I’ve been enjoying catching up and seeing everyone’s posts though I don’t have as much time to comment as often as I would like at the moment 🙂
This small dragonfly is one of the treasure trove of summer insects I found in the fog at sunrise the other week. The delicate wings reminded me of stained glass by the way it was backlit in the swirling fog.
It is now officially winter down here in Oz and this last week was cold, dark and foggy (maximums of 6 C which for us is cold!). I like the fog and the silhouettes it creates – these are evergreen Eucalyptus trees. This is my submission for MM 2-14 hosted by the ever hard working Leanne Cole on Wednesdays – do have a look for a wonderful variety of monochrome images.
I am flat out with work at the moment and so this is the first time I have properly logged into WordPress for what seems an age (well 5 days!!), and is likely to be this way for another week or so. In turn, I am snatching photo opportunities when I can. This image was taken last Thursday morning just after sunrise with the fog so thick you could look at the shape of the sun 🙂
This image sums up the last few weeks of weather for me – foggy, damp and cold. I took this on my way home from work last week with only about an hour left of any daylight and the fog getting thicker by the minute, manually focused as the camera struggled. There were trees that I had never noticed before, all in beautiful silhouette because of the fog 🙂
The day before yesterday saw a really heavy fog at sunrise (we didn’t actually see a sunrise!). I knew that the spider webs would be beautiful and wasn’t disappointed, but from a photography point of view (excuse the pun), as the light slowly got better so the wind picked up. This shot isn’t as sharp as I would like (also on an old DSLR) but still an interesting web full of beads of moisture. The reflections are dormant vines and the trellis system.
Yesterday was a very cold spring morning. The temperature of the dam water would have been considerably higher than the air temperature so it was almost like a steaming bath. The result was the rising sun being filtered through a haze – brings a whole new meaning to ND filter…
