Roy Ramsay of Outdoor Photography Canada and I planned a late evening of astrophotography tonight but we were to be thwarted by the weather. It was clear skies at my place but as I headed into Brampton to pick up Roy a light fog seemed to have settled in. In the car we discussed whether this fog would roll out or if we could find a spot that wasn’t affected by it. We were headed towards the Niagara region and it looked as though the fog was not going to let go. Rather it just got thicker and thicker as we headed south. Deciding that this would be a bust for star photography we decided that we would work with the fog instead.
Off the highway down by Jordan, Ontario there is a ship that is scuttled very close to shore so we thought that would be a fun place to stop and get some shots. Here is the full view of ship surrounded by thick fog in the background. The orange/brown glow is from the city lights and the breaker wall.
We tried out many different angles, along with playing with some light painting techniques. Below is a close up and processed in black and white.
We had a great time playing with the challenges of the fog. Hopefully next time we’ll get out and see the stars.
