Caddo Lake Fog by Glenn Rudd

March 2023 - Caddo Lake Fog

About the Image(s)

This image titled "Caddo Lake Fog" was taken in October 2021 at Caddo Lake in east Texas. This body of water is an enormous cypress swamp and one of the few natural lakes in Texas. During our 4 day workshop we were out on the water each day at 5 AM. The main attractions are the colorful cypress trees wrapped in the early morning fog as well as the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Technical: 1/400 sec, f/5.6, ISO1250, 70mm

Hi Glen, Absolutely beautiful and if mine it would go up on the wall. The highlight of the image is the orange leaves of the cypress. The surrounding foggy background emphasizes the main subject nicely. An excellent composition with the tree being placed perfectly in the frame, being off to the right, and its reflection in the water.   Posted: 03/02/2023 07:43:53

Well done. I can think of no improvements. I'll have to add this destination to my bucket list. Who did you go with?

This is a lovely image. The only suggestion I have would be to tone down the bright spots in the background so that they don't draw the eye to them.   Posted: 03/09/2023 12:18:42

Very different tree in the swamp and with the fog it makes it unique. Congrats on a really great photo!   Posted: 03/12/2023 19:15:18

Stunning work!

Noting like getting out early to catch the worm, as it were. Your dedication paid off.

I really like the atmosphere you have captured.That mist skimming the surface is superb. Right time , right place with this one. The time of year has given some great colour to the scene.   Posted: 03/15/2023 08:09:46

This is a stunning image! I love the misty fog and the sharpness of the cypress. Very well done! I live in Texas and just looked up the location. Looks like it's close to Shreveport, La. I'll have to make the trip some time! Great work, Glenn!   Posted: 03/15/2023 11:48:52
