This was a first for me–shooting in dense fog. I learned a lot in a recent Meet Up shoot to Point Reyes National Seashore on the coast. It was my first time and I truly wasn’t prepared for the totally socked in adventure I was about to have.

At first I thought, “What moody images this will make.” I had no idea that the fog would make focusing difficult! Auto focus had its problems, so I tried to focus manually. Even that was hard.

In addition, I wasn’t well during the week and only did part of the trails, meaning I didn’t reach the beach where it wasn’t so foggy. I basically concentrated on what I could do rather on what I couldn’t.

Today, I’m posting some images so you’ll get an idea of the fog. It was an amazing first for me.

  1. Sounds like you need a winter trip down the Delta. Kind of like going to Yellowstone in the snow! You took some wonderful shots so I think you learned well as a newbie! Being a fan of architecture I mostly favored the photographs of the houses, barns and the fence. Kudos.

    1. Thanks. I’ve been to the Delta area, but in Fall, Winter and Spring. It’s hot now, but maybe foggy. I liked the houses and barns too. They were fun to shoot.

  2. Absolutely love your in-flight photo of the turkey vulture. We have one that likes to sit along the roofline of our neighbor’s house. I sat and quietly watched him for about ten minutes recently – but of course, as I quietly tiptoed away for my camera, he was gone!

    1. Thank you Patricia. That’s the way it is with birds of any size. I have found a few who were used to humans and just posed for the longest time. When they are looking for something to eat, they get so absorbed that they don’t notice us. I enjoyed visiting your blog and seeing your art. Your work is so detailed.
