One morning this summer, while everyone slept late, I went out with my Panasonic Lumix GX8 to fish for photographs during my travels this summer to Blue Hill, Maine. The fog had rolled in with the tide, and before it burned off as the sun came up, I made some photographs trying to capture the ruggedness, the isolation and quiet of the landscape.

I opted for black and white, even though the waves had brought in a yellow-gold seaweed because the starkness suited the monochromatic format. Afterwards, I added some softening to blur the leaves on the trees and add some more mystery to the scene.
