Canning River Perth sunrise.  Whenever I wake to a misty morning here in Perth I try to get down to the river. Mist or fog transforms the landscape, highlighting visual elements close to the viewer by fact that it obscures the view of more distant objects. It also transforms the quality of light and depending upon the mist’s density it can have a soft enveloping light. The disappearance of distance adds mystery to the landscape. Mists do not occur frequently in Perth, so I when they do I try to make the most of exploring the environment in a different light. Sunrise Canning River Perth Western Australia 16×20 inch hand printed silver gelatin fibre based print
