Foggy Mornings Bring Sunny Afternoons

I rarely go black and white on my photos. But this one screamed for the desaturation. Driving to work yesterday the fog was so thick. I pass this field every day and always thought, "on the next foggy day, I am stopping". Luckily, I actually had my camera with me and was able to get the tree line fading away. By afternoon, the fog had burned off and it was actually sunny in areas for the first time in what seems like weeks. Today is also a blue sky day! Lucky us :)

On a side note, tomorrow is the 114th Civil War between my beloved Oregon State Beavers and the #2 BCS ranked team in the nation, the Oregon Ducks. GO BEAVERS!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Wow, very atmospheric! Awesome picture.

  2. Now I do think you were here in the valley this morning taking photos... they have lots of similarity. ;)

    Please, please let it be a good game, I say. Do you think our Beavs can whoop em? We sure hope so!

  3. It's that time of year for the fog. This one turned out perfectly!

  4. This just proves one shouldn't get all moody over a bit of fog. It can be beautiful and and when it is gone, it isn't even missed.

  5. Hi
    mi piace molto questa foto immersa nella nebbia...
    Buona giornata :)

  6. You're right, it's definitely better in b&w. Tomorrow is the Apple Cup, UW and WSU. Go Huskies! Oh, and i'm a Ducks fan so..... ;p

  7. What a beautiful image. Very peaceful looking.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
