Foggy Photos

The fog has us in its grip. Airports have closed. Motorways are slow. No proper daylight all day, only cold, thick fog.

So I thought this morning, what an opportunity to practise some black and white photography (and some colour)! Said and done, winter jacket and gloves on.

I just wandered around in the woods, the fields and also paid a visit to our military cemetery (Rheindahlen). I think the thick fog gives these pictures another dimension, the grave stones look positively ghostly.

Janey - Thank you. There is definitely something mysterious and beautiful about it.

Less is more!! simple composure, almost monochrome, but photos that engage - a mood, mystery, darkness, thought - essays in a single frame

Chris - A humble thank you. A very flattering comment indeed. Thanks again.

Wow - so haunting and lovely. That last shot is gorgeous, but sad too.

very eerie ... can almost feel the cold

Limningedge - Yeah, just like in an old ghost film, but it is (ten days later) colder now. We've had our first frost and a sprinkling of snow. More to come no doubt.

The gravestones photo has that something extra one strives for.

Symmetry is good, and a little eerie.
