Foggy Wanderings

Hello, dears!

I took these photos one morning when a light fog covered our farm. Unfortunately, it cleared up pretty quickly, but I was able to get some nice pictures before it did! I love the way fog makes everything just a little bit magical and enchanted-looking, kind of the way snow does in winter. πŸ™‚ Enjoy a foggy walk with me!

Of course I had to start with some pictures of the “Narnia lamppost” in our front yard. It’s so photogenic! πŸ˜›

The lamb’s ear plants in these flowerbeds are so soft and fuzzy. After a rain (or a fog), the tiny hairs collect moisture and make the leaves extra silvery.

I feel like I photograph the same spots on our farm over and over again. πŸ˜› But I love capturing them in different lights and weather and seasons!

Something about wooden fences and big trees go perfectly with fog, don’t you think?

I looooove how simple this picture is, and yet how much of a “mood” it conveys. What does it feel like to you?

I’m not sure what kind of tree this is, but it looks like maybe a walnut judging from the bark and leaves. Possibly a pecan? Anyway, it’s enormous.

Despite the way this picture looks, it was still (mostly) summer during this photoshoot. Fog plus decreased contrast/saturation sure changes the feel of a photo!

Ahh, I loved how the trees framed this path and foggy opening on my walk!

A tip for getting photos extra foggy is to take it from farther away and then crop them or zoom in – the closer you are to your subject, the less foggy it looks, as I’m sure you’ve experienced. See the contrast between the foreground and background?

I love the “aesthetic” of trees in fog. πŸ™‚

My camera doesn’t have a panorama setting, so I just took three photos and “stitched” them together in my editor. It’s not perfect, but I still enjoy doing wide shots since they give you a feel for the atmosphere and surroundings that a normal photo can’t.

This is the same foggy path, photographed on the way back up the hill. So magical!

We’ll end with a photo I took toward the end, when the fog was clearing. I still think it looks neat. The remaining clouds make the field look extra secluded, don’t they?

Hopefully you found those photos enjoyable and somewhat aesthetic to browse through! πŸ™‚ I can’t wait until the next foggy day to take more! Maybe I’ll have to take some portraits or do a different kind of photoshoot. πŸ™‚ But until then…

Which picture was your favorite? Do you like foggy weather too? Doesn’t it make things look magical?

Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
