Hi all!

While others post - or soon will do so - wonderfully colored leaves, I would like to show another aspect of autumn. During my walk today that lead me to the summit of the Muschenegg (~1300m) in the Kanton of Fribourg, I was almost all the time envelopped in a smooth carpet of fog. I was happy, because I was alone except a fox and some chamois that crossed my way.

I confess I was a bit melancholic, but not sad. This picture somehow reflects my mood.

Kind regards

N.B.: I used a monopod; RAW-file, transformed into TIFF, very little postprocessing (levels, correction of the very bright spots), sharpness and JPG for TN.

Hi Markus,
and there really is so much mood here too! What a great shot, i would have loved to have been here too. So much depth created by the fading trees into the fog and great exposure.

Hello Markus,
Oh, so serene and peaceful mood in this captured!
The clarity of the photo is so amaze even with the smooth carpet of fog!
very well composed and well seen
thanks for sharing

this is a very interesting photo. It seems like a B&W photo, but it isn't...:D Very beautiful shot!

Hi Markus,j'apprécie cet ambiance qui semble fraiche et paisible,excellent travail

It is an absolutely stunning shot and brings out emotion. Then you tell your thoughts and it evokes more thought from me. A wonderful reflection on nature at one of its gaps in time..

Bonjour Markus,
Etonnant de voir cette photo en couleur apparaissant comme en n/b. Il est vrai que les paysages sous le brouillard peuvent rendre les êtres humains mélancoliques..c'est aussi la saison qui le veut. (Je me demande juste ce qu'est cette espèce d'échelle entre deux arbres).
Surprenante et très "moody" ton image.
A bientôt

Hello Markus! Very original texture. Beautiful fog. Good perspective. Nice effect. Very nice take. Best regards!

Hi Markus,

your mood is a great mood! Excellent composition and light managing.



Hi Markus.
a very nice picture with a nice light and soft colours.
The fog make this to a very intersting picture.
Well done.

Hi Markus. This is a beautiful picture . I just love the way the fog hangs in the air. to give the shot a sense of Mood about it. A very good compostion with the line of fence post going up the hill. with just a tuch of colour in the grass. very well done TFS.

Hi Markus

Splendid atmosphere and very lovely for me!!

Hi Markus,
Just marking this shot and will come back later with a proper critique.

hello markus,
what a lovely post, the lighting and the shades are just beautiful, well composed shot, nice pov, the fog looks beautiful
well done,
tfs & regards

Hi Markus,
These are the kind of photos I like. It instantly has a kind of mood that makes me feel wonderful and brings back memories from the foggy morning in Scotland. It seems that I will have a similar opportunity this weekend and I do hope to experience it again.

What I really love about your photo is the soft feel of the trees and the hint of light shining on the pasture behind the trees. This is just the right color boost the photo needs. I also think that the shape of the trees help to convey the melancholic feel to the photo.

A really beautiful photo.

I am sorry that I missed this!
I was actually looking at a couple of my recent fog captures and decided against it! I wish I had seen this -- you'd have given me the courage (ah well - it will wait for a few days)
Wonderful textures, superb mood, very fine composition

Bonsoir Marcus,
Excellente composition et couleurs, j'aime bien la brume qui donne un effet de Noir & Blanc, Excellent point de vue, Salutations ,

Hola Markus,
bien captada la atmósfera de niebla con una controlada luz. Quizás las escalera del centro mejor no verla :-)

Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

hello Markus

the result is a picture with a great visual attraction



Hi Makus,
I like the mysterious mood in this photo.
Light is simply beautiful!

Beautiful image, from a simply subject you caught a very nice picture, correct light and great poin of view.
Many compliments, as always.

Beautiful photograph, at first, I thought the ladder over the fence took away from the naturalness of it, but then....it really adds as I visualized climbing over the fence to keep on walking in the fog. Nice shot.
