Treklens.. These tree's are the luckiest trees in the US. Why ?

Well..It seems a good idea to me .. to drink a few glasses of whiskey .. for a more relaxed driving style and with 100 miles p/h ... these trees were lucky to remain where they stood.. otherwise I would have run them over!! Hope you like this new addition to my Mist series and forgive me my misty whiskey mood :)

Thanks, Vandana

PS: .. John T.. When you and the guys pick me up in a few weeks on A'dam airport.. pleasse bring a few bottles of Vodka .. we might all a bit emotional .. thanks John

I borrowed a proverb from JT .. To warn all TL Ladies

Don't accept rides from strange men, and remember that all men are strange.

Hi my friend. A beautiful capture of the mist covering the trees. Love the alignment of the trees, superb POV and composition.



Beautifully simple ... and simply beautiful. ;)

Lovely effect from the diffuse light in this fog, nice POV.

Well done

Hello Vandana

The fog adds mood & atmosphere. I like the diminishing linear perspective of the row of trees, going from right to left. Good work!

I usually prefer sunlight, but I must admit this mist creates a nice mood, Vandana. The treeline's perspective creates a terrific compo, you chose the exact right angle.
TFS and... don't drink & drive ;o)

Hello Vandana..

Bonita composición, me gusta el efecto niebla como si los arboles quisieran escapar de ella.



hi, vandana
always a fine world full of bright, uniform light and mysteries these misty mornings when you feel something good is gonna come... of course, you should be very careful, never know what you might lose...
wish you and your friends all the best,

Cheers, Vanny. Proost. haha
Lucky trees they are.
AND you, the police is not on Treklens. hihi.
Well, atleast you were seeing the mist, didn't you?
Beautiful misterious picture.

Beautiful as usual.
Superb detailed and colours.
This is a great misty shot my friend.
And drinks??
Dont worry.. 2/3 of Holland drivers drink all day..
the only way to remain calm..
Think.. 16 million people in a small country.. all in a hurry all the time in traffic..
No you will like our driving and even our cars run on alcohol!!


Hi Vannie,
Geat misty picture and so is your note *hic* don't worry about the booze. But at what time will you arrive?
Fine posting sleep well, your budy is in good hands ;-)


Looking forward to meet the mother of my D70s ;-)

:) Later...

Hi Vandana :o)
Wonderful shot ! I like the fog and alignment of trees. Did you drink to drive and capture this shot ? I don't really understand your note :o/
Great mood and full of serenity, congrats

Hej Vandana
What a wonderful capture, the mode in it is outstanding. Great job, you have once agin done it. Compliments and TFS.

Hi Vandana,

Hahaha, great note. Especially the bottom line :-).
Gosh, that is bad luck that I'm getting slammed here in Indonesia. Hope someone picks me up when I get home in some months with a few good bottles ;-).

Drinking in my car is the only way to focus my camera on the road in front while I'm steering with my knees. I can see where you're coming from!

Greetings, Dennis

Hi Vandana.
It looks very atmospheric.
You are also very lucky because of these trees.

Yes, very mysterious and beautiful...
It makesyou 'feel' the fog...
another super post here, Vandana!

WONDERFUL Vandana! LOVE the fog! The smoothness and exposure is perfect! Very dreamy! I love pics like this! superb!

Well Vandana I am very impressed with the way you left the trees standing. Soft colors wonderful mood well captured and quality composition.

I now have my 18-200 just have to put it to use. This is a wonderful example of what it will do.


Beautiful scene, I like those green tones, the framing and the foggy atmosphere.



Hi friend!Great as usually.

A lovely composition Vandana. A misty morning in August pefectly captured here. Nice subdued colours and tonal range.
Well done!

This is what makes a morning glorious... the fog, it's so lovely, it can easily raise ones' spirits! I like the excess green in the image, it's cold but it still remains pleasant. I like the image, it's very- brisk! TFS Vandana.

Love the mood here.

Great prespective and cold scenery... TFS

Hi Vandana!
Hmmm....moody.I like it.

Hai Vandana,
Very good picture from yhese trees in the fog,
Gr, Jacqueline

Beautiful photo - good colours and capture:)

Good moody shot. Fog can be a challange to shot. It's been real foggy around here lately. Today was the first day I saw the sun set without the fog.

Wonderfull Vanny
You are good in 'foggy' situations :-) Bye
To bad I am away 3 weeks in Sept
Cursus - vacation .. have too, its for my work
but so sorry I miss seeing you this time.

Hi Vandana,

I like this foggy picture . . Presents an uncertainty . . It can be used for motivational poster - "If you don't clear what to do, find out till you understand" . . I like your note too . . ha ha . . we all strange but not stranger . .


Many thanks for your kind words on "Crown crane".

Hello Vandana, Wonderful compo and great shot.Very beautiful color and details.mysterious athmosphere here.Well done my friend.tfs.

Well Vandana, as regards to your note I have a solution - one John will not be too pleased with. Ad and me will also be there to pick you up, so you can also ride with me-:))
This I tell you to make you even more nervous and emotional - if it will do you good, then I can pack a nice botlle of malt whisky - better have it at the ready otherwise I will forget it.
As for the misty morning - it can well be Holland in September - so a good preparation for you. I did not know drinking and driving was allowed - but no fear here in Holland there will be many drivers at your service.
So - do I succeed in getting you emotional already - I just love being emotional and I can blame my age -;)

Beautiful image full of atmoshere Vandana, lovely.

Regards Mark :)

Hello Vandana,
This is lovely!
A good diagonal composition, where the special mood is created by the fog...
Autumn is fog season in my place, so hopefully I'll get the opportunity soon!
