Fogged in

New Year’s Eve was all fog until after sunset, when rain picked up and cleared out the inversion. While flat light of solid overcast rarely makes for good photography, fog changes up available compositions because in a lot of cases, distracting elements for some compositions get hidden.

Fog really enhances some foreground vs. background separation here.

Between bare trees and fog, it’s very easy to visualize in monochrome. The dynamic range isn’t going to be full deep shadow against just short of peaking highlights. Still, I really dig the heck out of it.

This image doesn’t work nearly so well without fog.

It was not a great day for driving, but it was very nice for walking around and photographing.
