Another reprint from my archive.

Fog-after-storm-Shams-No2-tonedNikon F4: T-max 400 at 320.ย  Kodak D76 1+1.

You could be forgiven for thinking this was the Yorkshire moors near where I live when in UK; but it was made on a very wet day at Jebel Shams.

I remember, because there had been a rock fall and a late friend of mine suggested we go and see if it was possible for us to depart the mountain. No such luck.

I was now faced with a trip on a helicopter and that is one form of transport I do not like …! well I also include the C130 (if I wanted to fly those I’d have joined the paratroops) but at least I will get on one if needs must .

But a helicopter at 10,000 ft is pushing the limits………

    1. Thank you,
      Despite the rain….. it was a good day for photography; reminiscent of Padley Woods (my wife lived in the old water mill as a girl)


      1. wow, one of my hunting grounds for long exposures (of water that is). I assume you mean the mill by the bridge just down from grindleford cafe ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Karen,
      don’t get many days like this, when I am able to photograph ‘in’ the rain; the storm was lower down the mountain so relatively safe.


  1. Misty magic. Superb image. REally wonderful. I could stare at this for hours. It’s amazing how this image moves the view from the clarity of the foreground into the foggy background. It’s a bit like moving from waking to dreaming. Wonderful!!!

  2. Excellent shot.
    Great example of the right balance of light & dark for a monochrome.
    I particularly like the portrait size (as opposed to landscape). Seeing that vertical range of rock, texture & mist receding in the distance makes a really good image.

    1. Thanks,
      Thankfully the F4 does not worry about a little rain; but I did – sat in the Landrover and set the exposure then out, quick compose – so was lucky.


  3. Love the mist in this one David and it is framed beautifully. Very atmospheric. I’m with you regarding helicopters, I didn’t even like going out to Fahal Island in one ๐Ÿ™‚
