Play Misty For Me

I captured this image last fall when I was out photographing on Ward Island. It was a fog filled afternoon and evening and I never got the sunset that I was after. This is the path leading to the water with a view of the Toronto skyline.

After processing in LR5 I ran the image through OnOne Perfect Effects and added the Glow preset.

The View from Nepenthe

In 1947 Lolly and Bill Fassett bought a log cabin in Big Sur, California with the dream of building a restaurant where people from up and down the coast could come and eat and drink under the sun and stars and marvel at the spectacular views of the Big Sur coastline. The name of the restaurant is Nepenthe and today it’s still owned and operated by Lolly & Bill’s children and grandchildren. The views of Big Sur are indeed spectacular but unfortunately on the day that I was there it was shrouded in fog. I certainly wasn’t going to get the image I was dreaming off (looks like I’ll have to make another trip out to California 🙂 ) but decided to try to see what I could do with the fog and my 10 Stop ND filter.

Zuma Beach

It’s Friday…yahoo…and with the weather getting chilly in my neck of the woods (and maybe yours) I thought I’d kick off the weekend with some warmer thoughts. Have a great one everybody!

Enchanted

While at the workshop at the Rockwood Autoyard this past weekend, I broke off from the group to go do a little exploring on my own and I came upon this scene. Remember in my last post I said that there was a foggy mist that enveloped the area? See what I mean.

After some minor adjustments in Photoshop I ran the image through Topaz Clarity to give it a bit more definition and then Perfect B&W to desaturate and give it a bit of a mysterious feel.

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.
