[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's still the fog season and I'm up early to capture the mystical madness in Triunfo Canyon. The Sycamores and Eucalyptus seem to float above a metaphysical force. Sometime I have to pinch myself as I think I may be in a dream. It does take my breath away . . . and the cold morning air warms my soul.

Reminds me of the film gorilla's in the mist.
Well done.
Realy a good moody and well captured thing.
This is not easy!!!!
Love the note!

Hi David,

A good picture of a beautiful scene.

This sure looks like a photo taken in a tropical area! The fog is fantastic. I love all the soft colour tones in your photo. Very well captured David!!

Wonderful shot! You're right it does feel like in a dream. Excellent monochromatic detail throughout. Well done!

Very ethereal David. Beautiful composition. Love your use of diagonals and the contrast between the woods and the mist almost in layers. Being monochromatic reall emphasises the picture too. Well done.

Another beautiful & mystic scene similar to the one you recently put on Treknature! Very spiritual,it makes you dream...and travel.Nicely done!

It seems like a painting...I like the mist on the ground and trees in it.

Hi David, I move through the openness of... we are in a dream. Just a different perspective of it through waking consciousness with some filters added for societal interaction. Well most of us have filters. Anyway, this picture takes my breath away also. Such beautiful serene surroundings to view by the morning soul. It does look like a painting. Great composition and the color of the fog is really spiritual. Awe inspiring....tfs.


wow, it really is like a dream! I like your perspective and angle of capturing these two fog filled valleys. The silver greyish tone fits the picture really well. 30 secs gave you a pretty good exposure. very interesting indeed.

Fog's great David, isn't it! Congratulations on your composition and the effective use of lighting. A very appealing shot.

different tones of grey, lighty fog, again grey shadows, super with the diagonals and strong contrast even if it's fog and not very clear, very nice!
