Fog, changing light - magic

November 12, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Today as I drove home from work the light was starting to fade and as I got closer to Cape Ann I saw that the fog that was present this morning was still around and with the fading light was creating some magical moments that I really needed to capture. The fog was moving in and out along the shore and I initially pulled out the Sony Nex-7 with the Leica 90mm Tele-Elmarit which at 135mm was a little short but gave me a larger view that included the sky above the fog which was very interesting. I envisioned a B&W shot that included the clouds above the scene with the dory on it's mooring. I converted it in Silver Efex Pro and got the result I was looking for. The print will have to be large to get the feeling I want. 

 

The light started to get lower as the sun went down, and the sky started to turn orange above the river and fog. The fog started to get a little heavier and started to enshroud the coastline so I switched over to my Canon 5D Mk3 and the 70-200 L to get in tighter to the dory. In Lightroom I adjusted things slightly but overall this is the scene I envisioned as I was standing there.

 

I love both these images and they are so different. With just a little time in between them and a longer lens created something totally different but magical each in their own way. I look at these images as some of my most important to date. Seeing the same scene in two totally different ways is a departure for me and I hope that my vision will keep improving. I also took some wider shots with the Leica M9 and Leica 35mm Summicron which I worked on this morning. As promised, here are two wide angle shots.

 

Here is the color version which I don't like as much but your opinion may be different.

 

These images may work for you or may not please let me know what you think.
