Light and fog

The more photos I take, the more I realize that chance and timing play a large part in capturing desirable images. So it was back on an unseasonably warm day in December of 2001, when I was walking by the pond at Smith College near sunset. The air was full of moisture, and there was quite a bit of ground fog.

I thought that the light at this moment, coupled with the fog, gave this scene an ethereal quality. (This image is made from two photographs, stitched together in Panorama Maker4.) -- PL

Very nice..

You do such a nice job with these panoramas. Have you ever considered going into photography as a sideline? This is such a nice part of the country to go taking pictures..

Beautiful, Peter!

I don't know if any one has told you yet, but there is, in fact, a photo merge in CS4 but you have to use Photoshop with Adobe Bridge (which is included in CS4 and isn't too hard to figure out). I have used it on some large pieces of art and it works brilliantly.
