The water drips really catch my attention. Very nice, Astrid.
Picturit: The fog was so thick and heavy and it was cold, everything was wet, waterdrops all over the place, thanks Mary.

Astrid these are so captivating I LOVE your foggy photos. Just gorgeous!! Love the rain drops, the cow, the DOF.It stirs emotions in me.
Picturit: Gale, thank you so much for your kind words, I had to use my dictionary to give you a rigth answer, for, to me fog has also some mystery in it, it indeeds keeps me captivating too, always wondering what is beyond......
I think you now know why I love to be out here and just to be by myself, it is pure magic and I feel sorry for those who cannot see or feel it...

Astrid but there is a break in the fence just after the post,I hope you were not cattle rustlinggringrin

Another lovely shot here mijn vriend.Love the cow in the back ground and the drips of water on the fence. Just like tear drops.

Keep rocking smile
Picturit: You did not see where the end of the fence is, in the middle of the water grin I know I can swim....but there is a limit in tricks just to take a picture, even to me smile....thank you for your kind words, yes a lot of 'tears' that day in the fog........

Alhowel het mistig is heb ik zelden zo precies en zo van nabij de grafische,geometrische structuur van een draadafrastering gezien- bijzonder mooi met de regendruppels! En mooi vind ik ook om zoals door een draadraam de kooe in de achtergrond te bekijken die verder graast rustig en tevreden met haar lekker ontbijt, het vochtige-frisse gras mocht voor haar nog smakkelijker zijn! B&W, dit mistig-grijs, ist erg toepasselijk!
Picturit: Ja, zelfs een draad-hek-werk is mooi, het is heel kunstig in elkaar gezet, het verweerde houten paaltje erbij, de sloot, het natte gras, de mist, de koe, ja Philine dit zijn de dingen waar ik ook enorm van kan genieten, de mist geeft mij altijd een gevoel van rust....

Love this Astrid, it has started me wishing for a foggy day
Picturit: Do you have a webcam? next time I will phone you by Skype and show you, better would be just to come over and see for your self, only we never know when there is fog...

You continue to inspire me to look more closely at my immediate surroundings for subject matter.

This is another great image from an ordinary, everyday scene.
Picturit: Colin, that is what I do too, I observe, see, look around, wonder how it is made, see the beauty and than I am very lucky to capture that and to show and you made me very happy with your kind words.
Astrid.
Very nice composition Astrid. I like the water drips and the framed cow.
Picturit: Those drops made it for me almost perfect, fog and drops of water, for me those are together, thank you for your kind words.

In a field of fog
I wander alone
with my thoughts
finding solace
in its heaviness
that occludes
Picturit: In a field of fog
I walk around
with my camera in my hand
to capture the beauty
that always is there
but only seen by those few
who will walk into the morning dew
Astrid.
Excellent composition Astrid: the cow makes it perfect. It's foggy here in the UK too
Picturit: Chris thank you so much for your kind words, we had some fog and sun, now the moon is out...wink

I'm loving these foggy ones of yours Astrid. Beautifully composed - the presence of the cow in the background really makes this shot for me.
Ingrid
Picturit: Thanks Ingrid, there were a few cows, but as always they started to move around when I wanted to capture them, this one stayed, lucky me tongue

Mooie foto weer! Aan de ene kant heb ik zoiets van jammer dat die koe er nog bij staat. Aan de andere kant heeft het wel weer wat moois op de foto!
Picturit: Het is alijd moeilijk om een keuze te maken, die koe stond er echt...maar ik kan natuurlijk hem ook eens weghalen, de foto iets inkorten en kijken wat het doet, Robbie bedankt voor jouw reactie.

Another good shot Astrid, and love the placing of the cow in just the right place.
Picturit: I was lucky with the cow, it was there and I had to get it in.
Astrid.
This is an excellent shot. Love the perspective with the fence post and wire. The mist and cow add to the mood. Just a great image.
Picturit: Thanks John, I am pleased you like it, thanks for visiting.

I wonder if the cow was aware of you in the mist. Nice shot Astrid Like the drips.
Picturit: No, she was so busy eating and chewing and and there was no wind wink
Thanks for your kind words.
Astrid

Picturit: Thanks Bill, it was a big delight to be out there, I love the sun and blue sky, but fog is my 'friend' too.

I love the cow in the back round. It almost looks like a mirage!
Picturit: Everything looked like a mirage, when I drove, slowly the part became more visable.
Astrid
Gorgeous shot, Astrid. The cow takes it from being a very good shot into the excellent realm.
Picturit: Thank you Micheal for your kind words, this fog is magic to me, it adds to the imagination I think.

When I first saw this shot awhile back, Astrid, I got the biggest smile on my face because of how you framed that cow. I think you were brilliant in that moment. For me, it doesn't get much better than this. smile
Picturit: Thanks Ginnie for your kind words, yes I was in that spot on the right time, I had the most beautiful fog, not to heavy not to weak, just to give that mystery view, bedankt voor je lieve woorden, ja jij bent de enigste die ik een preview geef, smileI have to admit, it looks easier than it is...
Astrid.
This series of these landscapes with fog I am liking very many. I am going to choose this one like new Likey!
