These images are from a trip to Blackwater NWR in November of 2009. On this day we woke up early to drive 4.5 hours to get to the Blackwater NWR when it opened. But as we got close to being there we found ourselves in very dense fog. Luckily there was not much traffic that early and got to the Refuge without difficulty. Once we got there the fog was even worse. But as it got a little lighter we were able to start photographing in the fog. It actually was fun and different to photograph the landscapes in the fog. The landscapes were all shot with a 24-105mm @ varying focal lengths. The featured Eagle image was taken with a 400mm DO lens with a 1.4x Teleconverter on a Canon 1DmkIII.
Astonishing capture, Reed. Love the impressions the mist is creating.
Thanks Greta! It was fun to photograph in the fog! Plus it was not crowded!
The last picture is a nice and new grip, unexpected.
Thanks Hans! I was trying to show a different way to show the Wildlife Drive with the fog! It is the beginning of Wildlife Drive after the entrance kiosk. People who go there would recognize it as the beginning of the Wildlife Drive!
Familiar scenes take on a different perspective in the fog. Very nice series.
Thanks Belinda! Yes, it looks very different in the fog! Plus it was fun to photograph in the fog! Gave everything a little different look!
Wow, you may have been disappointed at first, but you kicked into gear and made some awesome photos!
Thanks Eliza! It was a lot of fun to photograph in the fog!
These are awesome, Reed! Fog at Blackwater is a superb setting!!
Thanks so much Donna! It was a fun day at Blackwater! Plus not many other cars & people around! Sort of had the Refuge to ourselves!
Lots of nie atmosphere there, Reed.
Thanks Steve! It was fun to photograph in the fog! It gave familiar landscapes a different look!
