On July 21, dense fog descended on Marblehead in what one local described as a Smokey Sou’Wester. The fog was thick near the water but would clear quickly inland. I had left my car on Beacon Street near Grace Oliver beach and walked with the camera and tripod around the bend toward Fountain Park.
I passed this small road lined by trees and recalled shooting this scene in similar conditions years ago. It was a foggy day but much later in the year with many of the trees bare and had chosen a horizontal orientation.
On this day, I decided on the vertical orientation and the lushness of the grass and tree lined path shown through the dense fog. I added a few post-processing tricks I picked up over the years to add a bit of a dreamy look to the final image.
