Foggy Samford Valley

Not a huge amount of fog about on Wednesday morning, but I thought I'd stop to shoot it anyway.

    Yep, fog is always an interesting challenge.
    Thanks Tim :)

    nice pano...
  • Grauniad2 said:
    Thanks David. That partly explains something I always wondered about. Now, how do I apply that setting on my own photos?
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Mitch :)
    In your flickr account settings, under the Privacy and Permissions section, the first option "Who can download your stuff" is the one you want.

    Love the remains of fog David, it show what's around it.
    Excellent pano crop.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Adam - 'tis three shots stitched together.
  • Tristen Murray said:
    Great shot David.
    Nice work to get an interesting shot like this, even though there wasn't much fog about.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Tristen. Fog's a tricky thing to shoot - too much and everything disappears, not enough and it's not very interesting..

    love this David -
    your photos are so sharp & have such clarity (think thats what I mean lol) Is it because of the camera / lens / or your skill? (or maybe all 3? )
    (I acknowledge you have skill, so please don't take that the wrong way)
  • David de Groot said:
    I'm going for all three Kath :)
  • SkattyKat said:
    ahh so I need to save harder as well as practice harder & longer :-)
    Thanks David, your work is very inspiring.
  • David de Groot said:
    Well your current kit is quite capable - just check out my earlier shots with the 400D (a consumer level body) for comparison.
  • SkattyKat said:
    Yeah I know David, so I guess the "practice" is the main part of it (for me)
    Always striving to do better.
    I accidentally came across your photo stream earlier this year, and faved your page, & I guess it all actually started there...
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, practice practice, read, ask questions, practice ;-)
