Green Fog Morning

My neighbor’s yard on a foggy morning two days ago. I like the fence gate with the dogs on it. Editing was adding a lot of contrast and vignetting. The weather in central Florida has been dreary but warm for December, although I do not attribute that to global warming but rather normal climactic fluctuations.

See also: A Morning of Fog, which I took near the same location.

Foggy Country

The foggy country! This is across the field on LPGA blvd. when driving toward the intersection with U.S. 17-92 in Daytona Beach, Florida, USA.

There is a Bud Light beer truck off in the distance. You can make out the letters on the high-res version.

I thought of leaving this in color but the drab colors weren’t adding much to the photo… it looks much better in black and white. I also enhanced the fog (dodge tool in Photoshop) and added some contrast.

I took this from our van while my father was driving. My Twitter readers may know that I just started driving this week; I’m just on parking lots and back-roads now until I get a feel for driving. My learner’s license lasts until my 27th birthday in 2018. :shocked:

I haven’t been posting photos recently, but I just scheduled 12 for the next 12 days so keep coming back to visit!

In the Fog — foggy traffic lights in black and white

This is what it feels like to live in the fog all the time. Took this of some green traffic lights at night. How did I get the fog? I blew on the lens, and the condensation made the photo turn out like this, no fog required.

I added a ton of contrast, burned in the sides, and switched to black and white. The added contrast amplified the noise considerably, so this is a noisy image. It works because of the lack of color, though.
