I am suffering from a lack of fog so another step back into Winter. The scene once again the Tamar Estuary at Home Point, Launceston, Tasmania. There has been an influx of old wooden boats in the yacht basin and at the various slipways recently. Boats of all vintages and sizes are undergoing painting and general repairs. I wondered why and then remembered that the Tasmanian Wooden Boat Festival will be staged in Hobart in January 2007. Details reagrding this event can be found at http://www.australianwoodenboatfestival.com.au/html/about.html

Launceston itself staged a very minor event of the same nature earlier this year.

I saw the thumbnail firstDavid, and recognised it as yours!! It makes me wish I could have the mist and stillness here to try some similar shots. The colours are so soft and and the water and sky are never-ending!! Good one.

Hi David, great shot!
The reflections and the slow fading of the whole picture, really great!

More more more .....

We want more of these magical moods so well captured by your camera. Bravo David for this little beauty...

Great work! .... and thanks for the link to the Festival.

What amuses me is that 'Master of Foggy Weather' hadnt used this one before, just how big is the 'Fog Collection'
Like so many others in here I just wait (im)patiently for the next serving. It is beautiful David, a small ? how much water are they sitting in, the reflection from out of the fogis fabulous thank you.

Another lovely shot David, the fact that the horizon is hard to gauge makes it a superb picture.
Thanks for sharing.

The mono-tone background is perfect here - the boats seem suspended in time and space. I also like the soft reflections.

Very well done!

Wonderful colours and reflections. Subreal still foggy atmosfere with colours and reflections very bright and clear.
Amazing and beautiful image

I have figured it out now. I absolutely got stuck at the impressionists where art is concerned. Nothing that came afterwards could measure up. This is why I adore these photos of your's so much. There is a distinct impressionistic feeling. The colours and reflections are just "WOW". One day when I'm grown up I want to make pics like these.

Hi David,
This is a very beautiful photo with a great mood. Your really the king of fog. I like how these boats looks like floating in the middle of nowhere. I feel like in a dream.
Very well done.

Wonderfull creation David with nice looking soft colours! TFS

Hello David
good composition, wonderful colors, sharp and BEAUTIFUL bye bye

wonderful shot, david
perfect, i like it.


Another top notch capture David. I'm running out of accolades. All I can say is I really like your style of presentation.


like the clarity and contrast in this composition. great work with the reflection on the water. serene mood of this composition is due to the color of teh water and bg (my opinion). well done.

Very interesting and well seen composition. The mist creates a moody atmosphere.

Hi David,
Excellent foggy day photo my friend.
I like your sharpness,composition,reflections,note,colors,focus,exposure and lighting.Well Done.TFS

Fantastic once again, David and it goes right to my favs!

Superb! The boat seem to float in the air. Nice soft colours.

I understand why you are lacking fog photos, you do so well and your landscapes in fog are really something!

Great work!

Yan :)

Hi David!
This is somewhat surrealistic shot - as if boats are hanging in nowhere. Impressive effect!

Hello David,
no horizon at all, the boats seem to hover somewhere in space. Even the reflections seem partly to be swallowed by the fog.

Hello David, Absolutely stunning. I am including in my fav.

I have not been very active on TL in the past months but I did take some time to look at your shots as soon as I could. You are truly inspiring. I just hope I would have access to beautiful sceneries as you have. I also look at your wisdom quote you include with your posts. Please keep it up and keep shooting.

TFS, Marie-José

Hi David,
I'm enjoying this unusual shot where there is visibility to see the boats and their reflections, yet no horizon.
All the best,

Hello David.
You captured a great serene atmosphere here. I love the compo, the soft effect and the fact I can't see the horizon!
Really well done.
Regards, Francesco

Hello. Foggy day.... It seems just like a mirror. Wonderful piece of work. Well done. :O)

Oh.. it is very good photo!

Wow, I am so impressed this is absolutely beautiful. It would make a great picture to be hung on any wall. I would love it in my house. TFS

Hi Dave, I like! Excellent composition, focus and lighting. Good one.

Great how the water fuses with the sky to form a unique background. We sense a mood of great tranquility in this picture.


You seem to have captured the mood of the "dead-calm" perfectly David.
Well done!
Best wishes

Hello David.

Excellen picture, nice composition.

Jose Luis.

David, AMAZING...wonderful dream for me. My favorite.:) Vandana


Hi David

This is simply brilliant! Love everything about this shot. Congrats! :-)

Hi David. A remarkable water scene. It is exquisite with the fog making the line beween water and air invisible. It is excellent, like a dream. TFS. Murray.

PS It would make a fine painting also.

Very beautiful soft fogy effect. Nice smooth colours. Cool and beautiful landscape.
