“In his writing as well as his photography, Langford raises a fascinating question: while the tired old cliché of grayness and unseeingness comes quickly to mind in the archetypes of fog, Langford dissents, believing that in fog certain colors leap out with greater zest.” – Rick Bass
The pages of Fog at Hillingdon have 120 photographs. Each photograph taken by David K. Langford richly captures different aspects fog on landscape, flora and fauna, natural resources, and daily ranching life.
“I have spent a lot of my time behind the camera photographing wildlife and livestock. I did not think anything could be more challenging than a wily white-tailed buck or a cantankerous prize-winning bull, but then I set out to capture fog. Fog is fickle. There one minute and gone the next. Fog is unpredictable. Weather forecasts mean nothing. But to this photographer, fog alters landscapes, raising them to a different level of beauty. Being an eyewitness to this transition made all the early mornings and false starts completely worthwhile.” – David K. Langford
Almost every photograph in this book was taken using a Canon EOS 5D Mark III body with a Canon EF 28–300mm f/3.5–5.6L IS USM lens. Occasionally, to bring distant scenes closer, I used a Canon EOS 7D body with a Canon EF 100–400mm f4.5–5.6L IS USM. Three photographs were taken with a Sony a7R body and a Sony FE 70–200mm F4 GSS Full-frame E-mount Zoom Lens. For a couple of images, a 77mm Heliopan polarizing filter was used. Almost all ASA settings were at 200, with a very few at 400 or 800.
None of these images has been enhanced beyond the capabilities of a traditional, film photography darkroom.

- After each print meets his approval, it will be titled, signed and numbered, also by David personally. If the print is of exceptional quality, it will receive artist proof status.
