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!

    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.

    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.

    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 🙂
