How come that when I get out to shoot birds I end up with sheep?

1 A little bit of haze and nice backlight.

2 Actually I did find some flying ducks 30 minutes later.

3 Maybe some of you remember this earlier post of mine?

4 That's how they looked last lazy saturday afternoon.

5 The next two images are photo stacks of 5 and 8 images at f16 in cs5.

6 btw the lighting was: 5500 kelvin light from front right and a flash with shoot trough umbrella from left. No natural light.

7 Then, Sunday morning the fog we already had got really heavy.

8 Perfect time to enter the woods.

9 That's as low as my tripod goes. Maybe I should start to mount my camera up side down.

Now after all this shooting and processing I definitely need a weekend rest.
Thanks for looking.

On a more serious note. Capturing and rendering fog images it is not so easy as it sounds. You did good especially in #7 where that cool cast gives the sense of misty cold weather and no hope to see the sun soon. A complete different feel from the first shot where the warm tones give a more pleasing feel and the hope for a sunny day.
I like the last shot, but I'm also thinking that a lower perspective would have isolated the fungus and made them more prominent. In other words "get on your belly next time"
Very nice job with the IF ducks

An interesting set, Chris.
As soon as I saw your last image and read the caption, I thought: "Get down and crawl around on your belly like a reptile." Tripods are a good idea most of the time. But not always .

#7 for me. I like the gradient from light to dark (top left to bottom right). I'm with Socrate, you did the fog very well.

Very nice job

Many thanks Socrate. You are right about #7. It took the sun two days to penetrate the fog. Very unusual around here. Normally the fog is gone before midday.
I like the last one but you are right, I should have taken another one much lower and closer to the fungus.
Thank you for taking the time Socrate.

Thank you Charlie. The ground was soaking wet but next time I will get down like a reptile.
Now I think of it: I do have life vieuw. I might just get away with wet knees and elbows.
