Lost in the fog

A fresh snow blankets our landscape now, but today was surreal with an icy fog in the atmosphere that coated everything and made the trees fade right into the distant gray sky.

As my daughter says, the best camera is the one you have with you. But in this case, my phone camera captured the scene better than my DSLR!

The only thing that would have made this scene any more magical was a stray animal or two wandering the lonely landscape.

And now I’m a convert to phone camera photos!

  1. Those shots are amazing, Sue. They remind me of pen and ink drawings–the black and white tonalities are perfectly suited for the subject. As for phone cameras, sometimes our DSLRs are too smart and want to help us too much getting an exposure.

    • Isn’t that the truth. My minimum camera aperture couldn’t let in enough light without sacrificing ISO and shutter speed too much. The camera phone didn’t have that problem. I have new respect for it!!!

  2. Wise words, also pronounced by pro photographer Chase Jarvis, who wrote a book by the same title re: iPhone photography. Given its limitations, it’s an extension of our eye and memory. Sadly it’s also an excuse for an over-abundance of selfies, vs scenics. Nice shots!
