Red Leaves in the Fog

One more picture from last week's walk around the Cummings Center Pond.  The fog rolled in as we walked until we could no longer see the other side of the pond.  I liked the way the red leaves looked in the fog, so I took this picture.  I struggled to edit this because the fog took away many of the cues that are useful in figuring out if the orientation is straight.  The result is that the scene becomes surreal.  Is one of the trees leaning or is that a reflection?  It was only by looking at the little ripples in the water that I could tell that this image was straight.  Fog makes you look harder and it makes you think.  (Maybe that's why there is so much fog in mystery novels.)
