Fog can add a wonderful aspect to nature photographs. Its presence can play a role in the mood of the image, adding a touch of mystery or adventure to the work. Even scenes that have been photographed many times before can become more dynamic and interesting when imaged on a foggy day. If you’re looking to add a bit of something special to your photographs, be on the lookout for a nice, foggy morning.
This moody image was taken a few weeks ago at Emerald Isle Woods park, a community park in Emerald Isle North Carolina. I had visited the park that morning with the hope of photographing a bird or some wildlife, but simply could not resist making an image of this lovely scene.
The following color photograph was taken at the New Bern Civil War Battlefield Park. Taken near the trailhead, the morning fogs adds a touch of mystery to the hike ahead.
Of course the power of fog to add interest to a photograph isn’t limited to coastal areas. In the next black and white photo is a morning view taken in Cades Cove in the Tennessee side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.a few years ago.
If you’re looking to increase the drama and interest in your photographs, fog might be just the thing. And for folks looking to hang an interesting piece of fine art photography, don’t hesitate to give foggy scenes some consideration.
