Foggy Moods

Fog shrouded canopy overhead.

Perfect miniature.

Spider Webs outlined in fog droplets festooning every branch, bush and every rough surface.

I could see the Marine Fog rolling in this morning as I watched the sun come up.  The fog pretty much socked in everything for the morning.

There is something fey about fog.  It quiets sounds, softens edges and mutes colours.  Fog shifts, first hiding and then revealing objects drifting in and out of view.  Fog adds mystery to the everyday prosaic views that surround us and fog adds magic to objects seldom viewed.

We walked at Hemer Park this morning.  There were swans on the Marsh side.  We counted 7 at least, drifting in and out of the fog.

There were spider webs everywhere, festooning almost every surface and every web dripping with water.  On the Holden Lake side there were bushes just coming into bud – bright green against the red-brown branches.

Green buds - waiting for more sunlight - waiting to burst into leaf.

Clear blue outlines the trees.

Yesterdays walk was quite different.  There was no fog.  There was Sun.

Cedar boughs created lace against the blue skies.

The Sun poured down light.  Illuminating and outlining every surface as we walked around Morrell Sanctuary.  Branches were green and bright.  Cedar boughs created lace patterns against the sky.

Both walks were beautiful.

Happy Viewing

    Great blog if you have the time could you check out a few of mine 😊 also if there’s anything you’d like me to write about just ask !x

  2. Lovely pictures. Even though I live in london, I am on the edge of Tooting Bec Common – 5 square miles of green space on my doorstep. On the section of the common nearest my house there is an avenue of oak trees. Occasionally there will be a layer of mist sitting along the avenue, covering the bottom third of the tree trunks. I always wish I had a camera with me when i see it, so i should take a leaf out of your book & carry one at all times! Thank you for the pics.

    • Hi Carol,
      Thank-you for the comment on the pictures. It sounds like you live in a place where taking your camera would be a great habit to start! Once it is habit – you seldom miss out on any shot that looks interesting. It takes a while to make the camera a habit. Writing the blog made it easier for me.

      Have a great day!

    you should have been my daughter.. photography and knitting, sewing is my passion, i design childrens dresses, and knitwear as well, have you ever used a knitting machine?
    just curious.. i love to handknit but i have a few great knitting machines, and enjoy this as well, it is great to watch how quickly and evenly the knitting is done, and their are many options that can be used.. karen allen the actress you may know has a knitting shop and uses a vintage electronic brother machine to make sweaters.. something so therapeutic about knitting, it is beautiful where you live, i live very close to casey key a couple of miles in venice florida south of sarasota,
    nice beaches etc. i spent a couple of hours last nite just reading all of your posts..

    i am an RN but i would love to have a shop that teaches all of these skills to children like an after school program.. beautiful work you do.. thank you for taking the time to post the photos and story of your life.. good luck in everything you do … lisa faith

    • Hello Lisa,
      What a lovely letter. Thank-you for taking the time to read my blog and then write to me!
      I have never worked with a knitting machine. I love the feel of the needles and yarn in my hands too much to have ever branched out.
      It is beautiful here, but Florida is beautiful as well. Like here you are mostly surrounded by Ocean.
      Your ideas for teaching children sound wonderful – it good to have dreams.
      Thank-you again for the good wishes and for you the same!
      Happy Knitting
