My previous autumn photo had lots of warm golden light from the sunrise....not this one.
The weather forecast called for a lot of morning fog, and I really wanted to get out there and see how it looks in a photo.
I have several compositions from this 'Derby Reach' park in Fort Langley. They won't be full of bright sunlight, but thats the point i guess.
Wanted to see the differences created by mother nature.
I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed photographing these scenes.
hope you enjoy it.

Couleurs d'automne et brume...une association gagnante, surtout quand le photographe a, comme toi, le sens inné de la composition.

hi, you are very active lately, so many photos not commented from me. Nice shot, the rather melancholic part of autumn.
I planned morning photos of Rose Valley, woke up very early, but not possible to see sunrise when it rains..

un paesaggio malinconico che rispecchia pienamente il periodo, ripreso con maestria in una composizione perfetta.

Truly magical scene here executed with a lovely cold tonality. Indeed, the mist completely changed the atmosphere and made it more melancholic. Beautiful capture!

Wonderful sense of atmosphere in this one, giving this beautiful autumn scene a magical mysterious feel. The lone tables waiting invitingly for someone to sit there and creating a palpable sense of solitude, the colours of the leaves together with the morning fog softening the scene, all combine to produce this lovely image. You captured this moody atmosphere perfectly.

A scene very evocative of the season. I like the misty atmosphere and the nuanced shades of green. Ideally exposed, with good colours and sharpness.

These morning in Belgium also a lot fog with again heavy traffic accidents on the national high way toward Brussels, almost everyday the same situation.
These picture cares for quiet and the benches wait behind the sun
Perspective and depth make these picture attractive.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

There's a fine atmosphere but a rather moody one. The subdued colors and the mist remind us that winter is approaching. Although I find the picture appealing, the thought of the many dark and cold months ahead doesn't please me at all.

a lovely shot this it sums up the tranquillity and flavour of the season of change. Beautiful colours and a tinge of sadness about the summer being gone. Like it a lot!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Le spécialiste de ce genre de composition brumeuse est incontestablement Nicou, le suisse spécialiste de la brume matinale dans les montagnes. Ici,le ciel gris est très difficile à percer mais donne de beaux résultats.

The fog does create great scenes, most often eerie and a little spooky but these autumn colors create a totally different vibe. Mysterious perhaps but not eerie! Nicely done on this fog shot.

Craig, fog is so difficult. Most of the shots I take in fog just look washed out; I've only really succeeded once as far as I'm concerned. The trees in the foreground give a hint of the true colors that would be in this scene on a sunny day. Really nice low POV, letting us see the fence and benches in profile and just a glimpse of the houses on the far bank. Nicely done.

Hello dear Craig,
Amazing autumnal scenery perfect captured.
A scene as if out of a fairy tales book !
TFS and best regards

Hi Craig,i like a lot atmospheres like this,whit the autumn colors in the morning mist,waiting the same in my country,it's enought to watch your for now..ehehe...fantastic work in PP,looks like a peinture! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Well, I'd say it looks GREAT in a photo! I mean, what would this scene be without it....still appealing, yes....but what a transformation it takes on with its presence!
Fog always makes me think of London on a dark night, walking around those old cobbled streets with faint light from the lamp post's to make your way around....waiting for something mysterious to happen. :)
I think this entire scene is enhanced by the fog, and plus...the dull greyish tone makes for some good contrast against the leaves and grass. I really like what its done here, and I love the incentive to try new things. I'm sure you would agree, the "ideal" conditions are not always the ones that net the most effective results. Even if you don't agree, just humor me anyway, yeah? :) Glad you had a good time shooting this, hopefully there are more to come!
Have a great weekend. Take care.
Cheers from Az.,

The hazy fog and mist adds mood mystery and atmosphere and the deserted park seems a little chilly. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the grey blue mist and the yellow green foliage of the trees. Good sharpness and well framed. Tfs!

pleasant autumnal image here. Fine composition. I like the mist and peaceful mood. Weather is similar that in Poland.
Have a nice WE.

Elegant and eye-catching
Thank you and best wishes

indeed,this one is so different from your previous shot(at least when it comes to its color scheme),but it conveys as good as your previous shot the mood of the photographed scene.For me the scene has mysterious,but also kind of melancholic feeling.
I see you enjoy more and more to take nature shots:)and with really superb results!
Have a nice sunday

io sono un inguaribile romantico e le riprese della natura quando gli alberi ed il poaesaggio sfumano nella nebbia sono tra le mie preferite.
In questa c'è tutta la tristezza della stagione fredda che si avvicina a grandi passi, gli alberi già cedono le loro foglie e le persone preferiscono il caldo della casa a questo luogo.
Molto gradevole la composizione, ed eccellente, come sempre, la nitidezza, la cura del colore ed il contrasto.
Ciao e buona domenica

Good frame to show a fascinating garden view, all these big trees are still colourful and attractive although it is a misty day, distinct photo, good shoot.
adores (40392) 2013-10-25 17:03
I like the tonalities of the trees on this foggy day. They look different but with a magical atmosphere. Also that fence and empty benches add a lot to the composition!

The mist together with the early morning light creates a fine atmosphere for this autumnal report from the well known (thanks to you) park. October/beginning of nowemeber is when the autumn colours are at the best here as well, but we`ve had a week now with overcast weather and some rain. A well collected scene with fine autumnal colours:) TFS.
Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling
