February 6, 2008


It has been really foggy here the past couple days. The temperature has warmed and there has been a fine misty rain falling. The snow is finally melting and in places the brown grass can be seen poking out.

As you drive down the road the fog obscures everything except for that which is right in front of you.

In the car today my 10 yr old son said, “It feels like we are all alone in the world.”

    I love fog!

  3. Girlymom4 says:

    What a weird feeling that would be to be all alone in the world. It started out foggy here today and then the snow came and it hasn’t left yet.

  4. Heather says:

    That is an amazing picture!!! I absolutely love it.

  5. Kai says:

    Gorgeous photo! It’s incredible.

  6. Suzanne says:

    Wow, great shot. It does make me feel kinda lonely…

  7. Steff says:

    You obviously have created a paradise, to be all alone and secluded only allowing those who are welcome into your paradise seems really awesome.

  8. Misty says:

    Beautiful picture :)

  9. Kristina says:

    That’s what it’s looked like here in Nebraska the last couple of days too. Except we have snow on the ground.

  10. Lisa says:

    I love this picture!

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile, I love the way you do short and simple, but so full of life, I am inspired by some of the things I see here.
    When I saw this post I decided I just wasn’t able to restrain the comments any longer.
    We lived in Alaska for a number of years and had many a winter full of ice fog on and off.
    I so agree with your son’s thought about feeling alone in it. A thought that comes with that feeling in my mind was the very still and pronounced quiet that was present also. Kind of like standing all alone in the middle of some woodland during a big snow fall. Flakes just drifting down ever so gently, nothing to hear but that deep, serene and muffled silence. It’s almost like being in a dream.
    The picture was beautiful, your family is lovely, your blog is special, very much enjoyed. Thank you :)

    Ooooow you need to go see the move Mist … spoooooooky!!

  13. Camilla says:

    Sometimes i feel like that too.

    Beautiful photo, there’s this fantastic delicacy between the fine sharp branches and that soft fog. You inspire me to get my camera out more often! :D

  14. Brigitte says:

    Sometimes if it’s really early in the AM, with no traffic, I’ll get a shiver because it suddenly feels like the world ended and somebody forgot to tell me . .

  15. ashley says:

    thats a beautiful picture

  16. jody says:

    It is ethereal.

    I believe spring is just around the bend.

  17. Cary says:

    I love that feeling. You suddenly feel so tuned in, because nature has forced a little peace and quiet.

  19. Scott says:

    That looks like a shot from the movie The Outsiders.

  20. Scott says:

    And by the Outsiders I of course meant The Others (the Nicole Kidman movie).

    Chris says: Ha! I was trying to picture where this would be in the Outsiders…like is there a rumble in the fog ;-)

  21. Wendy says:

    Oh to dream.

  22. cce says:

    I guess that’s why the fog is often referred to as a blanket, hushing, soft, ushering in total transformations. Love that photo.

  23. johana says:

    im with maddy…reminds me of the mist. but great picture.

  24. arduous says:

    What a gorgeous shot. Are you enjoying your digital SLR? Do you recommend it to others?

    Chris says: Yes, I love it! I can’t wait to figure out what it does beyond the automatic settings ;-)

  25. Jamie AZ says:

    Beautiful picture! Makes me wish I were there. As long as I didn’t get snowed in. :)

  26. Mary W says:

    I love the depth of field and leading lines in that picture - awesome shot!!!!

    I love the fog.

  27. Angel says:

    If that photo were a cover to a book, I’d read it!! :o)

  28. Fina says:

    Being from SF (and I seem to mention that every chance I get on your blog)
    I love fog. Love the smell, the serenity, all of it. Great picture!!

  29. Shannon says:

    I stared at this picture for a while trying to figure out what the white thing was underneath the tree. It finally dawned on me that it could be a pile of snow.
    I suppose that’s what happens when you live in Texas and have never seen more than an oh-so-light dusting of the stuff.

    Oh Chris once you go manual you’ll never go back!!!!!!!!!
