Ducks on a Foggy Morning

Daily Photo & daily photos

I’m still committed to one new photo a day, every day of the year. It’s tough! Even though I thew a good 8,000 of them at you yesterday, that won’t slow me down… I’ve got a lot of cool projects and ideas that excite me, but the daily photo is still the main ship…

Making-of video

I got a lot of questions yesterday about how I made that video… so I will put together a making-of video soon. I’ll show you how I did everything so you can try the same thing on your next adventure. It’s kind of a fun idea, and I’m glad it worked out.

Updated Tutorials

We are making some upgrades to the French tutorial, and the Italian one is almost done. It is in the final stages of getting up on the site… this is yet another thing on my to-do list. You should see my to-do list… it’s never-ending, I tell you.

Daily Photo – Ducks on a Foggy Morning

There is a soft silence that covers still waters in the early morning. If you’ve ever been by a slow-moving river before the sun is over the horizon, maybe you know what I mean. It reminds me a bit of the name of the wind, in that it folds one silence into another.

When driving across the southern part of Iceland towards Wik, I went through an area of several miles where there was a sudden fog. I felt like it might not last long, so I went on a quick hike over near a slow-flowing river. Some ducks were having a morning swim off towards the misty horizon.

    Absolutely awesome – love everything about this – the colors – like a painting and so serene and peaceful – instant wallpaper- thanks Trey!

  • It’s encouraging to see you do a photo in the fog. I’m usually apprehensive about doing HDR work in the fog – in fairness the fog we get here very seldom tends to drift that low to the ground. ‘Scotch Mist’ tends to be all encomapssing, giving you that impression that cutlass-wielding pirate ghosts could emerge at any moment and drag you to the foggy oblivion…..okay maybe not but you know what I mean. Our fog generally spoils HDR fun – nice work.

    Wonderful pastel colours and subtle contrast… excellent!

  • Vicki Wilson

    Beautiful, love the fog and colors!

  • Those mountains in the rear? Surreal. Wish I had some mountains around here. Some fog would be nice too! 🙂

  • Cool shot! I really like the color. The fog makes everything so serene. Awesome image!

    Beautiful capture of a foggy morning in Iceland. Thanks for taking that little hike to take this photo of the ducks in the river. One of my favorites!!! Thanks for sharing. Have a great Presidents Day! 🙂

  • Coincidental that you should post a photo with fog this morning, since I used one of yours to illustrate a point about it on my blog today (with all proper attribution and link back here). I wish we had more fog in Florida, but it’s rather elusive here.

  • I look forward to your daily posts. I continue to get inspired by following your work. Appreciate the sharing of your knowledge for the love of photography.

  • Know that you have a devoted following.

    Beautiful shot! Wondering if this is the 28-300mm??

  • Amazing mood and fantastic soft tones, Trey. This is for me one of your best from this year and from the Iceland set !

  • Thank you very much!

    Donnette – thanks for the comment — appreciate the devotion!

    Richard – Looking at it now, I think I used the 28-70mm. I was in a bit of a hurry because of the ducks, so I cropped it down later in Photoshop

  • Damn Trey, how you stuble across so many beautiful locations/scenes baffles me! You deffinetely are the person whos at the right place and at the right time lol. Wonderful shot. I think I’m going to have to download a collection of my fav shots from you and set them as my desktop wallpaper.
