The feature photo above is just down the road a bit from the shots below. As you can see, lots of tumbleweeds and barbed wire.
I was on Alberta’s Hwy. 533 between Nanton and the Cowboy Trail, which is Hwy. 22. The fog was so bad I finally pulled off on a side road to wait it out. But it persisted. So after two hours I headed home.
Occasionally the fog cleared enough to give me these photos. And since there was no wind, I was able to use slow shutter speeds for maximum depth of field.
Below is a 21 March 2018 update:
A bit of trivia: I recently sold the Nikon 105 mm f/2.8 macro that I used to take these four photos. I also sold all my other Nikon lenses, including my Nikon AF-S 70-200 mm f/2.8 FL VR, which I absolutely loved and really miss.
I’m trying to do everything now with a Zeiss 55 mm lens, mostly at f/1.4. And I no longer stop down beyond f/6.3. I’ve been fixated on micro contrast for the last while.
The featured photo at the top was taken with a Nikon 50 mm, so maybe the switch to the 55 mm won’t be that onerous. Although, without my 70-200 it’s going to be a major, major adjustment.
I’ll have to train my brain to start seeing at 55 mm instead of 70-200.
