June 13, 2010

I had to head to Ithaca for a new hard drive.  My 1 terabyte drive, and my 750 gigabyte drive are both full of photos.  It's time to move up to a 2 terabyte drive.

I've mentioned in the past that I sometimes have a place in mind where I want to come back and take photographs.  This particular area is one that I have looked at since I was a child.  Near this area there is a group of Willow Trees around a pond in the middle of a field.  As a child I used to tell my parents that the pond was the puddle that the Weeping Willows made. 

Today as I passed this area the fog was just right.  I stopped and took some photographs.  The Willows were to far away to get the type of photo that I wanted, but I thought this one worked well.

Photo details: Exposure time 1/320 sec, Aperture f/5.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 70 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, hand held.

Nice composition Steve. I like the fence in the foreground and the fog really makes the shot!

I agree, beautiful! Great composition, soft colors, and ethereal effect of the fog.

Very cool. Have you ever seen the movie, The Others?
This reminds me of that. If you haven't seen it I don't want to spoil it for you, but there is this fog that is always surrounding their house. Mysterioso!

I did see the movie "The Others", but it's been a while. I had forgotten about the fog.

I love how fog shifts colors and paints a scene with just a bit of melancholy. Your composition choice - near, mid-range and far - only accentuates the mood. As ever, artfully composed, sir.
