Foggy Days


Since I live on the coast, fog is part of my life. Fog may be boring weather to some, but many photographers love the opportunities fog gives them for isolating subjects, creating special atmosphere in their photos and so on. At least I do. Here is one of a lonely boat heading into the fog.


Even a sunrise gets a bit special in the fog.
Both photos where shot in January this year.

Have a nice Week-End!

I used to dislike fog until I started more deeply appreciating photography. These are gorgeous. I like the mood of the monochrome.

I always, always look forward to your photos and am never disappointed.

I wish we had fog here. For all that I live by the sea, there rarely ever is any. (Unlike when I lived on the coast of Fife in Scotland. I don't know if the difference is because I live now in the south or no longer in the east.)

love the lonely boat - thanks for the comment on the contrails - the only nearby airport is Manchester and I think the different directions are due to some leaving and some arriving - also some will be circling around a little bit for the correct approach and they'll be at different levels (of course).

I grew up as a young child on Lake Michigan and loved the fog. It's magical and great for photos.

No fog around here, so for me it's magic. Especially in your beautiful pictures.They make me dream, thank you !
Have a nice week-end!

I love all the gold, brown and yellow colors of the second photo.

Jackie said...

Fog, sunrise, sunset...all three are a photographer's dream.
Your photos are beautiful.

Heisann Rune!

Tusen takk for mange gode ord om bildene mine. Setter stor pris på at du svinger innom :-)

Og du - tåkebilder er spennende! Det gir en helt egen dimensjon med litt mystikk ved seg...

Liker begge motivene dine - på hver sin måte. Fuglene som fyker forbi i det øverste liver opp, og jeg kjenner at jeg kunne tenkt meg å vært med i den båten for å dra garn :-)

Soloppgangsbildet ser litt eksotisk ut med den ørlille skalken av en sol under den opplyste, gylne tåkehimmelen og greinene i front. Flott komposisjon!

Riktig god helg! :-)

Lew said...

Wonderful shots! Fog is great in b&w or color.

John said...

If there were a vte, I would go for the oat shot, nice one. Fog gives an atmosphere.

Sylvia K said...

These are awesome, Rune!!! There's nothing quite like the fog and the moods that it can generate! I love both of these, but gold in the last one really grabbed me -- that plus your composition! Thanks for sharing the foggy beauty! Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!

Hey hey, gime fog anytime. It's the grey rainy days I can't cope with.
Thanks for your fine spirit in your comment on my blog. I'm cherishing all your words.
I'll get back on my feet.

Happy weekend and Ohhh sorry but these photo's are just lovely.
Hugs Dagmar

Ojjjj Rune som jeg likte ditt første stemningsbilde her!! lekkert i sort hvitt, og tåka er jo en velsignelse for oss som vandrer rundt med kamera, lekkert!!

Ha en superfin fotohelg.

Anneklem.

Birdman said...

Why do people put the camera away in rain and fog.? I'll never get it.

Gerry Snape said...

love that first photo...wonderful atmosphere...you are right fog is a photographer's friend.

HansHB said...

Et herlig innlegg!
Flotte bilder. Jeg er selv svak for "tåkebilder"!
Ha en fin kveld!

Your photos show us that fog works for us in both monochrome and color photographs, Beautiful shots. -- barbara

Rebecca Jerdee said...

Must be fun to make pictures in which the horizon line disappears...so other-worldly :)

Marie said...

Kan ikkje seie at eg likar skodde, men det kan gje stemningsfulle og trollske bilde og desse er ingen unntak.

Fantastisk flott! Likte spesielt det første, sjø eller vatn som ein del av bildet blir sjeldan feil :)

God helg :)

richies said...

Amazing photos, but we are accustomed to seeing them here.

Very nice foggy photos.

Valerie said...

I'm fascinated by fog and it's possibilities too. I like both the photos.

Erika said...

Nice shots! I like sunrise.
Wish you a good new week.

Both photos are excellent, but I think that top one has extraordinary power. The placement of the boat, its wake, the birds, and the fog almost create a full-blown story--magical but also a bit scary.

truels said...

Meget fine og stemningsfulde billeder, Rune. Ja tåge er godt foto-vejr :-)

Petra said...

That's true, fog can add certain mystery...

I like both shots but especially the birds in the first one, they somehow add excitement to it! :)

imac said...

Foggy days are your captivating wonders my friend.

Rizalenio said...

Wonderful dreamy photos. I find mysteries in these images. Like a masterpiece, can't stop staring at these photographs.

Irene said...

Soloppgang i tåke ... vakkert fanget, Rune. Ingen grunn til å holde seg inne med kameraet selv om det er tåke, det beviser du her!

God helg!

Emm in London said...

These photos are both exquisite. I find fog anything but boring. It is mysterious, alluring, moody and intriguing.

Bjarte Wergedahl said...

Herlige bilder begge to. Her kommer det an på sinnsstemningen hvilket som faller best i smak. Begge er utmerkete bilder. Fin ro i de øverste og lekre farger i det nederste. Supert.

E Squared and Mui said...

What's behind the fog bank? Is the captain of the boat thinking of dangers that might lurk behind the veil ... is he being careful?

Truly breathtaking photos

DomPayne said...

I have always liked foggy weather despite the depressing aura it creates for some people. Beautiful photos.

Darlene said...

Fog makes everything seem quite mysterious, don't you think? Your photos of the boat and the sunrise are both excellent. It's so neat that you caught the sun right between those two trees, or are they bushes?.....I can't really tell, but it does show your genius at what you do so well, picking your spot.

Fog is good to look at but I certainly hate to drive in it. We don't really have fog here in the desert, but when we go up north to visit our daughter, we often get fog. She lives near San Francisco. It can be very scary and dangerous too....we have had some pretty serious pile ups that we have fortunatley just missed, two or three, so hope you didn't have to drive in dense fog.

I haven't blogged for almost three weeks, but I'm back now. I have just been so darned busy. We had three sets of company in that time and even though I love company, it can really wear me down. I likely won't post much more often in the future, not because of being too busy, but there just isn't anything that interesting to post about. I use my blog mostly as a journal and it's not always that interesting to read someone else's journal. I'm glad you come by though and I always love your remarks. What a lucky thing I ran into your blog...........Thanks Rune.

Utrolig bra tåkebilder. Med tåken har du fanget roen og stillheten i naturen. Særlig det første bildet med de vakre bølgene i kjølvannet av båten skaper glede å se på.

Viola said...

Disse to bildene ga skikkelig inspirasjon!! =) Nydelige rett og slett! Det kan bli utrolige bra bilder når det er tåke, jeg liker så godt det lyset (eller mangel på lys) i dem. Magiske! :)

Fog produces an etheral quality to each location of which you have captured perfectly, RuneE.

Har bare en ting å si....nyyyydelig :0)

I love fog! As you say, it adds such great atmosphere. That's such a great black and white image, wonderful light on the water and I love those birds.
