Blacks Harbour is a village in New Brunswick with the population of less than 1000. It is located on the coast of Bay of Fundy. This is the place of the terminal from where the year-round ferry leaves for Grand Manan Island.
Every time I travel to Grand Manan Island, I arrive at Blacks Harbour very early in the morning to make sure I get to the very first ferry of the day. And while I am waiting in the line I have 30-40min to walk around the harbour and take a few early morning foggy shots.
Shooting & Processing
It was not necessary to bracket my shots because the fog served as the giant defuser making the overall lighting less dynamic. But, I took 3 bracketed shots (-1, 0, +1) anyway as an insurance.
I used single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in Introduction to Lightroom Rapid Editing System.
The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Drought (1, 8, 34)

- Topaz DeNoise was used to reduce digital noise (sky, water).
- Topaz Clarity was used to enhance details, boost colors and reduce haziness of the fog.
