I’m an amateur photographer, and I may not have time to take photography classes, but I’m a firm believer in “practice makes perfect”. That’s the beauty of digital photography because this past weekend while at my cousin’s resort, I was able to pick a scene that appealed to me and sit in one spot and just snap shot after shot, experimenting with portrait and landscape and different perspectives to see how I could truly capture the wonders of nature around me.
On the second morning, we awoke early to a lake shrouded in fog, so I quickly grabbed my camera and ran outside. The fog was very thick at first, and my photos were dark, blue tinged, and grainy looking, but as the fog began to lift a magical world emerged with mist dancing across the surface of the water. I worked my camera overtime that morning, and it was really difficult to pick just a few photos to share with you, but I finally decided on these as my favourites. I have shot these same scenes now in fog, rain, clouds, and sunshine, but I would have to say that these misty conditions were the most rewarding to me.
