…morning light is magic…

Bridge to Nowhere

I always get excited from a photography perspective when it’s foggy out in the morning.  My favorite go-to place for fog shots is Brazos Bend State Park in Texas.  It was a particularly fogging morning on this outing.  The spillway bridge was almost completely fogged in making for a cool photo-op.   Broke out the 100-400 lens for hand carrying it around the park.

    Nice. When it’s that foggy out there it’s sometimes the only thing to shoot until the sun breaks through.

    • I tried to get him to flap his wings but to no avail. Maybe next time.

    I love shooting out at BBSP in the fog…Old Horseshoe Trail is my favorite area, but the trails in back of the park can be really nice too in the springtime!

    • Hey Jim. I haven’t spent much time on the other trails. I’ll have to add them to my list.

    • Sorry to shock everyone. It was too hard to spot many birds in that fog. I’ll go back to birds in my next post.

  5. I like the second one with the fisherman walking across. This may be the same guy I see fishing out there most of the time. I think it could be a good stock photo that can be used in some type of advertising. It can tell a story.

    • Thanks David. He wasn’t a fisherman but one of the park volunteers. The guy that always has the walking stick.

    • Thanks Sheldon. I try to put my spin on the photos when given the right conditions. I don’t just like snap shots.
