And this is how the last day of my trip to Campos do Jordão started, with a visibility of just a few meters ahead. The fog is quite frequent in this mountainous region, as shown in the photo, taken from the reception of the hotel where I stayed.

Hello Alexandre,
A good and moody photo of this foggy morning. The trees at right slowly disappear into the dense mist. The composition is well-balanced with the tree at left too. The small lamppost are also a nice detail.

Hello Alexandre,
Maybe it's not so fun to experience this kind of weather, but the fog really created a marvellous atmosphere and gave you a chance for a very good photo. The careful exposure has captured all the nuances of the features half hidden from view. The large tree and the nearest lamppost are among the few elements that remain perfectly sharp and clear.
Kind regards,

Beautiful park, curious view.
Good frame, colors and light.
Fog add flavor to this picture.

Bonjour, cher Alexandre,
j'aime beaucoup l'ambiance qui se dégage à travers cette composition.
Tout devient mystérieux dans la brume.
Bel effet général.

Hi Alexandre,
Interesting mood with this foggy weather and these silhouette of the tree, good effect for the perspective with this road even the Bg is in the fog, tfs.

Ola Alexandre,
nice this view of this foggy scenery with the vision to be confined indeed in a few metres.I like this beautiful environment with the created atmosphere to be so well presented.


Fog is always difficult on photography, Alexandre.
Though, you managed quite a good view of the place and special ambiance. Details like the lamp-posts and trees.
Bom fim de semana,

Olá Alexandre

Foto admirável de um tempo outonal com áurea de mistério. Bom enquadramento e bons detalhes.
Imagem pouco habitual do Brasil mais conhecido pelas cidades e pelas praias, mas de uma beleza ímpar.
Bom trabalho.

Hello Alexandre,
Very nice capture of this foggy scenery with the taste of a b&w photography.
TFS and best regards

aqui o nevoeiro é mais comum no outono, mas geralmente fica restrito às partes mais baixas do terreno, como aconteceu hoje.bela vista com a vegetação e algumas araucárias dando uma atmosfera local.

Hello Alexandre,

For some reason this reminds me of the university campus I used to live at in China. It was often foggy like this and difficult to find, when there where 7 colleges all in the same area and all with the same type of streets trees and entrances. I eventually had an idea for taxi drivers. I kept a plastic bag from the Uni restaurant and grocery store, with the name and the address written in Chinese, and just pointed to it. Worked like a charm. No more getting lost in the fog!

Hi Alex
A foggy almost a monotone ambience and it takes a good eye to see photo opportunities like that which is so precisely clicked. Excellent shot
Best wishes

Ciao Alexandre, fascinating misty view, magic atmosphere, splendid light and excellent perspective, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Ola Alexandre
La brume donne un coté mystérieux aux paysage, bel effet de perspective de la route, un instant particulier bien capturer
Bonne soirée

Hola Alexandre.
Me gustan estas fotos de niebla que tienen un toque de misterio, las farolas, los arboles que se silutean mas o menos, dan un bonito efecto.
La imagen tiene un efecto invernal.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y nitidez, bajo estas condiciones.
Bien hecho. Mis felicitaciones.
Todo lo mejor y que tengas un buen comienzo de semana.

Hi Alexandre,

The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the trees and of the lamposts. The fog is giving a special mood to the scene. Have a nice day.


Hi Alexandre
the only thing missing here is some spooky creepy person walking by, maybe a woman in some white dress. that would be awesome haha...but not exactly in your control is it.

We can't always control the weather, and we have to make do with what is given to us, thats what you did here. At least you got a fun and interesting photo out of it, nothing wrong with that. Love the light post in the fg. cheers

Interesantan pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepo mesto za setnju.
Sve najbolje.

Hello Alexandre,

I know we long to have good light when photographing but, sometimes, it is just as pleasing to have weather conditions which bring a strong atmosphere, or mood, with them.
The dull atmosphere, shown here, could also be symbolic of your mood as it was the last day of your holiday!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Bela mostra da neblina, qual era a temperatura nos termômetros, uns 15 graus negativos? A árvore à esquerda ficou muito boa, bela foto.

Hola Alexandre,

una interesante imagen con una atmoósfera totalmente otoñal, me gusta esa niebla espesa con la silueta de los árboles, bien visto,

Un saludo,


Hello Alexandre
A surprising photo from Brazil. Such dense fog is not something you think of for Brazil. More for the Faroes or Iceland where I could sometimes see even less of the landscape in which I was driving 2 weeks ago.
I like this kind of moody photos.
Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Hello dear Alexandre and have a nice time
and a happy new day
minimalistic photo taken in an
artistic way lost in the fog
according to your useful notes the
fog is quite frequent in this region

Olá Alexandre, ótima foto desta bela e interessante composição com a neblina, muito bem capturada nesta bela imagem, com boa nitidez, luz, cor e qualidade. Excelente e interessante trabalho feito com perfeição, meus parabéns meu amigo. Obrigado por compartilhar este belo trabalho.

Boa noite e feliz resto da semana.
Felicidades do sul da Espanha.

Ola Alexandre I rather have the impression you had an overnight stay in Dracula's castle, given the extinguished candelabras on either side of the aisle and the unearthly dense fog!! It is a thrilling view, for shure, and I lke it very much. Abraços.

Hello Alexandre,
The fog adds mystery to the scene, nicely rendered! 👍

Olá Alexandre,
Gosto muito do "ambiente" desta imagem.... misty!
