  1. Reminds me of the old farm administration photos. It has the feel of old analogue film. I like it very much.

    • Thank you, George. In the coming months, I’m hoping to experiment a bit with analog photography, actually. I feel like I have a severe gap in my education and understanding about photography, since my experience is limited entirely to digital photography. I need to remedy that. I am also eager to learn how to print my own photographs in a darkroom.

  2. I think, this is The Photograph showing your psyche.
    Almost obsessive close gaze and in the same time
    longing to be absorbed into the cosmic void 😉
    Beautiful Photo !

    • Another very interesting remark, Yoshi-sensei. I am indeed quite drawn to the darkness in this image; I like to imagine stepping right into it to see where it leads. Thank you for your generous compliment!

  4. Very nice. So atmospheric. I do wish I had some fog to photograph. And snow.

    • Thanks, Ashely. I can’t wait to get up to Maine at the end of the month. One of my favorite subjects is pond ice. There is lots of fog, there, too, well, and snow. 🙂

    yoshizen is right !
    The place you shot is (more or less) 500 yards from my home !!! It’s the dwelling of the soul.
    Nice day

  8. I like the dark furrow and the dark tree, it makes the perspective really powerful. I don’t know if you followed the comment thread on my last post but you may like a bit more documentary but fascinating stuff.

    • Thank you, Sarah. I checked out the link you shared and love what I saw. His photographs are amazing. Is that photograph on his home page the same tree you photographed?! It looks like it must be!!

  9. What a great shot. Just the right amount of texture and detail, and a really nice aged feel to it. Love the way it fades.

    • Thank you, Richard. The fog yesterday was exceptionally thick. I’m always so eager to get outside and take advantage of how the fog changes our view of things. It does such wonderful things to the light.

  10. I like the gray mood…very nice, Melanie.

    • Thank you, Scott. It was a gray kind of day… 🙂

      • You’re welcome, Melanie…like a sweet melancholy….

  11. I love mornings like this and often try to get high enough to be above the fog. I haven’t had much luck doing that yet but being in sunshine while looking down upon a misty, foggy valley is a photo worth chasing, I think.

    December 6, 2012 at 11:23 am

    • I agree: that would be a photo worth chasing! I’d love to see that!

    Wonderful composition. I recently saw post on “The Lantern Room” that makes an interesting companion to this image. It is called “December Whisper”.

    • The “December Whisper” post is really wonderful. Thank you for sharing the link!

    Hugs from Colombia.
