After spending the morning doing some landscape photography in the Niagara area I hit some dense fog on my way home. Shooting landscape photos under foggy conditions is one of my favourite things to do so I couldn’t resist getting off the highway and finding a good spot to capture some images. I ended up at Charles Daley Park which is located on Lake Ontario in the town of Lincoln. What follows is a selection of images of this lakeside park in fog.

Upon arriving I headed down towards the east end of the beach. This is a more natural section of the park with a number of trees along the lake front as well as a small lagoon.
I had my three Nikon 1 V2’s with me, each fitted with a different lens (6.7-13 mm, 10-100 mm PD, CX 70-300 mm). All of the images in this article were taken with either the 6.7-13 mm or the 10-100 mm PD.
My plan was to take a few sample images of the trees along the beach front, then head off to the lagoon area.
I started on the north side of the lagoon, capturing some images of smaller plants and the occasional log along the edge of the lagoon.
The fog was thick enough that it blocked out the highway and road traffic that are normally visible from this vantage point.
I then left the beach and headed off to the western edge of the lagoon which features a large willow tree which I thought may make for some interesting images. I did pause to look back and take one final image of the beach entrance.
The willow did not disappoint. Its leaves were starting to turn colour and gave the tree some nice, bright yellow highlights.
I took a few different images, changing my shooting angles and perspectives.
On my way back to my car I grabbed a few more quick images, then headed off home…or so I thought…
As I crossed a bridge on the service road another scene at the park’s west end caught my eye. So, a U-turn was in order and I made time for one, last capture.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable and relaxing way to spend an hour at Charles Daley Park.
