I used the pano mode on the iPhone to shoot this little band of fog in a meadow along Airport Road in Roanoke at dusk. It was a grab, but I still like it. August 30, 2017. iPhone 6+, 1/125 sec, f/2.2, ISO 500, 4.2 mm (29mm in 35). ©2017
I’ve never been a more monochromatic environment; I couldn’t have pulled a drop of color out of this scene if I’d tried. This photograph, made May 2, 2016, was shot in color and is reproduced here in color with minimal processing. These are oyster beds in Chincoteague Bay off the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Nikon D5200, Nikkor 18-200mm lens, RAW, aperture mode, EV 0, VR on, ISO 800, 1/3000th sec., f/9.5, 24mm (36mm DX).

Nikon D500 in aperture mode, Nikkor 18-200mm lens, VR on, ISO 1600, RAW, EV -1, f5.6, 1/30th sec., 200mm (300mm DX)
