Mosaic Monday: I ♥ Fog



First of all, thanks to everyone who left comments of encouragement or commiseration on my post about house cleaning. I managed to get the house in decent shape, and the kids had a fun weekend. Now I just need to keep it clean... :)

I'm sharing a few foggy images this week. These were taken back in December. I love a good fog -- it's one of my favorite things to photograph outdoors. I tend to get in a photographic rut in the winter -- it's often too cold to take the camera outdoors, and I feel as though I have already shot just about everything I can in our little house. So this is the time that I often go back and start playing with older photos -- trying out different edits in Photoshop. For those of you who have Photoshop, I used some free actions from photographer Maria Kallin. You can download them from her blog here.

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  3. I love the fog photos, Mary. I was on the east coast last September and had a lovely time taking photos of fog rolling over the Cape Breton highlands down to a harbour of colourful fishing boats.

  4. The fog always looks so dreamy, and it is especially so in your photos, Mary. I have yet to purchase and venture into learning Photoshop. I'm encouraged to try one day by your beautiful photos.

  15. Fog has that dreamy, mystical quality. Either that or I just finished watching Once Upon a Time. ;>

    My favorite is the path through the forest with the sketches of children.

  34. Mary, the foggy images are wonderful, they give one a totally different feel of what one would expect from what we normally see. Images are cast off differently, mysteriously, and yet once the sun rises, it is still all there.
    We had foggy, misty rain filled days for our journey to the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge last week, where some 10,000 Sandhill Cranes were staging for viewing...
    Posts are already on my site, if you would want to view them.
    Have a marvelous week~
