“One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.” – Minor White

It was foggy in the Valley this morning and it stretched up into the adjoining hills. I know that fog can add simplicity and interest to an image – something I have been trying to incorporate in my images with moderate success.  Had hope this morning that the fog would add to the images I came home with.

The first stop was at a local county park along the Mckenzie River.  I set up underneath the I-5 bridge and started looking for simple abstracts.  Found this one on a bridge piling.  It has such varied color and pattern and I think age helps to set it off.

Moving upriver I came across this lone mature tree emerging from the fog in a wide open field.  One of those classic images that a photographer is lucky enough to come across from time to time.  Probably could come up with a good story that matches my life for this one but it seems pretty obvious.

Comments are more than welcome.
