You have captured so many fine elements of a moody fog image, Mitch. Great fog caught by the fence and a nice variety of trees. Well seen! #8778290

Nikki McDonald 7/21/2010 5:15:34 PM

What a wonderful mood this image evokes, Mitch. I always enjoy the layered effect a low lying fog or mist creates and you have the best of that here with the light just breaking over the foreground clearing, the well-defined fence, and the gradually fading layers of trees in the background. Lovely tones -- nicely done. #8779050

Beautiful Mitch! Is this in Cades Cove or just a field somewhere along your way? I lived very near the Smokies for about 2 1/2 yrs (like 40 min away). Justin and I spent quite a bit of time there but I didn't do much photography then. We will be going up there around Thanksgiving! I feel almost like its a 2nd home for me because when I was a kid, we always vacationed there, so I know the area well. Anyway, this is a wonderful image and congrats on your POTD!! #8803861

Cesar J. La Rosa 8/3/2010 11:10:40 AM
