A few images taken during 2020 lockdown.

Conditions were excellent for some eerie, ghost-like fog.

I found shooting images in the fog a challenge as the light and atmospheric conditions were constantly changing.

The conditions begged for B+W, and I didn't argue.

C&C always welcomed and appreciated.

    Woooooow. What a great set!!!

    My favorites are 1, 4 and 5. I don't care much about the framing on 1, on 4 the tilted angle drives me crazy, but it is a wonderful pic.

    Great work.

    Excellent work, Al. Shooting in fog certainly does require a careful approach and awareness. Shooting these in B&W was, IMO, the wise choice. Color, in some cases, can be a detraction. I love all of this set. One small nit.....in #3, I would have made sure that the right side of the signal was included in its entirety. Taz is right about that #5....dynamic, with perfect composition. Thanks for sharing these.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    A great set! I love shooting in the fog. the atmosphere creates a bit of mystery. I have been wanting to shoot, or convert more B&W but I'm thinking I need more software than Lightroom to achieve my goals. These are inspiring!

    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!
