Mist After the Storm

Mist among the trees.

Mist in the valleys after the storm, like cobwebs or cottony snow on the Christmas tree, tangled in the treetops.

For an idea of how high up I am where I’m photographing this valley, in the lower right of the photo, right above the treetops along the bottom edge, if you look closely, you’ll see a neighborhood of tiny houses way, way down there.

The Tiny Town

After a storm in August, there was some awesome mist in the valleys around here, I was out for an errand, and couldn’t resist. I couldn’t find a good spot in one of the valleys to photograph it, so I found a high spot and photographed it as the sun went down.

But it’s not so easy as that. The first set of photos I took were all overexposed because I bumped the dial on my camera and didn’t notice I had moved it to manual settings. I got in my car after 1/2 hour of photos and sat down to look at them before I left, which I usually don’t do, and all of them were…interesting…but not really what I saw. I started my car and left, driving down the road, thinking I had just missed an opportunity I’d never see again. I looked down into the valley as I drove and saw the mist was still there, not quite like it was when I had photographed it earlier, but still pretty nice. I turned around went back and did it all again.
