Making the most of Mist & Minimalism

“It amazes me when mist
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”

Mist ~ Alice Oswald

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

  1. 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.

  2. I like your misty pics much better than mine. Methinks I need to go back to editing and try more different b&w edits…

  3. 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.
