“Place conspires with the artist. We are surrounded by our own story, we live and move in it.
It is through place that we put out roots.” - Eudora Welty
Nice composition. I like the minimalist foggy atmosphere.
Thanks Robert. Fog certainly has a way of simplifying things.
Oo, spooky! Reminds me of a scene from Charles Dickens' "David Copperfield".
Funny you should mention Dickens. I almost included his rumination on fog from the beginning of Bleak House:"Fog everywhere. Fog up the river, where it flows among green aits and meadows; fog down the river, where it rolls defiled among the tiers of shipping and the waterside pollutions of a great (and dirty) city. Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights. Fog creeping into the cabooses of collier-brigs; fog lying out on the yards, and hovering in the rigging of great ships; fog drooping on the gunwales of barges and small boats . . . ."--and Dickens-like, it goes on from there.
Yep, I think Dickens was rather fond of the image. I suppose it came from living in such a foggy clime.
Wonderful image, Edd. For me, I would think of the "bog" scenes from the Sherlock Holmes movie The Hound Of The Baskervilles - beautiful but ominous... :-)
Thanks Glenn. Surprised at how "literary" this shot seems to be. When I made I was mostly interested in was the color of the weeds.
