Another post from my morning walk around Dove Lake, at Cradle Mountain, Tasmania. It is a series of pictures I keep returning to because I loved the amazing fog and scenery that morning so much. It remains my favorite shoot.
This is one of a few pictures that turned out precisely as I saw it, and precisely how I wanted it. As I did my walk, this one looming tree was perfectly silhouetted against the amazing white fog, and I knew at once that I wanted to capture it. I took several shots and fooled around with the white balance, to try and avoid over-exposure; it turned out the default automatic setting yielded the best shot. Thanks for looking, and if you like this, please feel free to check out my other Cradle Mountain/Dove Lake shots. Also, you may like the work of another photographer, "PeskyPolecat" (http://www.trekearth.com/members/PeskyPolecat/), who does amazing fog-related scenic shots that I really do love.

Like it a lot Michael, the B&W finish works a treat and the tree stands out so well against the white blanket behind, cradled by the detail below. Well seen and captured.

Very nice Michael. I am a fan on silhouette trees and this one stands out very well with the white fog background. Well done

Simple yet powerful. Must be the colors and the close to centered compo. Nice...a fresh approach. Cool shot.
