A Thick Fog Covered Wassookeag this Autumn Morning.

There was a very thick fog completely covering Lake Wassookeag this autumn morning. It can completely transform the landscape in a way that often makes a common scene unrecognizable as being the same place. As the early morning sun rises, the low angle, especially when at a right-angle to trees, hill, and other forms, it can enhance the impression of three dimensionality by accentuating form and contrast. This is why it is often highly desired by painters, photographers, and cinematographers. As when dealing with snowcapes where there is a lot of white, it can create a special challenge to get exposures correct. They can either come out too dark or too light where the highlights are blown out. Standard light meters are programmed to average out scenes to arrive at what is called a 15% gray. Learning to use a histogram in digital photography is highly recommended.
