Fog – Featured Art Prints

I can honestly say I haven’t really ever tried to take pictures of fog….not saying I haven’t, but just not actively sought it out as a subject matter. Having lived here in the desert Southwest for over 4 years , I have almost forgotten what it looks like. Our house in San Diego was just three miles off the coast, so very familiar with it for all of those 20+ years we lived there. Having said all of that, these three art prints have that item in common…they all have fog in the composition of the setting. Not “oops” I can’t see anything fog, but subtle mood setting hints of fog. All three of these scenes were created from photographs where I used a classic watercolor technique to soften them up to complement the fog feature.

This first scene is along the Oregon coastline and the fog was just lifting from the surf as you can see along the top of the frame and also along the bluffs in the background.

The Rock in the Coastal Surf

This next feature is the entrance to a fishing harbor along the New England coastline. Again, the fog isn’t prominent in the scene, but sets a tone in the background against the trees.

“Morning Fog In The Village”

This last picture takes us back to Oregon, where the low-lying fog was burning off above this farm. It had been a morning of light rain, when the clouds started to break up. The farm actually caught my attention, but when I realized I also was capturing the fog drifting over the field, knew it was a perfect combo.

“The Fog and The Farm”

In all three, the fog adds a feel and look to the final scene that would convey an entirely different message without it. Thoughts?

    Fog often adds an air of mystery to a scene. The photo of the fog lifting over the farm carries a message of light and hope. I love it!!

    I agree that fog or mist adds an extra dimension to a photo. Perhaps a sense of mystery. I especially love the coastal photo Kirt. Truly beautiful.

    Beautiful images! I’m learning all the nuances of fog and mist in our new Pacific Northwest home, and I love it. Not at all like the pea-soup fog of the east coast…

      The pea soup fog is a different animal than the misty type….in San Diego when the fog would role in from the ocean you were never quite sure which type you were in for…more often than not it was the misty type but in winter months it would be pea soup type….thanks for the feedback and for stopping by Diane!!

    Lovely photos, Kirt. Stumbled upon our blog through Susanne Leist’s site. Fog is fascinating and ominous and at the same time beautiful. Seeing these photos made me think of the movie, The Fog. Nearly scared me to death! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work. 😆

      Sorry was trying to edit comment and hit send instead…:(. Had to laugh at your reference to the movie…hadn’t thought of it before, but it did bring a visual to me also. Thanks for your kind words and glad you found me via Susanne!!
