are skirted in fluffy clouds with only the tips poking out, so we can’t see how covered they are….

  7. I want to agree with Lois that “mystical” seems to be the right word for these shots…. all very lovely and then some.

    • “and then some…” Thank you, dear Gunta. 🙂

  8. The third is my favorite too, but I also love the two birds on the branch in the last one. I, too, love shooting in the fog, but I only very rarely have an opportunity. You made excellent use of yours!

    • I like the third one for the color, too, Gary…and good eyes to catch those birds…quietly perched and adding to the mood of the image. Thank you for the nice words. 🙂

  9. I never imagined that fog made a landscape so photogenic. Great shots Scott, and the hints of colour are very effective.

    • It does seem to add a tangible “something,” doesn’t it, Finn? Thank you. 🙂

      February 24, 2013 at 12:23 pm

  10. Tout est dans la suggestion. Magnifique.

    February 23, 2013 at 3:07 am

    • Bien formulé, Val … “tout est dans la suggestion.” J’aime ce que …. Merci.

  11. love fog photography, these are great!!!

    February 23, 2013 at 10:05 am

    • Thank you, Lazaro. 🙂

      February 24, 2013 at 9:28 am

  12. Lovely images Scott! Fog really makes one use a camera!

    February 24, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    • Thank you, Terry…I’m glad they turned-out well. I was using a point-and-shoot for the actual picture-making and then played with the images a little bit to enhance the shapes and color, but truly only a little bit.

      February 28, 2013 at 8:11 pm

  13. These are quite meditative. I like the barely-there colours.

    February 26, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    • I could get lost in them, Karen…am glad you enjoyed them…thank you.

      February 28, 2013 at 8:12 pm

  14. I love the simplicity and the atmosphere here. Such serene images.

    March 4, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    • Thank you, Susan, I’m glad you liked them…and the thick fog certainly narrows our focus…and does add to the simplicity of the shot.

  15. wonderful series – makes you look again

    May 28, 2013 at 3:29 pm

  16. Oh, yes, very spiritual, Scott. The second picture is gorgeous…..really lovely.

    Scott, I just today came across these for the first time. BREATHTAKING! And so subtle in the same stroke. Wonderful eye for composition. I’m an oil painter in So. Cal. and I don’t get to see this look in our local landscapes. If possible I would appreciate permission to use some of these images as a basis for some oil paintings Thanks , Tim.
