moody weather

Seems to be my kind of weather with the fog and the mist. I can’t seem to get enough of it and luckily I get quite a bit this time of year.

fog-4670Clouds or fog hovering over Cape Sebastian. Did I forget to mention that the beaches are often deserted this time of year?

fog-4685Another look back at Cape Sebastian nearly an hour later.

fog-4683A bit south toward Pistol River there was this cloud formation. You can see the Roll or Arcus Cloud hovering just above the horizon.  I suspect it was telling us of an incoming storm.

fog-4690Today, driving north, the fog was quite a bit thicker, adding its own beauty and mystery to the scene.

It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself.

  1. These are very beautiful, Gunta, I can feel the kinship you feel with the place and the weather. I like all the colors in the second one, the wide spaciousness of the third, and the layers of the fourth, where I think i can hear the surf…


    • I feel blessed and ever so lucky to be living close enough to witness all the lovely moods of this coastline. I surely can’t think of anyplace I’d rather be… unless it’s the desert (but only in the winter)! 😉


  2. I so enjoyed this look at the sea and the mist, and of course Rachel Carson’s contemplation of the sea. That Roll Cloud is especially arresting. Always enjoy the tribute to the sky that you give us, too, Gunta.


    • My “tribute to the sky”! I sure do like your way with words. It’s such a nice way to describe my fascination with all the different cloud formations. Our coastline certainly provides so much for me to love. Rachel Carson was amazingly prescient. Pity more of us didn’t pay attention to her warnings. I very much enjoyed your visit as always.

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed the somber shots! As for the quote… pity we didn’t learn what Rachel Carson was trying to tell us from way back. Seems we quit using DDT, but forgot about the rest of her sage advice.

    • Thanks, Mr T. I usually get far more put out with sunny summer days than these lovely storms and mists. But, as a previous comment suggested, there’s something for everyone. We just need to soldier through to the weather we prefer.


    • FWIW you and my partner agree on a preference for sunny days. But you’re right, there’s something for everyone. We have months on end with nothing but boring, screaming sunshine in the summer with nary a drop of rain nor a cloud in the sky. There are folks who mistakenly think it rains ALL the time in Oregon. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t!

  3. Oh, yeah. My daughter and I call this weather misty moisty and it is our favorite as well. Also, deserted beaches! What could be better? I especially love the second photo, with its touch of red in the foreground. They are all so lovely.


    • So far, this has been a lovely winter with just enough rain and clouds to suit me. I agree about the second photo, but then the last one seems to capture our moody weather best. Thanks for the visit and comment. Always appreciated!
