      Masterful how you were able to get enough detail in of the trees and still show the soupy thickness of the fog. I have some shots of fog that all I can see is the white cloud and nothing else. I like the spot you chose here, these trees are rebels :-) Rather than a forest of straight sticks these guys are all over the place leaning in different directions showing their spunk. No fog is going to get them down! Sweet that you can see a cast of green on the trees.

      Susan. This was along the highway that goes out to Neah Bay, not far from the bridge over the Elwha River. It was clearcut years before and only these teenagers with attitude were around for my camera ministrations.

      Great photo! These trees have the typical shape they get when being clearcut survivors. And you captured them being green trees, not just dark silhouttes. That's very good in that mist and lack of light!!

      More great use of fog. The logged scene makes for a very unusual composition. I don't know whether I would have try this, but you've done something wonderful with it.

      Oh okay, I understand now their shapes. Yes, they were once jammed in with a lot of other trees so they don't have much fullness. They are spunky survivors then. :-)

      they look like they are being nudged or shuffled sideways by the fog - another stunning image IT : )

      Hans! Thank you for the compliment. All I did was aim the camera. The light that day was full of wonderful things!

      Tony! Thank you for the kind words.

      Susan. Indeed they are survivors. Logging practice changed the landscape by the moment.

      clinkerboy! Thank you! I never really focused on the why of the pattern, just that it was compelling.

      All of you have once again helped me see this anew. Thanks!!

      What a wonderful depiction of fog - I can almost feel it! I love the way the trees fade into it, becoming more subtly colored as they recede.

      Thank you, Jacki! Great to see you!

      Anu! Indeed! The problems that these survivors face is blow downs in high winds. Their roots are not very deep.

      ptwiz1 ! Indeed it was still and quiet. A gorgeous autumn morning!

      A beautiful image. Reminds me of why so many Northwest artists work in watercolors. Those trees are brushstrokes on barely wet paper.

      Very kind words, Evergreengirl! Thank you so much! I am pleased when people make references to paintings and watercolors.

      When I used to leave outside the city few times I had the chance to see the for in the morning and the impressive shapes you can see. However I was typically dissuaded by the cold to stay indoors... You have such a great shot here.
