great mglisto, you managed to immortalize the interesting view in your photograph, he appeals to me.

Lovely misty image, David. It's akin to some scenes in Lord of the Rings. Very lovely mood w/ good framing/cropping. TFS,
Freddie :)

Hi David.
Wonderful and well presented. Amazing view and looks fantastic. Like from diffrent world.
Well done my friend!
Janek Kloss

you definately are the master of fog David! nice shot, LOVE the deep gorge shot here! Very nice softness and tones! I like this one!

Magical. I must admit when I looked at the thumbnail it looked a bit dull. But the photo is stunning. The sharpness of the rocks in the mist and the subtle green colours are amazing. You stay the master of foggy scenes. Another brilliant quote.

Many thanks for your words, picture and hope.
Nice atmosphere, great shot, David.
TFS bye Aga

Gee this pings me off, I clicked add and it wiped it instead, hasnt done that in a while. Oh well, welcome back (again)oh 'foggy hero.'Beautiful photo, not many places can boast such a lovley tourist walk in reach of anyone. Most places like this seem to be in 4WD country, I was going to say it needs to be promoted more but maybe not. So many places start out as beautiful to visit and once the tourists find them someone comes along and provides this that and the other thing that they(and their pockets) convince councils the tourists want and ruin what they found as a great spot. Keep walking David,it is safer for the environment to have your beautiful photos. (fog or no fog)TFS

David fantastic
But I think next time you should use diafragma 54 and let lens open for 3 days. What will happen, I dont know!
( only we 2 understand this joke, right ? )
Good work David, also your proverb note I like! You and the Princess a super weekend! Bye

I absolutely LOVE this one David!
It's just my kind of weather, my kind of landscape and my kind of hike...
Great atmosphere!
This lonely figure in red shows just how large the gorge is....


Hi David,
Wonderful image! I love the fog, and the reflections in the water are lovely and soft and muted. Don't realise how big it is till you see the people standing at the side on the boardwalk. Must be a lovely place to visit, one day I would really like to get to Tassie! Beautiful! Well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

Amazing view,David! All the adventures are possible in a so misty place! Very good exposure and fine details in spite of mist. I envy your skill to return so complex atmospheres. Bravo and have a great weekend! Annie

Another very moody, misty scene David. And what a scene it is - well done on the composition, we follow the water and want to see around the misty corner. Good one!

Hi David,
I took time off from settling the house to be welcome by an other of your wonderful fog photo. I like the peaceful mood it produced by the soft colors. Great sharpness. Very nice proverb. TFS

Hi David,
According the map of Google Earth this appears in the "middle" of the city, if only looking at the photo I have the impression it's in the middle of "nowhere". Great misty shot, I learn a lot from you and these are my favorite images. Great mood, fine exposed.
TFS my friend!

:) Later...

Bonsoir David,
Une belle photo et un bel effet de brume, comme le dit quelques Trekers you are the master of Fog picture and this one is very sharp and clear, An escellent POV. and beautiful colors. Have a nice day..

Hi David,
Another mystical photo of fog, I am waiting for either a Viking ship or perhaps the Loch Ness monster to come into view. Great handling of difficult lighting, wonderful colors and clarity...but perhaps you should follow John's advice...I think 24 hours would have been long enough exposure! Thanks for sharing,

Simply superb, my friend! This has the feel and atmosphere of a sumi brush on rice paper painting. I think we can look forward to quite some stunning pictures over the next little while, during your winter season!
PS: Now this is a candidate for posterizing! A sure fave!

bonjour David
splendide image avec un bel effet de brume..
Tu es le roi de TL pour se genre de photo !!!
magnifique David

The fog master strikes again !!!


Hi David. Another classic foggy composition. The rugged rocks and the gentle flow of water are a highly effective combination. Excellent ambiance. Murray.

Hi David.
I love Cataract gorge. I love the gardens there with the peacocks roaming around. You captured it on an amazingly moody day. Great POV. Well done.
Regards from Romania. Steve.

I'm new here at trek lens, but i've seen this picture from over my dad's (pranab) shoulder. The moment i got an account i knew i had to give this one a point! the mist gives it a almost mystical look, making it a bit fuzzy, but still maintaining good details.
well done!

Scary shot! I love the fog and the layers of trees in the bg
well done,

Well done, nothing more to say.

Hello David

Lovely landscape and very well captured and presented.

Hello David!

Missed your alst shots ( even if you do not publish often these days ! ) Pretty cool landscape. Thanks to the trekkers at the right giving the true scale of the place.

hi, david
fine walk, really fine. on the road to the right, I guess and these waves of fog give the image a touch of tranquility. fine scenery and feeling.
wish your devils to be alright, I saw a few documentaries but I didn't know the situation is so bad.
all the best to all of you down there
carpe diem - every step the passage. yes, you're right.

An atmosphere somewhat eerie, mysterious and rather cool. I guess the subdued darkish colours give me that feeling. Good composition with the individual slopes appealing through the fog in different layers. Well done! - Cordelia :) :)
