Weekend Fog

Recommended Posts

A few from my weekend fishing trip. Fog was really thick on Sunday morning, thank goodness for GPS with mapping capability! These shots were just before it got real thick.

#1 50D, ISO 100, f4.5, 1/400s, manual exposure, 17-40 lens.

Thanks guys very kind of you to comment. I am wondering on that first shot if a more vertical shot might be better? Any thoughts?

Dan, I like the vertical one better than the horizontal one. Flows nicely with the direction of the dock and the tree hanging in from above.

The only thing I noticed Dan is that the vertical one is about 2 degrees off of level or so. Ever since I started seeing that in some of my older photos I have been working to perfect it, and I know you are a perfectionist. Nothing a quick tweek in PS can't handle though. Did you take your left shoe off for that pic? wink

It could be a little trickery with the image though.

Hey no problem Tom and you are correct about being a perfectionist. I think your eyes might be fooled somewhat though. I looked at that myself and the fog bank on the distant shore appears to be throwing things off. The end of the dock is level which I know is also level with the lake.

Of course shooting sports the first thing I check for are horizontals and verticals. I always find it more accurate to use verticals to make sure everything is straight. This one really has no verticals to check for square so I was stuck with a fog bank and dock.

Sometimes I will change a shot even though its level because your eye tells you something is not right. In this case if I rotate it to make the shore look level your eye will go right to that dock and that will look tilted. So I guess its a toss up and in this one I decided to stay with the dock and let the fog do its thing, though that may be the wrong thing.

Thanks to all for the comments.

I kinda figured the dock was the basis for level, and after looking at it again I can see what you are saying. I just wish I could get out and find light like that some day. Nothing short of amazing, no matter what way you look at it.

Again thanks for pointing it out Tom, I sure has heck don't get it right all that often so its easy to miss things. I think it raises some good points as well on different aspects of a photo and what works and doesn't work.

Feel free to point something out anytime Tom or others reading as well, I'm a big dude who can handle C&C. Can't think of a better way to improve!

All very nice. I think I like the horizontal version of the first one better. Might have looked cool if you could get all those elements in a panoramic.

Very nice and peaceful shots, I think I would favor the vertical

crop myself.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
