Oaks and Fog

I passed this lane in northern Hillsborough County, Florida on numerous occasions without a second glance. Recently something caught my photographic eye. My first stop occurred in late morning on a clear day – the light contrast providing limited photographic options. I envisioned and waited for a foggy morning with side lighting for a more dramatic effect. I love the warmth of tree trunks caused by the rising sun juxtaposed to the coolness of the dissipating fog.

This image is not quite what I imagined, but the first of what will be multiple attempts. Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

    Beautiful pictures on your blog! How do you like the Nikon D810? I’m still using the D700 and have been thinking about upgrading.

      Thank you! The D810 is an incredible camera. The dynamic range has almost eliminated my use of split NDs.
