Fog on the Delaware River

Photograph info: This photo was taken on Friday morning. La NiƱa has robbed us of traditional winter weather but it's been a visually interesting season nonetheless.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens at 70mm, f/9, 1/160s, ISO 400. Basic curves adjustment.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!




I too love to capture the early morning fog. The scene speaks of quiet and serenity.

Thank you, thank you, and thank you for bringing this kind of beauty to the rest of us.

Kathleen, I always love the river "Shots", even though you can't see the river. My guess on where it was taken, from the Riegelsville Bridge, looking north?

La Nina is confusing us all and the further north the greater the confusion. All we can do is make the best of it and enjoy our lower fuel bills.

TJS: As I mentioned at Eric's Eagle Scout ceremony today, either you know the river very well or you saw me on the bridge in my fluorescent orange hunting jacket, haha! Good job. :)

through the clouds peep tips of land
like islands in the sky
who's to say where she doth stand
who knows where the rivers hide
and wisely wrapped in brilliant colors
a fog photographess should be seen by others
lest as she clicks, she doth forget
visibility is poor and roads are wet

I am glad you were there to picture this. I would not like the fog.

I have never seen fog this thick since I left San Francisco. I miss the chill of the fog vapors when you walk to your car across the parking lot. This fog looks so thick that you could scoop it up in your hand and then blow it away.

I've been meaning to get up early for fog, but fogs are few and far between where I live. Beautiful picture though.
