Fog, Acadia National Park

Photograph by ABM Musa, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

Fog-covered islands during sunrise, seen from the top of Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park, Maine

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The undulating fog bank, recalling both air and water, is what first caught my eye. My favorite part of looking at this photograph, though, is making out the faint detail of the shoreline underneath. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor

Mainly the credit goes to photographer ABM Musa perfect point of view and timing is superb to shout that picture(sunrise) and fog also helps him.

Great atmosphere, I must say. The photograph has been executed really well, using a slow exposure, perhaps and that gives it a painterly quality. Also the presence of both cooler and warmer tones gives it a nice color mix and pleasant feel. Thanks for sharing this.

This still highlights the very distinct characteristics of the Maine shoreline, but does so in a very unique way. Jaw dropping...

Absolutely stunning!!! This reads more like a painting than a photograph. Memorized.

Not a photographer myself so I can only magine the effort and equipment and knowledge that was required to capture this photo.   'Well done' to the photographer.

@David Hutchinson Thanks for your comment! The equipment was in fact very basic. It was a beginner level Nikon D3000 with 55-200 kit lens. However, I was lucky to have great light of the sunrise and nice fog.
