I took this as the early morning mist began to rise. I was attracted to the very simple and subdued colour palette of the landscape, and to the curve of the river and the flood bank.

I love how when I visit this image I find myself stopping at the tree, then quite naturally I want to wander on down the path (your curved leading line). Once I've wandered a bit I discover that I really want to hang out and spend more time at the tree - It's the only place I can find company in this journey.

Great job of putting this comp together and utilizing the elements.

The tree looks as though it's contemplating suicide.

How pretty! I love fog photos so much! They give you such a dreamy "other world" feel. Great photo!
