Fog.

Driving home from work the other day, I noticed what seemed like patches of smoke along the highway.

I live near a few smaller lakes and as I drove closer to home, I noticed the thick clouds forming right over the water like a hazy smoke. It had just stormed and the air was slowly getting cooler. I quickly drove home, grabbed Adam and we drove to the lake so I could take some pictures before the last bit of daylight disappeared.

I’m still very much learning my camera. One of my goals for the new year was to play with the settings more so I can become very comfortable with making adjustments on the spot. This night just showed me the difference a little change in my camera’s settings can make.

  • Looks gorgeous!

    Love your new site :) One recommendation – can you make the text bigger? It’s kind of hard to read!

  • Those are some really great pics :)

  • I love how one setting change can create such a different photo! :) I need to learn how to use my camera… And instead of just saying it, I just have to do it.

  • Thank you, friend. I made it a little bit bigger..how is that? I don’t want to make it too big but that default was definitely WAY too small!

  • I’m the same way. I need to just do it or I’ll spend my time staring at my camera or going straight for the “Auto” setting. Go for it!

  • Beautiful pics, Katy!

  • Your pictures are beautiful!! Wow. I love the early night-time ones… what kind of camera do you have? :) Great pics! Loving the site!

  • That is some intense fog! You can’t even see the building!

  • It was SO intense! I’m glad I could capture a bit of it on my camera.

  • Thank you, Angie! I have a Nikon D3000. I love it!

  • Those pictures are awesome! I’m looking into buying a fancy camera soon to get better pictures…which did you buy??

  • Thanks! I have a Nikon D3000 and really like it. I did a lot of research between Canons and Nikons and they are pretty much the same, it’s just feel and preference. I liked how this model felt in my hands more than a Canon. I was more comfortable with it. Check out reviews on newer models of Nikons as well. If you need any help, let me know!

  • I love fog, and it’s so rare to get to see it here. How fun. :)

  • I love your pictures! I really want to take more time to learn how to use a DSLR without auto settings.
