We rarely see fog where I live in Santa Fe, but there it was so I grabbed my camera and just down the road I came upon this scene.
55mm, f/22, 1/6s, ISO 100 and of course, a bit of photoshop.

  Thank you all so much!

Carolyn, I DO have this on my wall at 11x14, but perhaps your right...even bigger would be better. Thanks for the suggestion!

And Joyce, I may take you up on that Gold Fibre Silk...how big can you make it? :)

  So fabulous. Karen, you have got to enter this into some exhibits.

Joyce, where did you find the gold fibre silk? It sound wonderful. Kinda like the japenese water something paper I'm checking out.
