Forest Mist

I’d like to thank everyone for the responses to Monday’s post, asking for your opinion on either the colour or black & white version of “Swirls.”  So what did everyone think?

66% liked the colour version

22% liked the B&W version

9% liked both.

It looks like the color version was a favorite. Thank you again for taking the time to visit and providing your feedback.

On to today’s images. The start of our Tobermory weekend was, how shall I put it…soggy. We had to delay our start on the first morning because of the pouring rain. When we did finally head out, close to an hour behind schedule, the rain had subsided. It actually subsided up until we parked the cars and were ready to start hiking. That’s when the sky opened up again. Our workshop leader and photographer, Ethan Meleg, quickly put plan B into action…we would hike to a wooded area where we could at least get some shelter from the rain. This provided another photographic opportunity.

There was this wonderful mist in the air and the the rain and dampness made the colors of the forest pop.

  1. Wonderful, Edith! The colors are so vibrant, and the forest seems to be thriving pretty well from the rain.

    The mist and the enhanced vibrancy from the wet moss make for some enchanting shots.

    • Thanks Phil. The rain and mist really makes the colors and textures in the forest pop. It just proves that you shouldn’t turn around and go home when the weather isn’t what you hoped for.

  14. That looks like really ancient woodland with all that moss. The thin veil of mist adds something extra to all of these shots. Good place for a shoot I would agree, Edith

  15. Nicely done, very atmospheric. I used to go shooting in the fog around San Francisco and love the effect it had on the landscape.

  17. Dreamy and ethereal! I LOVE it! I think the 2nd image really exudes the concept of natural tension… what lies beyond the veil of mist? 🙂 Great work, Edith!
