Focal Length:80mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

I took this shot a week or two ago on one of those sensationally lit mornings – sun shining through the fog. Whenever I see that sort of light, if I’ve got a free hour, I grab my cameras and head out the door. There’s always something that looks interesting in that kind of light.

The photos taken in sunlit fog also often convert well to black and white. I really like black and white photography. Do you?

I’ll share a few recent shots that I’ve turned to black and white over the next few days.

This shot was taken at the Russell Street crossing in Lebanon, Oregon. If you look carefully, you can see the water tower at Cheadle Lake in the background.

  1. There is something special about B and W! This is great!

  2. Very haunting. Love it.

  3. I really like the way B&W works for this shot, it draws the eye to the shapes in the rails. The only photos I ever converted to B&W were taken on a foggy morning – I’m a huge fan of color, but I agree with you that fog lends itself beautifully for B&W.

    • Thanks Sunsetseasoul! It is true, isn’t it about fog and black and white. Fog tends to rob photography of color because of the low light levels, but can look stunning in black and white. I’m not calling this shot stunning, but it is a good example of how that foggy transformation to B&W works well.
