I've been so busy I have deleted weeks and weeks of ArtsEdNet Digest -
but now I'd like to get back in touch and I have a question.

I did a lot of hiking and some mountain climbing over the summer
(Adirondack Mountains in northern New York) and while I took my
watercolors with me and did some paintings from the summits, I also took
photos. They were to serve as reference photos as I finished or started
new landscape paintings. I have a UV filter on my telephoto lens, but
was very disappointed to discover that haze obscured much more in my
photos than what I saw with the naked eye. In other words, I remember
seeing the distance much more clearly than my photos showed. Is there a
better filter I should be using? This happened even on relatively clear
days, but was much worse on a hot, humid day.
