Digital Camera Speed Challenge #474 - Smoke, fog, mist or vapour

Right now my area is covered in thick, stinking smoke from forest fires, making working or photographing outdoors unpleasant and unhealthy, but other kinds of smoke and mist can result in fine images. So look in your archives or even light some incense (or whatever) and show us what you can do.


***************
RESULTS!

Thanks to everybody for a goodly number of entries this week and here are a few comments on them:

texkam - "Out Of the Early Morning Mist" – gives a great impression of what it must've been like to run in conditions like that.

rwmson – "Opposing Diamonds" – I looked long and hard at this and really couldn't make out what it was. It seems far too symmetrical to be an actual photograph of smoke, mist etc. and I don't see where the diamonds fit in. Nice photo though, so please explain!

sandwedge - "Morning Fog and Steam: Norris Geyser Basin"– what more could one ask for? Fog and steam combined – very nice!

PaulB - "The Old Bridge – Edinburgh" - bridges disappearing into the fog are a favourite of mine. Good one.

OldCrow "– The Photographers" – a beautiful photograph reminiscent of an old oil painting. I love it!

WINNERS!

#1 – OldCrow
#2 – texkam
#3 - sandwedge

So it's all yours Don – take it away!

Opposing Diamonds is incense smoke shot against a black background with just a touch of post processing. ;-)a The photo was replicated/rotated/fli​pped in PS. The diamonds are rather faint and are mid-point on both left and right side.


yeah, I gots some stuff.

Sorry I just didn't get it, rwmson, although I did see the faint diamonds.:oops:

Here's what our town looks like this morning and has done for the past week. Covered with stinking smoke from forest fires like many others in the Pacific NW. Not healthy stuff, so we stay indoors a lot and hope the fires don't get closer.
