Mist-ical magic

With no warning, the temperatures fell

And the fog with it.

Wonderful golden fog,

Each particle of the air alive

And singing with colour and life.

      February 16, 2012 at 15:25

  13. Oh, you can see this type of mist in our tropical rainforests too.
    Of course, minus the snow. ;)

  37. Lady Fi,

    Your photos are pure poetry.

    These stunning photos makes me think of this poem by Carl Sandburg. (one of my faves.)

    –Fog–

    THE fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Xx

  38. Now that’s amazing. I always have to add my first reaction though: if this were in Los Angeles, we’d call it smog!

    February 16, 2012 at 18:29

    • Luckily all we have is clean fresh air and no smog!

      February 16, 2012 at 18:37
