[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This glimpse of morning fog and mist gracing the banks of the Machias River and burning off against the first warmth of the rising sun is a prequel to my Bad Little Falls post. The image here less than a quarter mile above the point where the river reaches Bad Little Falls shows perhaps the last relatively serene stretch of river before it cascades oceanward, gaining force and turbulence as it hurtles over the rocks at the falls.

The morning fog, my eyes focus on. You captured it well, perhaps cropping about 1 inch off the top of picture/sky. Tks

Hi Jim!

The morning fog and mist makes this picture very mysterious. Very well composed and
executed photograph.


Hello Jim,
Pleasant landscape capture!
The mist adds some mystery, I like the composition and the effective framing...
Good foreground interest and a fine feeling of depth!

Hello Jim

A beautiful capture of the morning mist as it rises of the river.
It creates a lovely atmosphere.
You have managed the morning light well and the subdued colours add to the effect.I really like the look of the water,it has a very mystical look to it.
The pastel tones in the sky are beautiful.


Super impressionnnant, composition magnifique et le jeu entre la brume et le ciel clair est extraordinaire.

Vewry nice. You have captured th almost Thule fog. There is a mystery quality and showed in the fog but still clear enough to be clearly what it is..
