#253 Fog or Mist
Posted By: slowpez, 08-05-2013, 10:36 AM

Keeping within last week's subject, lets see some water in the form of mist or fog. Either can make our world seem mysterious and ethereal. Have some fun and I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
This challenge will close on Monday, August 12th 11:59 pm. Have fun!

Rules are as follow:

1. Post one photo (max 1024 X 1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3.Post your single photo in this thread. If it's not obvious, explain what motivated you to submit the photo and how you feel it represents the weekly theme.
4.The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5.The judge will pick the winner, who will then host and judge the next week's challenge.
6.The challenge closes after seven days.This allows a day for the judge to pick the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung) DSLR is acceptable.
8. Photos can be from any time frame, not just the week of the current challenge.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge of the next week's challenge, the winner will PM the #2 winner and pass on the baton to that person to host and judge the next week's challenge.

Uh oh Susan, you sure have your work cut out for you! Don't envy you in the slightest in the judging of this one.
About my shot. Taken this last January at the local beach/park. Looking over one of the back lagoons, towards the wide walk overlooking the beach proper. Nice still day so I got some good reflections in the fog.

Here's some more fog from Hilton. Trucks on their way to Durban, slowing down in the fog.
