Mystical Mountain Friend - Fine Art Inspirational Nature & Landscape Photography by Josiah Friberg

"The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice....Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne....For Thou art the LORD Most High over all the earth; Thou art exalted far above all gods." - Psalm 97:1,2,9

I recently decided that I need to "master" photographing things in FOG. Let me tell you, shooting in fog is not very easy. The diffused light coming through fog is often much brighter than one realizes. In fact, the light meter in most cameras gets fooled by the fog and tends to adjust in such a way as to make the final exposure much too dark and underexposed. I'm now learning to use the "E.V. Compensation" setting on my camera to open up the exposure to let in more light. Generally, so far, I've found that adjusting one f-stop or 1.3 or 1.6 is about right. I do also use my histogram after the fact to check on the exposure and see if I got it right.

This "fogscape" was taken up on the top of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, about 15 minutes from Blowing Rock and Boone.

As I've mentioned previously, I've always had a love for being in in the mountains and by the seashore. When I saw how foggy it was a few weeks ago on my way to work, I decided to drive along the beautiful and densely wooded to see what I could find. I came upon this mysterious scene and knew that I had found a real treasure and a new "mysterious mountain friend."
