Images for “One Word Photo Challenge: Foggy

Growing up on a farm on a river in Virginia, foggy scenes were common. The photo of the boat with the catfish pots was taken with an Argus C3 Rangefinder 35MM camera using Kodachrome transparency film, probably in 1956. So this is a “full color” image. I was standing on a dock that extended about 60 feet from the bank. The other side of the river–a shoreline lined with tall trees–is less than 100 yards beyond the boat.

More recently, on an early morning drive along the James River in Virginia, the fog offered many eerily obscure images. The cypress tree is very common throughout the southeast waterways. It is adapted to living with it roots in the water. It is also the only conifer (usually evergreen) to shed it needles every winter.

    Lovely spectral images – fog does lend mystery and enchantment to landscape and that lovely muffled sound surround. Regards Thom.

    Wow, I don’t know that I can say it any better than Thom. These images are beautiful. I love that you’ve included one taken on film from 1956.
