Walk in the fog #5

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 5 April 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Found this next to the old pilot jetty on the River Tyne at South Shields, though the fog was thick and heavy that morning it provided some very different views and I'm glad that I got out.

The very best in this serie. I like that it´s ending with the fog, it´s a bit mysterius.

Great moody mono and, judging by the exif, steady hands too!

@digitalCG: Well, we should thank modern technology for that, one thing I like about the Pentax is that the image stabiliser is in the body so it works with any lens.

It could be a scene from an old B&W murder film. Did you have any problems with moisture on the lens..?

I really like this composition with the pilings running from the corner of the image out into the scene. Black-and-white processing is quite fine.

I think it is interesting that even with the thick fog, there is still reflection in the water. The fog creates such a mood!
