Welcome back and happy Friday!

Yet another busy week comes to a close. Had a few too many of these lately, but now look forward to some fun photographic projects I’ve been wanting to get to for some time. With that in mind, perhaps I should have named this “out” of the fog. :-)

Today we return to the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay on a foggy morning, the same morning that I captured this sunrise. The scene below was so peaceful and eerily quiet that I simply sat and enjoyed the atmosphere for awhile after taking this shot. There was no boat traffic, people or even a crashing wave, just the fog and near silence.

Looking northward from this point where the Susquehanna River empties into the Chesapeake, there are several bridges which in this case, have faded into the fog.

A generous crop was given to this image to create a bit of a pano look and follow the bridge lines. After merging the 3-exposures (-2 to +2) in HDR Efex Pro and cleaning the final image up a bit, I applied a dash of the  “Brilliant Cold” filter in Topaz Adjust 5.

Thanks for stopping by, gang. Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Wow. You really used the fog to good advantage Jimi. The first bridge pops, and each successive one fades more and more. Great work.

    Lovely shot Jimi. I can see why you would just sit and enjoy the peacefulness of this scene. Love the way you’ve processed it. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Really like the graduated disappearing act with the bridges. Nice job, Jimi.

  8. You have captured the fading out of the three bridges as they progressively are further into the background wonderfully. The white gulls on the posts in the foreground add a nice contrast to the yellow of the bridges.

    Very mysterious. I love the fog sometimes, but I can’t say I’ve ever been successful at taking a nice photo in it.

    I feel like you could just chill in this location, and kinda lose track of time. What a great day to spend a friday. :)

    Happy weekend to you too, Jimi! :)
