There were (and probably still are) dense fog advisories all around the area this morning.

I find fog to be a rather beautiful atmospheric condition but one that's hard to capture in photographs--because it's hard to get the sense of things being shrouded but not completely obscured by it without them being so vague in the photograph that they're hard to parse.

I went to two different places to take a stab at it--the little narrow forest road down to the wildlife refuge, which had the advantage of having some gorgeous autumn color all around too. The first of those two, I think, caught the fogginess better, the second I think does a better job with the whole late autumn vibe.

Then I went to the unloved stepchild of our three historic mansions--Oaklands Manor. I figured the fog would bring out the creepy-abandoned-house-ness of it. Which it sort of did. I'm not sure that the last photo--of two new houses with the manor on the hill behind and between them--quite conveys the almost Edward Scissorhands vibe of "totally normal suburban neighborhood with a "haunted" house right in the middle of it"...I'll keep looking for the right angle to convey that.

Keryl Maybe if that green, boxy, electrical *thing* wasn't there between the new houses, the creepy old house on the hill would look creepier?

The fog shots are great!
