Was that last photo taken from a balcony? What a splendid view!

That was taken from my roof.

I love the foggy mornings here. One of these days I'm going to take the boat out in the middle of all that fog. See what I can find to take pictures of in the fog....

I sat in my car in the neighborhood across from ours tonight and tried to get photos of fog blanketing a house and the road. It was really cool looking under the light of the streetlamp. I came up empty handed which really sucked. I took 20 photos and not one of them turned out.

Been there, done that one foggy night here. Next time I'll take a tripod, the shutter remote and a lot more patience than I normally have and maybe I can get one to turn out. Don't give up....in fact if maybe you have a little bit of light in the morning, before the sun actually rises, maybe you could get a shot or two then with enough light to see, but the darkness still hanging on...

I have a tripod now. I tried. It was too dark to try to mess with settings. You can't see anything in that lousy menu they give you. Cameras are too small. I can try again tomorrow morning if I take off 15 minutes later they might be some light.

I don't know if it will work but for me it's always worth the try. I've gotten some of my best surprise shots when I least expect it.

My problem was I needed more light than the streetlight but it was the light from the streetlight that created the scene I was trying to get. More light and it would have been spoiled. It reminded me of a downy layer of cotton spread out in a layer 10' off the ground. It hovered. I gave it the old college try.
