Foggy Morning in Toronto

I shot this at Rosetta Maclean Park earlier today. Man was it foggy. The fog usually never sticks around long enough for me to get my poop in a group and shoot it. Today was a treat. I just wish I’d had more time to travel around and shoot other stuff. The fence line divides the park from the Scarborough Bluffs. It’s like a 100+ foot drop to Lake Ontario on the other side of that fence. My thinking when it comes to shooting fog is that since whatever you’re shooting is going to be shrouded in fog, it’s probably not a bad idea to keep things simply. A leading line and one or three elements, that’s it. Let the fog stand out in the shot. Also look for a scene that leaves a lot to the imagination. I like photos that give me a lonely feeling, that feel disconnected from the real world. That’s sort of what I was trying for here. I actually fully expected this to end up being black & white, but it seemed to like being in colour. Hope you like it.

    I do like it! It’s beautiful.. I love fog ! The Scots call fog a “harr” . So I grew up calling it that…more of a joke really, puts a smile on my dad’s face when we say it.
