Fog Comes Creeping

 Fog
"The fog comes on little cat feet.
It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches
and then moves on."

Eerie and absolutely beautiful.

Guillaume it was very calm that morning and the fog was so gently drifting and flowing, it felt like music.

I have a true story about fog.
I was going home for the weekend on a foggy Friday night riding my motorcycle and noticed that the car in front of me was taking the same route as I was, there were cars behind me and not over taking me.
So where he turned left or right so did I and they too.

All was going well and seemed familiar until he stopped, we all stopped and found ourselves outside of his large manorial type home!
We all had a great laugh as we turned around and drove up his driveway back to the main road.
Whenever someone mentions FOG my memory tumbles back.

Lovely photos, Gwen. They bring me a feeling of such peace and calm... something I really need right now.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Penny and Sharmon, It calms the heart and feels like time stands
still. I love it when this happens.

Beautiful - love the way fog seems to creep from the hollows of the land.

BumbleVee said...

Ohh I love that ....the fog comes on little cat feet....how cute is that? ....

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Seth, I love the way the distance seems measured in tones of light.

Thanks Jane, it entertains too... better than tv.

Vee, just slinking along...

Gwen Buchanan said...

Good story Mel. Fog can do that. sometimes its trance like and we all go with the flow.

Carol Steel said...

What gorgeous ethereal photos...the light and the fog are magic. Thanks for sharing these.

Perfectly lovely. I have a piercingly beautiful childhood memory of walking slowly down a silent lane in very thick fog, noticing that all the spider webs on the hedges were spangled with beads of moisture. Magical!

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Carol, Good to see you! You are right, it was like a magic show.

Hi Rachel, Things around you feel more intimate when there is thick fog all around.. we seem to focus on them. Those spider webs must have looked like jewels.

These are excellent captures, Gwen. I particularly like the third from the end, with its distinct layers. I've tried capturing the mist like this myself, but not with the success you've had here.

Wow...

Tammie Lee said...

my goodness, pink fog
inspires joy in my heart
so lovely
thank you ~

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Janice, Nature teases me all the time. sometimes she acts so swiftly I don't have time to find the camera... and then sometimes she cooperates.

Wildside, it was one of those singular mornings.

Thank you Tammie Lee. I don't think I could ever tire of watching the fog play with the land.

What a stunning view and such wonderful textural layers.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thank you Alex, The layers through the fog are truly mesmerizing... it feels like a mystery
