Wandering around the dam in a fog

Our local whisky shop has a musicians’ night once a month, lots of craic. It helps that they sell off the remains of their tasting stock at knock-down prices, last night I had a dram of Kilchoman finished in tequila casks, a snip at £6.00 a pop.

Anyway, it snowed overnight and as the day warmed this became a fog (not the effect of the whisky). This is one of the shots.

“Nice situation, but not the ideal conditions to play with”, said the seagull.

Here is my interpretation with DT 4.3.
Now I’m going to enjoy a good 12 year old wisky… … :tropical_drink:

Funnily enough I initially read the thread title as “wandering around in the dam fog” :laughing:

Oh, crack as slang is something completely different in the US…

I had an idea it might be - as an Aussie with some UK background I think I’ve read/heard of both…

Nice spot, I had missed the seagull completely, I did get him in another shot:

Amongst the other whiskies that were available during the session was this one, note the distillation year. It was bottled in 2008.

The photograph really emphasises the stillness of the scene!
In GIMP. Defined the black point and a little increase in saturation.

Yep, it was a flat calm until the fog burnt off.

I wanted to bring out the mid-tone background as much as possible.
