Foggy and Frosty


Rising in the east and obscured behind thick fog, the winter sun lights an old cottonwood tree covered in delicate hoar frost. Once the fog lifted it only took a couple of hours of sunlight to melt the frost away. Temporal, fractal art at is finest. Grand Teton National Park, WY.

    1. HI, I did and have a version on the computer but I preferred the color version as it just felt better to look at with just a hint of color that was in the atmosphere that day. Perhaps tomorrow I will find the monochrome version more appealing, just one of those things.

    1. Thanks, it was a rare morning for me to see so much fog and the hoar frost on the trees since we rarely have that combination of fog and humidity to produce the frost at home. Hope your day is going well.

  1. I am deeply touched by this stunning tree standing in the middle of the universe and enjoying itself being the only one, dancing in the fog. So beautiful! Winter is happy, after all. You have bright eyes to see this and capture this dear moment! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Heather, the tree as well as the whole landscape was beautiful even in the cold of mid-winter. The universe in a tree as well a a tree standing in the universe. Have a wonderful day.

  2. What a serene wonderful photo! What a great thing that you took the time to admire this temporary artwork!

    Thank you for sharing! I love the exposure and composition!

    Kind regards, Tieme

    1. Thanks Tieme, that foggy yet bright light is always a bit tricky but this time I got it right. Temporal art is the best and when provided by nature even better. Have a wonderful day.

          1. Thank you very much! It is πŸ™‚ Getting ready for another week at work. Hope your weekend is great and your week will be too!


    1. Thanks and it is wonderful when the conditions out there create such beautiful and temporal landscapes. I have done the same thing at yellowstone as those trees covered by rime ice next to the geysers are so unique. Hope your day is going well.

    1. Thanks Karl, just one of those magical day when we happened to be out and about at the right time and place. Hope you are having a great day and thanks for taking the time to leave a bit of feedback as well. Much appreciated.

    1. Thanks and thanks for taking time to leave some feedback as we really appreciate it. BW photography is fun and I am glad you enjoyed a few of our images. The seeing of light and dark from and space is what I enjoy about it.

    1. Thanks, not as bleak as it seems since we spotted a moose flying in the grass just a few hundred years down the road. Foggy but full of life as well. Thanks for the feedback as it is appreciated and hope your day is gong well.

    1. Hi and thanks for stopping by here as well. That photo was shot with a regular old DSLR probably a Nikon D700 only a UV filter. It was a very foggy morning and a cold fog to boot. Hope your day is treating you well and thanks again for taking the time to leave us a little feedback. We really appreciate it.

feedback welcome
