A couple of weeks ago, there was some pretty heavy fog in Mississauga that lasted a couple of days. Personally I think that fog gives such a beautiful effect to landscape photography. It creates this amazing gradient in the colours and tones and looks so dynamic when turned to black and white. As I was walking back to my apartment from the parking garage, my eye caught a lamp post that was giving off this bright light that mixed so well with the haze of the fog. It was shining on some trees and created the most interesting backlight and moody atmosphere. I knew that I wanted to take a walk and see what I could capture as the sun was setting.
As I started my walk around, the sun was setting, but the effect of the lamp posts made for some great light effects in the landscape.
I found this setting so interesting. As I made the exposure long enough to let more light in and capture more detail, the street lamps mixed with the fading sunlight made for a dreamy coloured hue that made it look like a soft sunset. I love the haze in this photograph and it was so interesting to see the final product of the different exposures.
Once the sun fully disappeared, the atmosphere became a bit more eerie, but I loved the effect the haze of the fog gave to the light of the street lamps. It's those prominent rays of light that are so defined and clear that I really love.
While heading back to my apartment, I noticed the light shining through the trees and loved the look of the rays. There's something so eye catching about thick rays in the air. It gives so much more depth into the emotion of the photograph.
Thank you for reading!
I hope you enjoyed this little foggy adventure!
