Photo Walks with Mike Hannisian - Saturday, January 12th, 2013

As I drove to Cape May Point SP for our weekly Saturday Photo Walk, it started foggy and then cleared to reveal a lovely sunrise. However, as I crossed the canal, the fog reappeared and stayed with us through the walk. True, fog is not always conducive to wildlife photography, but can be nice for shooting other subjects such as last year's cattail seed heads and Phragmites plumes. Likewise, the soft light created by fog can make portrait images more appealing by eliminating shadows, as was the case with a Hermit Thrush this week. We will have to wait until next week to see what the weather will bring for our next Saturday Photo Walk, but I suspect it will present us with some nice photographic options. Leader: Mike Hannisian.
