A little more zoom used here than in Cataract Walk I, the walkers seen previously had passed out of view.

For some reason or other I found myself at the end of July walking the ZigZag track again. One would think being a year older I would be wiser., some images from that walk and the return along the Cataract Walk later.

PP Work...levelled, smart photo fix, digital camera noise removal (noise 30, blend 70), added border and resized.

Ability can take you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

Hi David,
Yhis is stunning my friend, you are the real master of mist! What to add: nothing I'm looking in awe!

Hi David,
You are the master of the fogg photos. This one has such a wonderful mood in it. They way the tree filled hill side shows its silhoutte through the mist is wonderful. I like the way you used the river to draw the eyes into the photo.

Hi David,
Wrapped by the fog, this landscape looks after its mystery. And you have wisdom by not revealing it too much, leaving us the pleasure of imagining the beauty of this scene. Really a very superb photo! Bravo! Annie

Wow! Stunning image! I love the painterly feel of this, with half-seen trees and rocks rising out of the mist. Fabulous mood, colours, details, and textures.
:) done

WOW David! I love this! the softness of it is really nice, the light purple tones, the sharpness is perfect! Love this!
I'll be back.............

Hello David

In fact, years pass, but she continues oh, just a light touch in the change of the landscape, but always firm and imposing. The fog today here seems denser, the look is big!
One more exellent shot and greath presenting.


Hello David,

BEAUTIFUL. Foggy, mysterious, and moody. Very nicely composed, and presented. TFS

Hello Dave!
It's again one of your foggy-misty photos that are so beautiful and moody. Very good pp - if not for your note, it is totally inconspicuous.

hello David
Toujours aussi splendide tes images
belle scéne


Another one of those wonderfully moody pictures that are your signature work! I could see this printed on rice paper: has this oriental sumi look to it!

Just fantastic!
What a good misty view


WOOOOOOW DAVID!!!!i love your pictures more and more!!!

Hi David,
as always, a good capture of this meterological phenomenon.
You do this well :-)

Best regards, Daniel

another great shot of the cataract walk, and another great foggy mist scene! still, i think i like cataract I better because the foliage continues more upwards on the right side.
But still, wonderful photo, and with no surprise, you mastered the fog well!

Beautiful shot. love the mist and powerful mood. well done.

Hi David,
This looks as if it is a painted illustration for a book of fairy-tales.
A most wonderful atmosphere you have created here!
Glad you walked that trail.

Hi David,

I am tempted to give you the title the "Fog-master"! I have said it before all your shots with fog appeal to me and you do a great job in selecting the subjects. Very sharp, well exposed and excellent composition.

WOW Dave!

This is a really exceptional moody photo!
What can I say but very well done!

Hi David,

Hi David
