“It amazes me when mistMist ~ Alice Oswald
chloroforms the fields
and wipes out whatever world exists…
…and a crow
calls down to me in its treetop voice
that there are webs and drips
and actualities up there”
A cold spell followed by a warm front brought two days of mist and so out I went with my camera on a solitary silent walk that was quite marvellous.
More than a photo a day here but still am linking to the citysonnet challenge: nature

could not choose just one for this prompt though!
They all work but the opening image of the tree and disappearing power lines was the stand out for me.
I agree hence made it the feature – and it was almost the last one I shot so evidently I found the right mood! could not leave the others aside to just gather dust in the archive though
In the past I would have picked one without obviously man made objects but recently I’ve been including them in some of my shots.
Lovely photos! I love misty days!
something intimate about the closed in misty views
Lovely photos. It reminds me of misty mornings in my home town in northwestern Minnesota. I would love to photograph the city (I’ve since moved to Denver) on a cold misty morning. I think 400tx pushed a few stops would be perfect for that.
Anyway, glad to have found your blog, and thank you for the inspiration.
thanks for your visit here Tobias – if only WP had let me know you were pending sooner!
I like your misty pics much better than mine. Methinks I need to go back to editing and try more different b&w edits…
I shot these in B&W – something I often do as it shows me what the eventual outcome will look like when I process the RAW
Now I am feeling guilty for not going out in the mist and capturing such inspirational views. And what a lovely poem. It could have been written about here.
Isn’t that poem perfectly wonderful – such a find to match the images here
Oh, you really are making the most of the fog…. in such a wonderful way!
it’s nature providing some theatre for the photographer 😉
Nature provides but photographer captures like a film director! 😉 This one is very talented!
Just the kind of uplift I need right now as my photography mojo has mostly been missing – thank you dear Marina x
I’m so happy you enjoyed this, however I seriously doubt your photography mojo’s missing! 😉 xoxoxo
