The Others

(Click image to see the forest for the trees)

Wow, talk about an old image. I think I even posted this one a long time ago, but I revisted it, converted it to B&W and still love it.

I shot this back in February of 2010 in the little town of Corvallis, Oregon when I was up there for work. In fact, stopping for this shot made me late to the contractor’s office. I honestly had no choice but to stop and walk around this mushy, wet park after a good soaking the night before.

The fog was everywhere and I only wish I could have driven around all morning shooting this stuff.

The title comes from the TV show Lost…because when I see the thick fog and the lights from the houses in the distance…I automatically think “Others.”

    Holy cow is this awesome!! I dunno if I should be waiting for monsters to jump out, or if the aliens have already landed, either way, this is a wickedly awesome shot Mike!

  • Heath O’Fee

    Such a great shot, Mike. For some reason I really like the fog…I like the quiet of it and the fact that it makes the world seem smaller. So great.

  • Justin

    Totally creepy, but I love this image.

  • Brian Furbush

    Great shot Mike – the dense fog really adds a mysterious feel to this photo. I’ve always liked a layer of mist when looking at landscapes…very cool.

  • Tom Baker`

    Wonderfuly moody Mike. Love it.

  • Jan Winther

    Mmmm.. nice shot. Very moody. Looks like a place where the sun never shines.
    I can understand why you like it.

    Lovely capture Mike, with a nice air of eerie mystery. The tree on the right side of the frame is beautiful.

    Awesome shot Mike! I like the fog and overall mood of this shot, well done.

    Thanks so much guys. I was like a kid in a candy store with this stuff because we just don’t get fog like that here in AZ too much 🙂

  • Jesse
