Could this photograph of distant trees be the worst one I have taken this year? Maybe not. When the fog descends there is a great temptation to believe that nature is offering us little to work with. This is rarely true. During a short dusk walk this evening my senses alerted me to 3 different, but related things. 1) I could not see very far. This did not come as a surprise, it has been misty all day. 2) There was a strong smell of burning logs.
