Much of November is spent living in constant fog… but it’s not so bad if you can get above the murky soup!
This is the view (NE) arriving at work this morning at 8am. Kilchzimmer is a 600m walk down the Mt. behind where I’m standing. It’s no surprise this ridge is a popular spot for photographers to congregate in the early morning when the weather conditions are right.

I’m always ready with the tripod stored in the car (except today!).  The tripod would have allowed me to capture long exposures of the cloud flow over the mt..  …next time.  The odd cloud on the right is from a nearby nuclear plant.

Comparing this to the previous image, you will notice how a telephoto lens will compress (flatten) depth, enlarging subjects in the background.  In the previous image, the distant farm (right side) is much smaller in relation to the yellow trees in the foreground.
