Fog’s moody and ethereal beauty is a photographer’s dream! As it floats and changes form, it offers unique and unpredictable results, transforming a landscape within moments. It offers the opportunity to capture one of a kind imagery, as well as offering an otherworldly, mysterious quality and dreamy feeling to your photos. Fog scatters sunlight and acts as a natural light diffuser, casting a soft illumination. There are countless spots to capture your own magical, mystical and foggy photographic masterpiece! Here are a few suggestions for places to capture truly stunning foggy photos:
Highway Rest Stops – HCC has an incredible network of scenic highways. These routes are flanked by towering mountains that, at this time of year, host stunning fog! Just be sure to use designated pull-outs and rest stops to make sure that you are parked safely before capturing the views. We recommend checking out these highways:
- Highway 1 – Into the Fraser Canyon
- Highway 3 – Towards Manning Park
- Highway 5 – Up the Coquihalla and into the Cascade Mountains
- Highway 7 – Along Scenic Route 7
The Town of Hope – Even from the sidewalks of Downtown, you’ll spot incredible foggy views among the towering mountains that surround our town! Another great spot for fog viewing is Centennial Park, which puts you right between Downtown Hope and the Fraser River.
Lady Franklin’s Rock – Found in Yale, the Lady Franklin’s Rock sits in the Fraser River and the viewpoint is neighboured by a 180-degree view of massive mountains!
Alexandra Bridge – this grand, historical bridge spans the mighty Fraser River, with fog silently rising and enveloping the surrounding mountains and forest, making for dramatic, Insta-worthy snaps.
