Misty Days of Autumn
On looking out of my window this morning I see fog and very little else. Ah…this will be a great day to photograph the Autumn mist in my local park. I check the forecast and there are a good few hours of mist. Great this will let me have a concentrated morning’s shoot with no worries. Towards mid-day the fog will lift and lingering misty conditions will remain. I imagine the atmosphere of my shots as I head out.
The park is quiet…i like the silence and walk slowly through the mist which envelops the land. I see one or two people hazily in the distance. They are so out of focus and remote from me. It is quiet as I make my way. I hear the crunch of leaves underfoot as I make my way. Trees are tall and as I walk forward to frame my shots I am enveloped in mist. Through the mist leaves appear lacelike, soft and gentle. The lack of detail on their trunks and branches render their surfaces as soft charcoal. I love the land. I take my shots and marvel at the understated beauty around me. All is quiet, all is good. This is to be remembered.
