View Full Version : OT: Misty Waters

Any way to predict if local ponds will have that misty look that's so beautiful? Is it hot day prior and cool morning or?!? I'd prefer not to think of myself as lazy but getting up early enough to be present before dawn and then not having the shot just sounds like so much of a waste of time.

check early morning fog reports?

To be a photographer you shouldn't feel too bad about 'wasting time' or not getting the shot as you would like. I think cold days would be the one but again it depends on many factors.

Learn Photoshop.
You will be able to have mist when ever you want after that from the comfort of your PC desk. :D:D:D

Does your weather person give humidity figures?

After a hot humid day or after rain followed by the air temperature dropping should leave the air supersatured and therefore foggy. So I'd of guess cold morning (or night) after a hot humid day or after rain but I've never tried it out.

I got a picture of mist over the Chattahoochie.... I had to get up before the crack of dawn to get it though. It has mist every morning but the sun burns it off quickly.
