Trees in the Fog

One morning last March I went out walking in the fog so I could try making some eerie pictures of the trees.  The trees were still without leaves because spring was still a way off.  There are a couple of places not far from home that have some nicely spread out trees in the fields and I thought they'd be the place to go.  Even though the places weren't far away I decided to drive because the fog was starting to lift as we were getting to mid morning.

The first two photos are at the first location where there a quite a lot of trees fairly close together.  In the first photo the fog is really helping to add some depth into the image.

Already by the second image the fog was starting to go but I was still getting the effect I was after.

I decided to move on to the second place where there are less trees and they are a bit more spread out.  This third photo was really what I was trying to get out of the shooting session with the close tree fairly clear and the further away tree shrouded in mist.

The fog was lifting quickly now so on the third shot the main tree has even got a bit of light on the trunk and the tree in the distance is only partially in the mist.  Even the woods in the background are visible in the image.

Soon the fog was almost gone and there was just a hint of mist in the far background.  The sky was becoming bright and blue and the trees and grass  were being bathed in sunshine.  I seem to remember last March was quite a good month for weather and I hope it's not too long before we get some more good weather.
