Teresat celebrates her birthday on the 29th of August, may your day be filled with joy and happiness Teresat.

Teresat enjoys my moody fog photos so here is one from June this year. Winter in Tasmania has been a strange affair, very cold by Tasmanian standards but not a great deal of lingering fog. Localised fog patches, icy roads and snow in some areas that have never experienced snow falls before, the from camera version appears in the workshop .

Hi David
Wonderful present for Teresat
Excellent details and clarity
Very well done

Hi David,
Beautiful composition with the bus on the bridge, the ship on the river and the fog. It makes it a mystic composition, very well captured scene. Good job, TFS!
Best wishes,

L'atmosphère brumeuse convient bien à ce genre de photo.
Bonne journée.

Amazing color. Good light and bright, very good sharp. Original job.
best regards

Morning David, the calm of the boat in the water, set against the hustle and bustle on the bridge, very nice.


Perfect exposure David, and with terrific atmosphere. The bridge and its details are well captured, the vehicles and the boats below are wholesome elements. Teresa will be pleased with this. Danilo

Hi David,
Very good placement of the subjects in your image, boat, bus and pole in the right side compose a beautiful imaginary arch keeping our glance into the image. The fog is finely rendered, as usual! Bravo! Annie

This is really nice and I know Theresa will love this one! Nice fog action here, did you clarify? I'm not sure about that dark glow around the bridge.....was that from clarification? Anyways, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Theresa!

Hi David It is a fantastic view as i understand Tasmania similer to New Zealand same climate have a nice weekend bye Shimon

Hello David

A splendid fog composition nce again and a beautiful present for Teresat. The details are excellent as ussal and your notes are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards and enjoy the weekend!


Hi dear friend,
nice dedication for a good friend.
Lovely tones and textures in your shot.
Even if the bridge is a little tilted, the boat balances the view.
Have a lovely Sunday.

Dear sailor man
I hope my trip it will be so great as your moody fog. They are full of mistery, very well captured and framed. Always. This one is especial for me.
Without words to express mysef I send You words from Fernand Pessoa:
Was it worth the effort? Anything´s worth it
If the soul´s not petty.
If you´d sail beyond the Cape
Sail you must past cares,past grief.
God gave perils to the sea ans sheer depth,
But mirroned heaven there."
Obrigada Mr David Gumprich, Known by me as "sailor man" because its sea, its boats and the soul.
Um abraço

Hi David
Wonderful capture and lovely birthday dedication.
Fantastic composition,magic atmosphere.Great!
Friendly greetings

Hello David,
Great capture, very well composed. It seems we are looking fot two diferent world's at the same time:
- One clear where the traffic crosses the bridge in a day by day bases;
- The other, under the bridge where a boat stays, quiet and calm, into the fog (a memory and dreamy element).
This duality is sublim, very well captured, and, for me, represents the two sides of our lifes. Excelent work my friend, congrats, and allow me associate my wishes to yours.

And who wouldn't enjoy your moody pictures David.

Teresa will and I sure do love them as well.

Excellent work again - please relax and take your time to recover - wish you all the best!


Hello David,

Another of your wonderful, moody, misty scenes. It is strange how the calm, tranquil atmosphere envelops the boat in the f/g and the trees in the b/g, yet the busy hustle and bustle of the traffic, across the bridge, continues unaffected by mood and mist.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

All the best and take it easy,listen to your body David!

Very bautiful gift with wonderful note(I liked this quote of author unknown-try to remember:))

and your misty pics are always so beautiful to me:))I really enjoy them :))

and ..I really do hope you'll get better very soon...and be careful... steroids can be very useful,but also can be very dangerous(I felt that on my own skin)

All the best and get better very soon

Hi David,
I see that you are still posting these wonderful fog photos. You have such a keen eye to capture the mood in these photos. I like how you composed this shot with the boat in the perfect position. The details and your PP work are great.

Sorry for my delay to react at your kind words, David.
You've been blessed to encounter a two-stage fog that provides a double mystical mood to
the scenery.
Have a g'day.

Beautiful capture, great mood. Very well done. Best Regards Clanyi
