This photo was taken after Willow in Fog and before Willow in Fog II, yet another of my images from 2005 taken at the St Leonards picnic ground on the banks of the North Esk River, the location of my first digital camera photo.

PP Work...colour fade correction 2, digital camera noise removal (noise 50, blend 70), added border and resized.

Hi David,
Looks just like a beautiful watercolour, nice soft lighting penetrating the fog.

Funny thing is we have had a weird fog but not fog in the evenings the last few days. It has just been a strange light, purple tinge over the hills, when I have been where I cant stop to take a photo of course. Like all the rest of TL I love your fog photos, TFS

nice and depressed atmosphere
really calm but sad
like that

Hello David,

i love th mysterious mood created and the patterns created by the willow.

nice capture, tfs Tracey

Hello David,

What a great atmosphere you have created here! Lovely composition! The eyes try so hard to distinguish shapes beyond the drooping twigs but ... it is all mystery! Despite the fog, there are still many colours in evidence!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello David,

Ah!.... my favorite tree.
Like me I like her, with their majestic branches falling daintily and captured by you in these tones, I still fall in love more with her.
Thank you for giving me this beautiful vision!


bonsoir David
bien jolie composition avec une belle ambiance
beaux détails


Very nice David! I like this! So beautiful, so soft looking! You must have LOTS of fog there....if I lived another 20 miles closer to the coast, we would have alot of it too! This is very nice!

Hello David,
A dream-like creation, very artistic photograph!
Presentation is well composed and the muted colours are attractive...

Hello David!
I cannot stop admiring your foggy pictures. This time it's minimalistic like a Chinese painting and very beautiful.

Hi David,
What can I say - the mood is just perfect.
Lovely trees they are and the combination with mist is wonderful.
