I trudged across the fields of Berkswell today in an effort to get some foggy, autumn pictures.

The fog was quite dense and the only noises piercing its sound dampening properties were the cries of the crows in the trees, the seagulls on the lake and the drip, drip of the water on the leaves of the trees as I waked under them. The air was cold and damp and the footpaths muddy, slippy and well-trodden.

Out of the gloom of the fog the trees continually emerged as I walked on.  In the distance the trees faded into an indistinct line on the horizon, all detail and contrast flattened by the fog.

The particular oak tree in the image below stood on the top of a rise in the field.  The orange and yellow leaves barely hanging on to the branches.  I was captivated by the flatness and quietness of the scene, all tones muted to browns and golds.

I took the photograph with my D800 and a 50mm f/1.8 standard lens.  I used the dehaze tool in Photoshop to increase the contrast in the tree and to make it more prominent.

Today’s photograph is from Charlecote Park where I went on Wednesday after an abortive attempt to go to Compton Verney to see the Martin Parr exhibition. Anyway the latter didn’t happen so as I was passing Charlecote I popped in. I spent the next two and a half hours, wandering around the gardens, watched herds of deer and walked through fields of buttercups. A very pleasant visit.

I’ve just noticed that whilst I blogged the last image processed for 2012 here, I haven’t blogged the first one I completed for 2013.

Well here it is.

Stoneleigh - January 2013

Stoneleigh – January 2013

Taken in Stoneleigh village at the start of the year, there wasn’t as much snow as the previous year, but I thought I might get some good images.
