Around Here Week 48

I live about a half mile up hill from the Cuyahoga River. Many mornings the river valley is shrouded in fog that gradually lifts by mid morning. It makes for wonderfully atmospheric landscapes.

I ran this photo through a filter to increase the contrast between the trees and the fog. It heralds the end of autumn to me. The leaves are down but the snow hasn’t yet started.

  1. Wow! That’s just lovely . . . and soon those same branches will be covered with frost and/or ice!

    Beautiful!! This view is definitely calling out for some threadplay! I’ll look forward to seeing what you make with this as inspiration. I’m not near a river but am in a wooded area and just a few lots down from a marshy area. The effects of early sunlight through rising mist and leafless trees can be stunning, and all the more special because it’s different every time.

    • One of my goals this year has been to really see what’s around me, so I’ve been staring out my windows a lot. Dawn and dusk are wonderful shows. I thought of trying a discharge to get the ghostly outlines of the trees.

  3. Oh my gosh, that takes my breath away. It looks like a painting, especially the background sky; good filter work. I can envision a painted whole cloth with thread-work trees.

    I love your photo, sometimes I get up early and walk the Gorge Metro path as it is really lovely and foggy and the trees have an eireness that is very appealing to me, plus the,path is paved so you don’t trip on roots since you don’t have clear vision. Have you seen some of the new digital prints that are made into panel now. I’ll bring the one I did that reminds me of your photo.p

    • Thanks, Dolly. You must walk a different Gorge path than I’ve taken as I don’t recall it being paved. I’ve seen photos printed on canvas and metal, which take on the look of art. I don’t know if that’s the kind of print you’re talking about.
