For a photographer, fog is a welcome addition to any scene, but especially so among the trees of a forest. Fog, by its very nature, is a mysterious isolator. Within the silence enveloped in fog, there are effects of its presence that are in opposition to one another, for not only can the mist conceal objects at a distance, that very concealment can then reveal subjects that may otherwise go unnoticed among the chaos of the same forest without fog; and moment to moment, any specific scene is constantly changing, dependent on its density and distance. The mystery of what lies beyond the mist is a constant that permeates any photograph. These are the images that ask questions?

In the image above, a dense fog eliminated much of the clutter in the background, revealing in isolation, the delicate branches of the serviceberry and its buds neatly framed by the trunks on either side. Yet mere moments later the fog thinned, and the background, now more visible, swallowed the serviceberry.
