a hint of fog

How to cool it way down in the summertime…..fog-1631Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us. 
Neil deGrasse Tyson

  1. So mystical…it’s like time is standing still waiting for two white horses carrying lovers setting to meet in the fog to express their undying love. I always enjoy your seascapes Gunta!


    • The Oregon coast has a lot of those huge rocks scattered in along the shoreline. They call them ‘sea stacks’ around here. I suppose that’s as good a name as any. 😀


  2. Oh how I love the fog…love to look at it, love to walk through it! This photo is so very interesting Gunta, each sea stack becoming more visible as your eye nears the shore, each stack more muted going out to sea.


    • Thanks, LuAnn. So much seems to depend on the thickness of the fog. This one was just right to suggest depth, with that hint of sunlight showing through it.


  3. I wish I could step right into that scene. It looks so peaceful and cool. Beautiful image with a beautiful quote. Thank you for the cool down on this hot and steamy morning. 🙂 We have fog here, too, but it’s more of a sauna type of fog.


  4. Beautiful photo, Gunta. I like the quote. I got to meet Tyson in person, a long, long time ago when he had come out with his first book. I followed him for a number of years when I used to get Natural History magazine and read his column. He’s a great writer.
