Photography Inspiration: Fog

Photography Inspiration: Fog

I've always been fascinated by fog, my hometown used to get foggy pretty often, especially in the summer. People always say, low fog means a hot day ahead. The visual effects created by a fog is striking, like suddenly this super low cloud takes over cities. San Francisco is pretty famous by its fog, it even has a name and Twitter account: Karl the fog (https://twitter.com/KarlTheFog). For this post I selected a few inspiring images of cities and other landscapes taken by Karl and his siblings. Fog is a collection of liquid water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth's surface. While fog is a type of stratus cloud, the term "fog" is typically distinguished from the more generic term "cloud" in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes). Fog is distinguished from mist only by its density, as expressed in the resulting decrease in visibility: Fog reduces visibility to less than 1 km (5/8 statute mile), whereas mist reduces visibility to no less than 1 km. - Wikipedia Fog at the Golden Gate #1 - San Francisco by Patrick Smith Fog City - San Francisco by David Yu Vertigo Fog Daniel Cheong Morning Fog - Marin Headlands Panorama View by David Yu Fog by KenTakesPictures Patchy Fog by Louis Vest Fog pour by Jesse Varner Fog in Vancouver by Mark Teasdale Fog strem by Pete Tsai Chicago in the Clouds by Pete Tsai Foggy Chicago by Pete Tsai Chicago in the Clouds by Pete Tsai Fog Bank by Charles Lamoureux

Misty Nature Photography

A couple of years ago we've featured an awesome set of urban misty scenes. Fog can add so much to the mood of a cool photograph! So this time I thought it would be nice to search for some awesome misty nature images. These are the fantastic pictures I've found, taken by some really talented people. A misty nature scene may be even more eerie than a urban scene, don't you think? So, if you got your own misty nature pieces, share it with us!

Eerie Urban Misty Night Photography

Misty nights in the city have that eerie, peaceful feel to it, but at the same time it's so fragile, as if it was just waiting for something to break the silence... ... like a monster, right at your face. Ok, just kidding... maybe I'm referring Stephen King too much, but these do remind me of The Mist, for obvious reasons. But these are indeed some amazing photographs taken by some very talented people who took their time to picture the night fog, which is pretty cool. You should really pay them a visit, 'cause I know it will be worth the visit. I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;) P.S.: If you got your own urban misty night pictures, share it with us by dropping a comment with it attached. ;) Mary Hilldore Alex Brown Matt Pringle Pooyan Tabatabaei Mark Tisdale marcus claesson marcus claesson marcus claesson Mikael Ulv Michael Spiller Mary Hilldore Fred Ben Morson Tarmo Toni_V Kaspar Bossers Kaspar Bossers
