June 1st, we'd here dense fog warning. The visibility was less than a quarter of a mile. When I saw outside from my patio, even the bird feeder only 20 feet away from me was lost in fog.

I decideed to take my chance to take quick few shots while on the way to office. Left home at 6:30AM, drove 10 minutes down to little country side. I knew I'll find something to shoot in this dense fog. Parked the car road side, and few quick shots.

The row of trees, with this ditch, and flying confused bats, and yes, dense foggy morning.

Fog, always gives that mysterious, vanishing look to any object. Little clear, and still far distance all vanished. Mother nature looks beautiful with that nice shawl of fog over her.

Shooted in RAW. With CS2 Increased contrast and saturation by 50%. Did Apply Image Multiply for 30%. Resized, converted to jpg.

Have a wonderful week! Vandana

Hi Vandana,
I like the moody look and feel of this picture. The small ditch or the stream leads your eyes nicely to the fog covered trees. Very nice composition.

Thats a nice shot. I like the composition with the little creek to the right that disappears into the fog together with the tree line. Great colours and detail. Confused bats...that made me laugh. Cheers, Jens

Gorgeous mood shot! great pov love the birds flying through the fog and the barely there trees. Beautifully captured. TFS

Hi Vandana,
I like this lovely fogly landscape with great atmosfere and I agree with John - One of your best.

Best regards,

Very beautiful and perfectly captured.

Fog in June? Here in my land we have it in winter. December & Janauary are full of fog.

I remember, once Me and one of My friend, we both are on the way going home at 8pm and we could not even see the path and were puzzled and could not follow the path and goes off the road. Then a passerby leads us with his lighter handy.

Fog in June is very interesting, I'll love to see again in winter. Interesting today is that tonight I was dreaming that we have a heavy fog. and after wake up I was thinking how it be possible, but now confirmed that It is done.

Hi Vandana,
Wow...what an impressive picture, it looks like you were in Holland! The mist makes it a veri intrigue picture and the birds are a real bonus in this photo! Well seen excellent excecuted.

Hi Vandana,
What a wonderful moody photo. The fog and the bats really gave this photo an awesome atmosphere. The way the tree line and the ditch disappear into the fog is simply magnificent. Excellent work on the composition and exposure, since fog causes photos to OE really fast. I also like the minimalistic ray of colors.

Hi Vandana,
Superb fuggy mood! Great composition and perspective! A lot of mystery in this image. Very well done! Bravo! Annie

The fact that this is posted reveals that, in spite of dense fog, you were able to find your parked car again! Haha!
This certainly rivals David's fog shots - great atmosphere, and the fog is so thick, you'd think if the birds folded their wings, they would just gently sink to the ground.

Beautiful magical image Vandana. Well exposed with lovely colours.

Regards Mark :)

Vandana, this is a stunning beauty! Apart from some of the birds, that is, I might have cloned some of them out. Still... the scenery is very suitable for the mist effect, perfect light on the mist... and a terrific compo. Compliments, my dear, for the photographer as well as for the D80!
