I really like shooting in fog because it adds moodiness and atmosphere to shots. However, there is a limit to this.
When I started yesterday, it was probably a little too foggy. Like I said in the last post, I could barely see to the center of the channel. I do like the obscured look in this shot but it was kind of difficult to focus.
I decided to get some pictures of the lighthouse (more on that later) and then headed down the river to get other shots. I was actually hoping the fog would clear up as I headed down. I guess it did a little bit.
Again, I like the kind of obscured shots. I like it that you can make out the bow but not really the pilothouse.
As the ship moved a little closer, I could make out more of her.
I really like this shot.
And then she headed down the river.
Then I headed down to Marine City. The fog was a little better, but not much.
The ship was a little clearer here but not much.
I was able to get the shot I wanted though.
The almost full beam shot.
A shot of her pilothouse.
And she continues down the river. I believe she was heading to Montreal with a load of grain from Thunder Bay.
