Red Barn in the Mist, New Paltz, NY

The atmosphere was clear and dry when this exposure began on a bright moonlit night. Once the shot was well underway, a mist rose from the valley to cover the ground with an impenetrable blanket of white, just below the height of the tripod. Above this line of mist, the atmosphere remained crystal clear. The effect of the increased humidity level recorded on film with a uniform soft focus effect, which was very different than how the scene looked to the eye.
