Both are beautiful. The first one is evocative.

I like #1, for the curving hills in the background.

#1 got nice "layers" giving a sense of depth. I like the tones.

I love the first one. The fog lets the imagination work...
Well done, Eric!

Thanks for the comments, folks.

It was an interesting morning. Usually when we spend a few days in the rural western part of the state, we spend most of our daytime hours hiking and photographing. But this time we were staying as guests at a retirement home for two nights, and our daytimes were occupied with sitting in auditoriums for concerts. On the morning we were to check out, we decided to eat a real breakfast (as opposed to the "Continental" one for free in our room.) So we started driving to a recommended local breakfast place in heavy morning fog. The fog was just starting to burn off after we ate, so I got several photos on the way back to the retirement place.

Yes, the scene was quite magical, with the fog just thinning enough to reveal hints of the trees and Holyoke Range of hills behind.

Hi Eric,

The first image is beautiful, poetic and most contemplative...were these images made with your Sony RX10 III?

I got the IV for a trip Iím going on in May. So far Iíve enjoyed it tremendously. The reach on that lens is amazing.

Good ones, Eric. I like the range of brightness in #2.

I echo Rajan's comment. Evocative is much more difficult than beautiful. Both are beautiful, but #1 has story.
 
I'd love to hear more about the RX10, particularly with regard to landscape.

Thanks Scott and both Peters.

As for the RX10, I first got an RX10 (original) for a trip to France a couple of years ago, not wanting to be bothered with a tripod and the bunch of lenses I had for my Canon 5DII. My local camera store suggested the RX10 and let me try it for a day, and I was enthralled. With my Canon, I never used a lens beyond 105mm, so having a sharp Zeiss lens that was sharp from 24mm to 200mm (FF equivalent) was a treat, and finding that shots at 200 were easily hand-holdable was the frosting on the cake. I soon sold off all my Canon equipment.

Then last year I upgraded to the RX10III, which goes to 600mm (FF equiv.), still easily hand-holdable and sharp. That has opened up a whole new world of more distant shots that I never even considered before.

The camera is much lighter than my Canons, largely because of the digital display, which is much better than I had expected (but still not the same as a good optical view finder). And the Sony menu system is often confusing, but those are small tradeoffs, IMHO.

i like much these essential/minimal composition, so rich of mood.  I like these two.
Better from a large format film and dark room development and printing but....so pleasurable also in this way.
All the best!

Thank you, Sandro. Alas, I no longer have the energy to carry around either my old 4x5" or old 8x10" view cameras that I used some forty years ago, and my carbon fibre Gitzo tripod hasn't been used in a couple of years. But I do enjoy seeing your large camera work posted here on LuLa. The latest shots of Mont Blanc are stunning!

+1. It appears you are having more success this year with the fog photos. Great works, Eric.

Thanks, Terry.
I think I've finally learned that the secret is to have a camera with you whenever a nice scene appears.
