Pic of the Week: Autumnal Tree Trunks by David Hendry

Thick fogs are not that common in Glasgow but when they do come they transform everything we see.

Everyday things look completely different: colours become muted and everything in the distance becomes grey.

I was struck by this row of lime trees in Linn Park.

There were very few leaves remaining but with the fog everything in the distance had lost its colour. I decided to emphasise this by removing the colour from the more distant elements to concentrate the eye on the foreground leaves.

It was quite dull so I had to increase the ISO to 400 to minimise camera shake.

Other details: Sony Alpha 100, 1/60 sec at f/3.5, focal length 35mm.
