that sounds very sad - as you wrote, you can't have a good mood with such a weather.
But your shot is realy pretty, I like to see the fog here - but only for 4 minutes - not for 4 days, haha!
Thanks and greetings to you from the cold - but sunny - Germany ;-)

This looks just like what we have had in our backyard for the past week also. Fog and gloom, except we have had the songbirds and squirrels about the firs and apple trees awaiting the snow we are going to have at the end of the week it appears.
Silence in the woods is sometimes a gift, it settles the soul...

Great mood. I like simple compsition and perfect homogenous background. Also nice looking thin crop.

Who said our climate was going to get warmer?? It's been cold, misty and very grey here too now for two weeks! But for those of us who like forests and wilderness we're stuck with cold and miserable winters! To me they're a real waste of time! Sorry, I'm rambling on - this is nevertheless a very beautiful foggy image with the big pine tree standing firmly on the ground in spite of the weather. - We must battle on!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Fog is not my favorite thing after being caught in it on the NJ Turnpike and having to walk, hand in hand, single file, to the next toll booth to be rescued. We were lucky - several people were killed that night. But I do like your picture - like snow, fog is nice in pictures. The Ponderosa is standing proud as if it is guarding the trees in the fog in the background. Your weather front has even reached us and we are down to 50 now and will be in the 30's tonight. No fog though - bright sunny skies.

Like Ulla I think fog is depressive. There are times when fog can create a sense of mystery like in this shot Bob: it makes this Ponderosa stand out from the others behind and one wonders why this tree is all on its own. This shot is probably the best one can achieve in fog. Well it looks like I can say its not much better here: dark and drizzly and you can't even take a shot like this.
Thanks and greetings from a cold and dark grey Scania,

Sometimes fog can also be interesting and I would say that on this picture it brings so much atmosphere and a touch of mystery which I appreciate very much.
The horizontal framing, despite the big Pine,is very pleasant and balances the whole picture.
Very well seen, Bob.
Have a nice day

this sure is a moody and sullen looking photo but it does have great merit in that it shows well the conditions of the here and now.I too find after some time, dull and gray days get to be a drag as probably most people do.This photo isn't a drag however as it conveys quiet with a touch of mystery as all foggy photos do.The colour palette is sparse and is typical of winter time and overall the capture shows well what a dull day looks like.This photo may make some want to beg off as you say in your note but I find it to be a rather enjoyable photo.

Slowly trying to catch up on a lot of mist postings (no pun intended) but you've captured a great mood here, it really has the thick and gloomy look and feel to it, but ever the optimist I'm sure that ray of sunshine will break though.
Nicely captured all the best, Cheers Rick :)

There doesn't seem to be a shortage of fog in the northwest this season. We've had it for days too and boy is it cold... I'd rather have snow. This is bone chilling. Your picture captures the feeling well.

Fog can be a bit of a bummer day after day.
We're looking at moving to a little place called Blackball (on a wee plateau between the mountains) and it gets a fair bit of fog there.No so bad I guess when there are hills and interesting features around,but still a bit of a drag sometimes.
Nice shot of this Pondarosa et al.

Not much you can do in fog without some bright light and a break here and there, but you still managed to get something worth sharing anyway with a strong compositon and some nice tonal qualities.
Nicely done Bob.

I am a fan of tree shots,I hope to some day take more of them.
The added fog into this scene adds a lovely ambiance.
Lovely sombre tones.
I can relate to this scene very well.

Fog really is dismal!
It's like a big shroud of depressingness!
I hope it clears soon!
Fog does create cool photos though :-)
Very good composition.
Well done Bob,

You are soooo very lucky Bob, that you have the fog to put up with. You should come over to help us "dig" out of this white powder!!!
Have fun my friend,
