The Fog!

For quite a long time i’ve been wanting to try and photograph a particular tree in the fields where i walk the dog. I’ve photographed parts of it against the sky in a minimalistic way, but always thought it’d be good in the fog as you lose all the distracting background.

In the past there’s always been something to do when it’s been foggy, work being one of the main problems, so i’d never really caught it in the way i kept envisaging it, until last week!

We had a wonderfully foggy day, so i grabbed a camera bag, put the dog on a lead, and headed to the fields.
This is pretty much how i’d been seeing this photo with the tree isolated in the fog, and no distractions……

Foggy Day.....


As i carried on walking around i looked at this old dead tree. I remember it from when i was a kid and it still had some growth on it, but now there seems less and less of it as the years go by.
I couldn’t help thinking that isolated in the fog, it looked like it was off for a walk down the hill. In that dull foggy bleakness there was almost a life to it. Was it on some unknown mission? Or just off for a  quiet walk in the fog when it thought no one could see? Or was it just my imagination running away?

Just walking down the hill....




About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
