above the mist…

fog-2043the base of Humbug Mountain peeking out from the right edge…

fog-2031it just kept getting better…

fog-2023the Pacific Ocean blanketed by fog…


The day is done, and the darkness
Falls from the wings of Night,
As a feather is wafted downward
From an eagle in his flight.

I see the lights of the village
Gleam through the rain and the mist,
And a feeling of sadness comes o’er me
That my soul cannot resist:

A feeling of sadness and longing,
That is not akin to pain,
And resembles sorrow only
As the mist resembles the rain.

Come, read to me some poem,
Some simple and heartfelt lay,
That shall soothe this restless feeling,
And banish the thoughts of day.
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,Β The Belfry of Bruges and Other Poems

    • Don’t know what to tell you, but popping online is the best way I know of to take a break from the sorting, discarding and packing (not to mention all those wonderful drives along the coast). It’s getting quite chaotic here and the pile going to the Hospice Thrift Shop keeps growing and growing…. πŸ˜€ It’s getting quite exciting and I’m feeling liberated!!!


    • Thanks, Chilli! It’s really good to be getting out with the camera again. Just three weeks left before I’m finally moved down to the vicinity of these shots. What fun that will be! Good to hear from you!


    • Thanks, for the enthusiastic comment! Very much appreciated. It was truly a magical night. Too bad for the folks who hung around the beach in town hoping to see the fire works. I heard nothing was to be seen… just the booms. The next day driving north was pretty magical, too. Just have to find a few moments to post. It’s getting a tad frantic as the move gets closer. O_o


    • Thanks, Andrew. It was truly a magical night with the mist behaving perfectly. All too often the fog tends to blot out the sun, the sky… not the best situation for photography.
