Images in Fog – Bass Lake

Fog creates a mystic environment for photographers. While the clarity is somewhat blurred, it adds a bit of mystery to the images. Normally a clear lake on a sunny day, Bass Lake in North Carolina is shrouded in fog creating an eerie image.

Reflections – in Landscape

The wonderful thing about using reflections when taking photos is that they can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to something richer or abstract or otherwise more artistic. Here is a reflection of the landscape at sunset in a small body of water.

Clouds – Striking Formations

Cloudscape photography is photography of clouds or sky. The sky is the single most abstract and dynamic canvas that a photographer has at his disposal. It is an endless source of inspiration that can change a boring photo into one of tremendous interest. Clouds can really either dominate an image or they can enhance the background.

Will be posting this week images of clouds as the dominant feature. Here is one with striking cloud formations in the blue sky.

What makes a striking photo? Often, it’s merely ordinary things composed in an ordinary manner. That’s because they always tend to have a single theme or idea, and because clutter is kept to a minimum. However, in this image, we are looking at the elements of design (line, shape, form, texture, pattern, and color) that turns a simple subject into an interesting photo.
