Meandering in mist

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 26 April 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Taken a few weeks ago as my "walk and shoot" companion makes his way through the fog enveloping Cleadon Hills in South Shields, we quite enjoyed these Sunday morning sessions and his knowledge of wildlife is quite comprehensive. I just wish I was faster with the lens changing to capture some the birds and animals that he spots!

trouble with doing both landscape n nature is the changing of lens. The half obscured background gives an element of mystery. Good shot

This seems like a different shot for you but it is one of my favorites. Great sight line and your companion really makes it.

Great area for a walk, but I'd much prefer it once green. Your dedication to go out in the cold is commendable, and you managed a beautiful shot.

With this shot it draws you in to see all the detail... the toning is perfect gives it a feel like it could be from generations back... Fantastic work!! 5 stars:)

Very nicely taken, the fog really adds to the shot and the coloring is very nicely done!

26 Apr 2010 2:01pm

@Julie: Ah yes the colour Julie is a dark sepia that I used from Nik Silver Efex on a separate layer with the opacity turned down a little.

A very dreamy and moody capture that you have shared with us. I also like the "old time" feel the photo provides being processed in B&W.

Cool shot...and here's a solution for ya......carry 2 camera's, then you always have 2 lenses ready!!! (I can say that now, since I have the rebel xt as a backup to my 40d)...

John from New York, United States

Very nice hot Curly, I love the treatment it works really well with the foggy day. Although, I think it would be a stronger shot if the path and the man were more removed from the center.

Very,very beautiful! the landscape looks fantastic in this tones.

Let me know if you solve the "lens changing" problem, because I have the same one! By rule, I always have the wrong one.
