Early Morning Foggy Landscapes

Early Morning Foggy Landscapes

   For some reason I fell asleep really early last night and when I woke up I noticed that it was foggy outside. I waited until around 5:30AM before deciding whether or not I wanted to go out and shoot anything. My body wasn't feeling the greatest, but ultimately passion beats pain in a rock, paper scissors shootout and I'm so glad that I decided to chase the light. There's a local park (that I've shot countless amounts of times) which rests at the bottom of a hill and naturally everytime there's early morning fog, the entire park becomes shrouded in mist. Even though I've photographed this place so many times before, I still find new things to shoot or at least new ways of looking at old subjects. When I got to the park, there was a couple of older people going for their morning jog and some who were walking their dogs. I actually used some of these people as subjects to bring a little bit more interest into the photos other than just some foggy trees (HA).

   That tree shot above is something that I've always wanted to do, but never saw the opportunity to take it. The moment I got to the park I saw that tree and instantly a huge smile ran across my face. Just seeing that tree I already knew that this early morning trip at the break of dawn was going to be worth it. Progressively throughout the time I was there, the fog started to dissipate and the sun started rising. I was on a time crunch and eventually I thought I had run out of time as most of the fog was cleared, until I saw the sun peaking over the treetops in the distance (photo in gallery below). I love the colors transitioning from the orange glow of the sunset fading into the pale blue morning sky on the right combined with what remains of the foggy sky in between the trees. When it was all said and done, I think I got some great shots out of my mini adventure. You can check them out in the gallery below in this post. I'm super excited about them, but I'd like to hear what you think about them. Criticism is always appreciated and if you have any photos taken in the fog or experiences you'd like to share, I'd love to hear them. ^_^
