Foggy Weather

(click on images for sunny views of similar scenes)

Didn't mean to have a cliff hanger here, but things have conspired to slow down the finish work on my new floor. It's coming along (and getting rave reviews locally!) but I didn't realize that trimming and finish work would possibly be more time consuming than actually laying the floor material!! It's OK, it will look good in due time and then I can share some photos of it.
Meanwhile, the fogs of Autumn have begun and I've decided to link a couple of these new images with the the "bright and sunny" versions of the similar vistas, just for fun. There really is something soft and mysterious about thick mists. When they last too long or become relentless, well then I forget the mystery and just call them depressing. But they seem to be quite seasonal in our area, so it's something different for now.
When I spoke of autumn melancholia in an earlier post, I was referring, in part, to the way the brilliant colors of Spring and Summer tend to fade to more subtle earth tones. To that, I might add the fading due to fog and mists...yes, Autumn is definitely moving in at WillOaks Farm.

I love foggy mornings. I've managed to capture one good picture of our back hills in the mist. Nice shots.

I love these foggy days, and like Sharkbytes, especially the mornings. These pictures are great. I'm looking forward to seeing more mornings like this myself.

I do believe I like the first two pictures in foggy mode rather than sunny mode...

Love the fog shots! I love how the bright colors of summer start to fade into deeper, richer shades of Fall. My favorite time of year!

There is something mysterious about fog but like you said, after awhile it's depressing. When it starts burning off, it's magical!
