Winter Fog No. 1

A blizzard buried Cleveland the first week of January 2008. Towards the end of the week, however, a warm front moved in creating dense fog and naturally diffused light. I drove into the country shortly after 6:00 a.m. looking for a good subject. As I hiked through a random field, this cluster of trees appeared shrouded in the fog. The sun was still below the horizon when I captured this scene using a tripod almost entirely buried in snow.

I’m producing this image as a 16″x24″, limited edition of 10, using archival pigment based inks (Epson Ultrachrome) on 310 gsm (heavy gauge) archival water color papers.  The combination of paper and inks have a projected longevity of 200-300 years (Wilhelm Research Institute).
