While out early on an autumn day, at the Windham Path in New York State, I found myself slowly being surrounded by a fog that was enveloping the whole area. I love to try and photograph fog, and this was an unexpected opportunity. The challenge was trying to compose the shot, because it was changing all the time by the fog's density and movement. It also made exposure more difficult.
I learned from my study of Aesthetic Realism, founded by the important critic, Eli Siegel, that how opposites are one in a photo, like hardness of form & soft light, or the hidden & shown, is what makes for beauty. I found myself as if I was within a 19 century landscape painting with the soft, yet intense hues of color trying to be of each other, and yet maintain their independence. It was a most rewarding life experience.
