A Foggy Start Of A Day In Tuscany

Click on the image to see larger

I really love Italy and especially Tuscany.  The Dolomites are another favorite part of Italy I visit often.  This was shot one morning early as the sun was coming up and I caught the fog in the valley.  Made with a Phase One camera and an IQ180 camera, it’s kind of an iconic shot of Tuscany.  I softened it a little bit to add to the feel of the picture.

Tuscany Sunrise

There are few things better than standing on a hill in Tuscany, Italy and watching the sun come up.  Tuscany is a magical place with a charm and feel all its own.  Small villages and magnificent landscapes are everywhere.  I enjoy sunrises when you get the low fog in the valley showing up.  It adds depth and layers to the landscape and the photograph.

I spent the last few days in Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada with Michael and Chris doing Luminous Landscape business. On the way Michael and I stopped in Holland Marsh(Canada) where we had a beautiful fog. I shot these celery harvesters there.  I love shooting in fog and the subject matter here especially the guy with the big knife makes it work beautifully.

Opera House

Foggy morning in Sydney
Foggy morning in Sydney

When I was in Sydney last month I would go out every morning before breakfast and just do street shooting. On two of those mornings it was foggy. Fog and rain always lend a different look to the city. This is an image I made showing the famous Sydney Opera House.  The fog changed the look. The person added something to the shot.  Made with a Fuji X1-Pro  and a 55-200 zoom.

Two Women And The Fog

So while we were on top of this mountain in China I looked down the road and saw these two figures emerging from the fog.  I started shooting them.  They then stopped by a small pond and started to rake some items out of the pond and put these items in they baskets.  They then continued walking.  This shot was made as they began to disappear in the fog the same way they came out of the fog.

Lonely Tree

Tree, Fog and Field, China

The last few weeks I have been in China leading a PODAS workshop.  Interesting are to photography.  Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate much and we were stuck in the thickest fog I have ever seen.  Actually we were in cloud as we were very high up on a Mountain in the  Yusmnyang area of Southwest China.  Never the less every now and then the fog would clear a bit and present some amazing images.  This si a shot of a lonely tree with terraced fields in front as the fog opened up for just one minute.  I opted for grain and BW to give more of the mood to the image.

Fisherman’s Shack – Newfoundland

Newfoundland, Canada - Fisherman's Shack

A few years ago I explored Newfoundland with a group of photographer friends.  Same group I have explored many places with and will spend next week with.  Kind of a mancation with fellow photographers.  Anyway there were lots of opportunities for some great shots in Newfoundland and this is one I like.  Sometimes we believe we always need a sunny day to take pictures.  Some of my best are on rainy and gray days.  This was a gray foggy morning. It works.
