Tree in the mist

We've had a severe fog warning for parts of Franklin County this morning. I didn't get out to do a photo shoot this particular morning, but this photo is from last Saturday.

Fog photos are really hard to do. If you add any contrast, you lose the effect of the fog, but if you don't do something in the post process, the image is flat and uninteresting. For this photo, I did a filter in Nik Software Color Efex Pro 4 that enabled me to get some detail extracted without losing the soft effect of the fog and blue-hour lighting from just before sunrise.

I like the subtle, pastel tones. The square format really works well for this.
