Unusual scene beautiful photo Judy 🙂
Thank you, Jake!
How mysterious… Love it ! 🙂
I never thought of mysterious. Good word! 😉 It is!!! Thanks, zelmare.
diggingher….I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you. It’s been incredibly busy here, but I have not forgotten about posting for you. I will work on it within the next few days. Is that ok?
beautiful capture… Judy… :-):-)
Thanks, khushbu! Good to see you again, friend!
Love this capture Judy! That little bit of orange red peeking out. We are VERY foggy here this morning. How about you?
Hi Margie. We had tremendous fog yesterday, very thick and heavy…(Friday). Schools were delayed, I was out taking photos. 😉 Today we didn’t have any. That’s strange, isn’t it? Yesterday my daughter said Grand Haven was very foggy too, and they had school delays.
Thanks for your comment!
it looks like the ship is sitting on the clouds 🙂
ooo cool thought! I like your idea….it does kind of look like it’s floating on clouds instead of water! Thanks Amira~
Thank you, Judy!
Looks beautiful and ‘misterious’. Great shot, Judy!
love the word mysterious, Bindu! Thanks!
Nice capture Judy. It has a “creepy” feel to it. Reminds me of a film called “the fog”which spooked me, or in Scottich vernacular “gied me the wullies”
I love that! Scary films always “gied me the wullies”!! It does look creepy! Others have said “mysterious” too. Thanks Jim!
Ooooh, it looks like the ghost ship! Both eerie and beautiful!
It does look rather creepy, doesn’t it? 😉
I agree that this looks eerie, but in a somehow peaceful way. I love this photo! Great capture, Judy!
Thank you, Jenna! Fog can be very interesting sometimes..
How very cool, almost looked like it was stuck in ice!
Thank you, David! I didn’t think about that, but you’re right, it does look that way! BTW…congrats on winning the January MCS! Your photo is awesome.
Thank you, suitablefish, I appreciate your comment!
That is an awesome shot. 😉
Thank you, Eliz!
I have never been successful at taking fog pictures, at least none that I liked, until yesterday. That’s after 45 years of photography. I got yesterday’s picture after messing with the default Standard picture settings on my Canon 550D. I’m so much happier now. 🙂
I’ll have to come see it. I’ve tried many times and it just doesn’t turn out. This time in New Orleans…it was super foggy and the boat was appearing and disappearing. It had nothing to do with skill! lol
I have lots of relatives in New Orleans, and since I used to live in College Station and Houston, I’ve been to New Orleans hundreds of times. I’ve experienced that Mississippi river fog.
ok….it was new to me. We went two years in a row for church mission trips to help rebuild from Katrina. Those were my first times there. Great city…loved it.
All of my family members there suffered in Katrina. My sister (Chalmette), niece (University of New Orleans), and nephew (Slidell) all had their homes totally destroyed. Another sister also in Slidell had four feet of water in her home; it’s the only home left standing in her subdivision. Mom evacuated to Utah to her oldest brother’s place and never went back.
Wow. That is amazing. I’m so sorry for your family members. I cannot even imagine how horrific it must have been. To see the destruction even after 5 and 6 years is just incredibly sad. I hope everyone has resettled now. So many people still need help, but the Congregational Church and other churches have run out of funding. The last time we were there (Jan. 2011) people told us the churches were the only ones still helping. So sad.
