Looking up at the Cape Blanco Lighthouse through the mist from down at the Sixes River. I truly love this sort of weather.

To those devoid of imagination a blank place on the map is a useless waste; to others, the most valuable part.

  1. I too love this kind of mist. Coming from an Arizona childhood, any kind of mist or fog or rain has always seemed magical to me, as if there were a treasure hidden just beyond sight.


    • Well, I didn’t grow up in the desert (Boston?), but I still love any sort of misty scene. I believe in the magical sense of it though some folks seem to find it threatening. Glad you liked it.


    • I have to agree, but I suppose that’s what I love about Oregon. The weather changes often, sometimes from one moment to the next. I find summer to be the most dreary with its endless day of sunshine.


    • Hmmm…. I certainly don’t plan any shots per se, I just take advantage of whatever I stumble upon. How lovely that you enjoy the stuff I choose to share.


  2. Oh, you’ve included two things I love – lighthouses and mist! I may have already mentioned in a past post of mine how delightful it was to hike to a lookout and be shrouded in mist. I loved the feeling of water droplets caressing my face. There was such a mystical atmosphere to the place. Very evocative. I love the little glow of light just detectable coming from the lighthouse through the mist. And the logs/dead tree add interest to the foreground. You have three layers in your photograph. 🙂


    • I also love mist for its moody ambiance. I’ve never seen it as an obstacle to going out for a pleasant stroll. Granted, I was a bit damp by the time I returned to the car, but it certainly wasn’t unpleasant.

    • I actually like this misty sort of weather unless it goes on for too long (tomorrow is supposed to be sunny again). Another advantage is that we had the place completely to ourselves. Not another soul in sight, except for the many birds.
