After getting the kids off to school I took a drive to the beach. I have been waiting for a day like this to get out and shoot. I am sure glad it waited for me to feel better from being sick.

I have not shot in fog like this before so am still learning. If any photo friends know a great way to shoot in fog let me know. My photos are showing tons of noise. They still look cool....but not sure how well they would print big.

Here are a few of my favorites.

This last one is my favorite!

Love 'em! I can't decide on my favorite... hm... But I tell you, your pictures can make anyone want to move to wherever you're living.

Thanks :-)I am really starting to love living here.

You sure are capturing some wonderful pictures there... You know, I think I could love living just about anywhere. If you go out and experience what you can, there's surely something to love about every place.

I love the 5th one. I'm a sucker for big gnarly trees, and I like the tree in the foreground is silhouetted, while those in the background are misty.

The trees here are so very cool! I need to get out and shoot more of them.

They are beautiful as they are, can't give you any advice in the improving area. Really, they are great!

My favorite is the 4th one down in the woods, just beautiful!

Now that the trees are all frosted with snow I need to go take some photos myself before it warms up again!

Thank you :-) It has been nice to do winter photos with out the snow this year.

All I can think of as advice is to use a lower ISO (200 or 400) and a tripod (or a nice fast IS/VR lens).

My shutter speed was pretty fast. I don't think that was the problem. It is just hard to tell what exactly my exposure should be with photos like this. The histogram was no help at all. Next time I will just bracket my photos more.

Depending on your camera, a high ISO always introduces more noise and fog/other low-light usually causes a higher ISO to be selected if you have the camera on Auto-ISO.

I was shooting at 100 ISO that is why I am confused with all the noise. I always shoot on Manual and have a good grasp with all my settings. I think also I will try film with shots like this. I think I will get a better turn out.

Goodness! I'd be confused as well! Maybe the water droplets in the fog act as prisms and confuse the CCD? Yeah - film might be a better idea. They are still great shots, though...
