Cold winter stills

When I woke up this morning, I knew this day would be dedicated to taking pictures. I hoped for some sun and lots of yummy light to shoot in. I didn’t get that. Instead I got mist/fog and cold. Just as good as sunlight, I have to say. For a very long time, I’ve admired photos on flickr with mist/fog. It’s so beautiful. I’ve always wanted to shot that perfect misty photo. I’ve never gotten the opportunety before; not until today.

Mist/fog is really something that creates a special mood in a photo. A mood I’m specially fond of!

I was cold outside today. – 16 C. Brrrrr! I had to wear a hat, scarf and mittens in addition to a warm jacket. It didn’t take long before I was cold. After about 45 minutes I had to go inside again. I was too cold and my camera had low battery.

After I came in, I sat down in front of the computer, went through todays shot (around 80) and processed the photos I liked the most. While working I’ve listened to a lot of music. The playlist has been various Christmas songs, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Dukes and Patti Scialfa.

Here are todays photos; with and without mist.
