Another foggy morning

We’ve had lots of foggy mornings lately. I grabbed my camera to take the above picture not so much for the fog as to get the bright oranges and reds on the Japanese Maple tree in the bottom of the picture. Unfortunately, if I focused on the leaves and had them show up in true color in the picture the sky (and everything else) would turn white and you couldn’t see the fog or mountain tops. It was either colorful leaves or sky/mountains/fog. I couldn’t get both in a single picture even though that is what my natural eyes were seeing. Oh well, it’s still a decent photograph anyway.

    I think you made the right choice – this is a lovely photo and the trees in silhouette work fine. A lot of photographers now (including myself) are experimenting with HDR software such as Photomatix to deal with high dynamic range situations such as you experienced here. It doesn’t always work and is often overdone but sometimes it can give you just exactly what you were seeing.

    Wow – what a stunning picture. I love it with the light, the long thin cloud and the fog
