Before the fog lifts


  1. Those are the kind of mornings that i like to slip the canoe into the water and go for a quiet paddle around the shoreline. Nice shot!

    • That would be really pleasant! I don’t have boat access to the river here or I’d do more of that.

  3. Very haunting shot! The birder in me is just dying to know what water bird is there.. ;o) I love this shot I think the ghost of Ansel is speaking thru you again.

    • those are Mallards. We usually have a few around, but this year, in that particular location, several hundred spent the winter. They had a hundred or so geese for company too, many more than usual. I have no idea why.

  4. How mystical this is. One of my favorites.

    • On a short walk early this morning, the fog was still hanging over the river and the trees on a point on the other side just grabbed my attention.

      (I missed the shot I really wanted of Robins in a bush silhouetted over the river because I couldn’t get the camera into action quickly enough.)

  6. Now this is truly beautiful in the tones of black and white. I really like the clearness of detail with the fog as well as the composition. Yes, it is tranquil. Lovely, lovely, montucky. 🙂

    • Thanks, Anna! I love it when Nature creates scenes like that and feel privileged to be there for the few fleeting seconds they exist.

  7. I really like this photo. Easy for me to imagine how it would feel to be sitting there on the banks of the river with arms around my knees in soliloquy!

    • I think the river and the pines are really pretty in the morning fog. It lasts only an hour, but stays in my memory.
