324 - Frivolously Searching For Fog

It won’t be long and I will call the simple idea absurd: Going out in the morning (well, driving, actually), down into the valley, searching for fog. But that’s what I did today.

Yesterday morning I had to go to Klagenfurt and was amazed about the sudden feeling of autumn when I dived into the fog, and today I wanted to repeat the experience. I was only partially successful, I guess you can’t repeat experiences like that, because once you’ve had them, you yourself have changed. There is no way around.

On the other hand, when you live somewhere for a long time, you know your places, and this is one of them. It’s an alley at a small road that leads from Ludmannsdorf down to Feistriz.

I shot all of today’s images with the Nikon 18-200 VR, a wonderful lens when you don’t look for certain effects but for certain places. Post-processing was done in Capture NX, and I have only slightly driven colors apart, nothing more. I have tried setting a white and black point. The resulting image looked good, but id did not convey the feeling of fog, thus I have abandoned it.

The Fog” from Kate Bush’s 1989 album “The Sensual World” is the Song of the Day.

Ah. Another of your recent images that I simply cannot pass without comment. And while I don't quite know what to say, I will say this--sweet.
