Absolutely ridiculously thick fog yesterday morning as I ventured out on my morning photo walk. At times visibility was less than 100 feet and while the sun was rising, the fog rendered everything nearly colorless. It definitely made for some moody scenes and a conversion of this image to black and white creates a cool, mystical scene. I loved the silhouetted trees and fishing platform.
The weather in the Denver area over the holiday weekend was a bit touch and go. Friday in particular was a challenge when it comes to photography.
A persistent fog that at times was ridiculously thick made it tough to get quality captures. It did however make for some cool scenes.
Frost had coated all the trees overnight and lingering snow from the snowstorm three days prior left everything quite white. Throw in fog creating a seemingly endless road in the distance and this, to me, is a pretty cool capture – figuratively and literally. 😉
A bit chilly with temps below freezing so I was anxious for that sun to come up! While I waited, I took in a pretty scene at a local pond in Adams County, Colorado.
Solitary reflections in black and white. Jumping back to almost exactly one year ago today. Thick fog had settled in on the St Vrain River in northern Colorado and spotting wildlife became pretty much impossible. It did however create some very cool scenes like this one, taken in St. Vrain State Park.
Taken a couple of weeks ago at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. You’ve likely seen me pictures I have posted of this same spot in the past. It is really quite picturesque with those trees looming large over the road. On this day, we had some early morning fog, something we don’t really see very often here in Colorado with as dry as it normally is. This however came on a day following a good bit of rain helping to give rise to the fog.
Taken last Friday, thick fog settled in along the St Vrain Creek and adjacent ponds and lakes. It made for some pretty cool scenes although it caught me off guard as just to the west where I started my photo tour on that day it was perfectly clear.
I converted this photo to black and white although given the filtered light and fog, it almost wasn’t necessary as even with the naked eye the scene was very monochromatic. Taken at St. Vrain State Park, Colorado.
A crazy cool scene this morning. Blue skies started things off and then this thick fog rolled in limiting visibility to 30 feet at times. It made for some pretty cool scenes to say the least. Here, it is thick enough that the sun looked like a pale circle on the horizon. Taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
A very interesting – and pretty – morning of ??weather? here in northeastern ??Colorado?. Temperatures were in the single digits and a hoar frost had covered everything in white. Also thrown in the mix was dense ??fog?, something we don’t get very often.
All of it came together for some nice pictures including this one on a dirt road. The fog had settled into a low lying area that the South Platte River meanders through and as it did, it seemed to swallow up everything going through it.
