[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello, Its been sometime that I have uploaded a photo onto Treklens.

Its winter time here down under in New Zealand, and where I live in the upper North Island we dont often see FOG, but on Tuesday morning we awoke to some fog, but by the time I got going most of it had lifted from the Weiti River, in Whangaparaoa, but you can see the remains of some fog on the tree tops.

I liked the tones that I was able to catch on this day and reflections.

Thanks for taking a look.

Hello Dawn,
This picture brings us back to the quintessence of winter: purity, simplicity, serenity, all of these features appropriately expressed by your balanced composition and the subdued but rich colours. A palpable mood!
TFS & kind regards,

Sublime shot Dawn, great use of pano for this too. Nice light, good symmetry with the reflection and you've nailed the wintery mood.

Ah yes, the fog we had this week - beautifully captured Dawn.
I do like your composition here Dawn with the trees on the other bank reflecting in the still water - it looks like a mirror. They stand out so well against the foggy BG
Well done MF

What a wonderful surprise !
Love this !!!

Hello Dawn
A beautiful scenery.....its amazing and very well taken, great job. love the dark mood, superb reflection.


Hi Dawn,

It is good to you posting again. I do like the stillness of the water and its reflection. Sharp, well metered, and moody - this is a winner in my eyes. Enjoy your winter.


Ohhhh This is nice Dawn!! Really lovely effect the fog has here! I love your crop here, works very well with this type of shot! So good to see you here again! Well done my friend!

What a fantastic image - :-)

Hello Dawn,

A most delightful shot, hinting at the cold light of winter, with wonderful reflections.
The dispersing mists draws the eyes towards the b/g and adds a sense of mystery, to an already engaging shot.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Dawn
