Sunlight and Fog



Grey mist drifts from water to land, blurring the edges of trees, grasses and buildings. It creeps softly down, down, down, blurring first the edges of the hills, then the dark evergreens and the grasses. A few persistent blades of sunlight turn the cattails in the bog to gold.
 

Mid-afternoon, while walking, we watched wisps of grey with patches of sunlight turn to solid grey. To know that the sun is shining beyond, illuminating through the fog, is beauty.

  3. Your description of moving mass of grey is poetic, Lorrie, and I can picture it creeping along. Do you know the Carl Sandburg poem, entitled "Fog"?

    The second photo is stunning with the greens in the background, the golden tones and the striking red branches, all (as you said) illuminated through the fog. What a beautiful walk it must have been.

  12. Hi Lorrie,

    I LOVE this contrast of gray, foggy sky with the glow of the gold grasses and cattails! So pretty! The mallards are lovely and colorful amidst the winter colors, as well.

    Have a great day, Lorrie!

    Hugs,

  13. Beautiful! It looks like you had a wonderful walk.

    We occasionally get foggy low clouds here, and it leaves the forest covered in glittering frost.

    Stay warm & happy, Lorrie!

  22. Lorrie, your beautiful images today of this foggy landscape closely resemble my own surroundings! Lovely contrast of the gold grasses and the grey gathering of mist and fog above, smudging the lines between them. Enjoyed your quiet narrative, so fitting for the mood of your photos.

  23. Great walk when you can capture lovely pictures like these along the way. The mist looks like it is making. Its way. Sometimes the mist is so heavy in PEI you can feel it fall on you as you walk.
