Hiding in the Fog

Fog is one of my favourite conditions in which to shoot. I’m drawn to the fog because it allows me to hide things from the people who see my images. Parts of the frame are obscured, or missing completely, and so rather than a crystal-clear image you are left with something vague – merely a suggestion of an image.

Here a drystone wall snakes through the frame before disappearing behind a white veil. The fence-posts mark regular intervals that slowly get fainter and fainter, before they vanish altogether. Nothing here presents itself to you, instead hiding away in the fog, and forcing you to chase after it.
