SkyWatch - Fog


Early morning, I wondered why the sun was still abed,
one look out the window and I levitated out of bed snatching
at my camera 


the paddocks softened by the scattered light


down the hill, the houses were fading away


but up the hill, the blanket of grey grew ever thicker


until it gobbled up the trees and shrubs and ground and 
indiscriminately hid the sheep and kangaroos . . .

as well of course, the sky.

  1. So moody, so lovely, so pretty! Skies like this still inspire, and I would add in a cup of tea and a scone and just watch the gray rise;') Hugs to you my friend!

  3. Fantastische Stimmung, auch hier in Riehen bei Basel sah es heute so aus. Herbststimmung pur, obwohl hier eigentlich Frühling sein sollte.

    Vielen herzlichen Dank liebe Arija für all Deinen wunderbaren Kommentare zu meinen Fotografien...

    Umarmung und Grüsse aus der Schweiz

    Love fog, as long as I don't have to live through months of high fog hiding the sun.

    Big hug,

  8. Great shots, fog and mist can be spooky sometimes, I remember going for a walk one morning a while back and the fog was so thick I could hardly see.

  15. The way you resented this series and spoke of them, I felt I was there with you discussing the changes. Lovely minute by minute replay. genie

  16. Behind the mists there is a whole unknown world, which makes you wish to see and yet ...I like it to be hidden for a bit longer.
    Thanks for your comment. Yes Beatrix was tired after her 33 years reign. She still bears the grieve about her second son who had this skiing accident for more than a year ago. He is in a hospital in London.He lives, but is in coma. It's terrible.

  20. Oh........fog is my favorite weather phenomenon. It's so beautiful and so very 'quiet'.

  21. You do! You make my heart sing. You make it hit all the high notes, can't you hear it??? Ah, Arija, how I adore you. I would even share my chocolate and tea with you, and that's saying a lot. :)

    I love fog. So mysterious. Sometimes I love fog even more than sunshine. It leaves more to the imagination. A while ago, I read about a study that said being out in nature elevates your mood, especially for women. Well, coming here and seeing all the nature you've captured makes me feel comforted and serene. Happy. xoxo

  24. We have not had a foggy morning yet - must be too dry.

    Snow trips are planned - but there is none on the ground at present.

    Cheers
