Foggy Autumn Morning Along A NJ Creek

On December 2nd, 2015 it was very foggy, and chilly with a just the right touch of humidity in the air. The conditions were perfect, so much in fact that it stayed this way for a long time. Best of all, it was my husband’s 44th birthday so we got to spend some time together that morning after dropping our child off at school.

I had my Canon Mark 5D III and my Canon EF 20mm F2.8 and while shooting I saw something out on the water. So I told David to go back to the house, and grab my Canon 70-200mm F2.8 non IS L lens and my Manfrotto Monopod. We only live just up the hill, and I was worried about the fog burning off, but it really didn’t. It was difficult to decide if I wanted these to be in colour or in black and white. I love editing certain images like I did in a traditional black and white fiber based darkroom. It was silent except for that awful traffic sound in the distance. I miss the days when 295 wasn’t there,  even though it is necessary…..

I wanted to capture the above image because to me it was just so perfect and still, with the webs and dew.

That’s him, wearing the “Ugly Nightmare Before Christmas Sweater” that was his birthday gift from his daughter and I.
