I was not expecting to get another fog shot till late winter, but yesterday (still Summer in the Southern Hemisphere, this was the scene yesterday morning. I have Kimba (my dog) to thank for getting me earlier than usual for her morning walk. I was probably 5-10 minutes too late for special colours (although theer was a fair bit of cloud on the horizon, but I thought I'd show you a Eerie Summer morning. Mt Albert is about 150-200 meters from the ground.

Hello Jim - Beautifully delicate work. I love the light as it is reflected off the swathes of mist. The subtle details are well captured. I would love to photograph in these conditions. The soft colour palette is just superb. Warm regards Rosemary

A great fog picture... reminds me of similar pictures from Bagan & Mrauk U in Myanmar. The layers are superb & the contrast between the lit up & dark portions effectively brought out. Excellent!

Good Morning Jim,
A strong composition using the advantage of fog. The valley seems so mystical under the strong light and a magical layer of mist. Great colors and details worth digging. Amazing work. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

Absolutely beautiful, subtle photo. What an interesting study of fog, looking down on it, in such a narrow band above the ground. Yes, quite eerie the way the trees and vague dwelling shapes peek out from the fog. The gentle colouration is wonderful in the morning light. Really nice work.

Atmospheric fog shot. Great light and contrasts.
I love that darker line up at the horizon there.

Brume encore très présente sur cette photo, j'apprécie de voir les arbres qui en émergent, preuve que cette brume n'est qu'un tapis pas très haut.
Excellents jeux de lumières.

Beautiful landscape, I like the result with trees and fog, well captured.
adores (41054) 2012-02-21 18:26
You still got a very good shot! The atmosphere is great and colours also!I really like this golden fog covering the field, letting us see just the top of the trees. It was really a good idea to get up earlier:)!
jhm (144304) 2012-02-23 3:54
Fog is a very good additive for photographers, this gives always nice atmosphere pictures
Excellent sharpness and clarity with a lovely panoramic view.
Nice captured and lovely composed.
Very well done, TFS.

Hi Jim,, Who will know if you missed the best part of the misty sunrise.. I dont think it matters- what you have captured its a most unusual affect with the mists sweeping up low over ground level-- - a magical moment - that I would imagine does not last long.. The trees popping their heads above the mists creates the image.. well done Rich

This is breathtaking, the fog really gives a tremendous eerie effect towards the scenery. The silhouette of the trees are nice too! Great capture!

Hello Jim ,
This is a great capture of this landscape in the mist . This one is deep , may be it would have been better if it had been a little less , to seemore details . Nevertheless , the effect is outstanding , especially the hills and some trees emerging from the fog . Stunning to see a perfect beautiful cloudy sky in the BG .

Good Morning Jim,
I always like to see shots from N.Z. as my son vowed he would go to live there, after his working holiday which took him around lots of Australasia. I suppose, I thought I might have to make the trip myself!
It certainly is eerie! It looks like something off a supernatural film, where the evil vapours are moving across the planet, overcoming everything in its path!
Fine composition and a lovely palette of soft hues to create the atmosphere.
Have a good day,

Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov and composition are all excellent here too!
TFS - congrats,
