Changing Seasons #10

Fog Shrouds Larch and Pines
Frenchtown, Montana

This is one of my favorite images from a morning of shooting in clearing fog along the nearby river. There is a sense of movement in the fog as it drifts across the trees. And the yellow and green pines add color contrast. 

A telephoto lens allowed me to isolate a portion of the hillside trees and cloud. Since everything was the same distance from the camera, I selected a middle aperture of f/11 and adjusted the shutter speed to 1/40 second at ISO 100 for clear, sharp results. By attaching the camera to a tripod and using the self-timer, I prevented any camera shake.
