Some people from a local photo club wanted to know why I have so few images of this bridge. So in order to raise the bar a bit, I'm trying to show the bridge with lots of things happening to it all at once. So when the rare coincidence of low fog and high clouds looks like it might occur, I'm off to the bridge. This is more like how it feels to be here.

After shooting a nice red sunset filtering through the mist, the clouds opened up and I lucked out! The intentionally overexposed moon was actually a very small thin crescent at 20mm, but the overexposure and movement over 2 minutes makes it look much larger and more full than it really was. I've commuted from the sun into the fog many hundreds of times, but it is better to watch it happen from here.

I am in a study at nearby Stanford University for an injection to cure my little finger (er um... 'pinky' according to Koen!), which is getting bent by a disease related to my ancestors being from Scotland! It must be the loch water or something, lol. Anyway, I will be away again from EPZ after this Thursday for a couple of weeks. So I'll try to catch up over the next couple of days.

The lights reflected off the water are very appealing as is the overall image.

Sounds like you might be from Morningside in Edinburgh, Patrick they drink tea with the pinkie pointing straight out, a terrible affliction or affectation which ever way you look at it.
Your image of the bridge is very interesting with the fog apparently traveling along the bridge structure while the moon shines high above.
Your work as ever is very interesting to view.
All the very best

Yes Martin, we had about 5 inches in the past 3 days, or 1/4 or our yearly total. That is normal though. The 5 biggest storms usually give us over half of our yearly rain. 8-11 feet of new snow in the mountains too!

Yes Ian, it is common amongst a small group but is still considered rare in the world.

Thanks Martin, the conditions were changing so rapidly that I tried to get a pano but each shot lasted too long and things were too different from shot to shot to produce a decent join!

Thanks for looking in and for the 2008 wishes too!

It will be Janet I hope, but both mine have it.

Yes Ian, it is common amongst a small group but is still considered rare in the world.

Thanks Martin, the conditions were changing so rapidly that I tried to get a pano but each shot lasted too long and things were too different from shot to shot to produce a decent join!

More ooooh's and ahhhhh's from the east coast on this lovely image, P....Smile

Well, how about the highly acclaimed 'Megamuff Award'???

LOL!

Oh well, I'll give it a couple of days, surely you'll get something.....Smile

Cheers and Be careful of those Stanford Studies, your Mug may show up in a medical book...Smile

Have a good night,

PS: You do know what they say about men with the cursed bent pinky syndrome, right???!!!

Well, I'll leave that be for now....LOL!

And thanks Nick (warney) for your award too!

Yes Terry it is the overexposure that does the trick! In the full version you can see the crescent but even the dark side is overexposed here so it looks full.

Pretty dumb question from your local photo club if you ask me - producing shots like this is justification enough.

Really fine shot - lots of interest and classy comp - the moons a real bonus - I might have hoiked the moon over to the left myself, just to balance it it up a bit ?? - who knows Smile

Hmmmmm, I thought your Kodak Instamatic Camera only required 1 hand to use????

This is what you need to do:
Get one of those flash cubes you've got lying around the Smith Mansion and snap it on good and tight, then grab a roll of 120 film, move the old bed pan out of the way, give your nursemaid the day off or maybe have her go to the grocery and pick up a large bottle of geritol that you may have run out of by now.....LOL!

Then.....Start snapping some pics...Smile

Hope you're up and about soon, we sure do miss your Kodak Moments...Smile

Its known as being tight fisted, If a scotsman dropped a pound coin it would hit him on the back of the head.

Thanks for looking in. No money yet but I'm working on that.

Sorry Sean, but I get the same thing over here sometimes, so don't feel bad!

LOL Steve!

Hi Patrick!
Long time no see - but I do see your photos are still as stunning as ever. We are more in your neck of the woods - well, closer in relative terms bearing in mind the size of this country - just down south a bit in Bakersfield. Not quite as pretty as your surroundings...ha ha! Unless you like oil wells! Wink
just thought I would say hi and enjoy some shots. Hope the surgery went ok. My Uncle recently had an op for the same thing.
Take care

Bakersfield Sweetpea? Well it is sort of in my neck of the woods, or at least the shoulder, or actually how about the armpit of the woods?

We will see what happens. Are you doing any photography there?

Also, when would you advise the best time to visit San Fran (least busy!) - we'd like to get there before the visa expires later this year.

Sorry Sweetpea, I didn't see your note until now! Kings Canyon is a 5 hour drive Southeast of San Francisco. It si the deepest canyon in N. America. It is like Yosemite without all the people, like Yosemite was 100 years ago. It is a narrower canyon with fewer grand overlook spots like Yosemite. Mid September-October is best both for weather and the kids are in school then.

Thanks Mark.

I really love this bridge and mist shots - as I said in your later upload (sorry, working backwards at the moment!), it strikes me as menacing and that intrigues me. I think I'd prefer to see a bit cropped off the right-hand side though...
