Foggy Morning Photos

I woke up this morning to find quite a heavy fog in our area and thought that this would be a good day to capture some of its ambience on a new Olympus E-M10 Micro Four Thirds  Camera that I plan to take away on my next trip.

The area along the Yarra River at Templestowe is not spectacularly scenic but there is always something interesting to see. It’s only about 12km from the centre of Melbourne and I always think that we are blessed to have this area of bushland so close to our house. When I first started, the fog was probably too thick to provide good distant landscapes and by the time I had finished it had pretty much burned off to become a nice sunny day. All in all, it gave me good chance to experiment, try out some techniques and learn how to use some new technology.
