Out of the fog

The weather has been miserable for days with wind and rain and the promise of much more to come. However, compared to other parts of Canada, we don’t have any flooding. Early Sunday morning it wasn’t raining so I decided to go for a quick walk, with an umbrella in hand.


It was overcast at home but as I drove downhill, it was obvious the harbour was shrouded in fog. It changes the look of the environment and I was glad I had my camera.





It was low tide





and the fog made it impossible to see much beyond the shoreline. 





Over the hour I was there however, the fog appeared to dissipate somewhat. 





The city began to emerge from the fog 





as did the lighthouse, 





which had been invisible. I watched in the quiet of the Easter morning  





as the veil lifted giving the promise of a better day. 





How appropriate!

Makes me think of that old folk song "The Foggy Foggy Dew"

I've rarely been in fog while living in Texas and Louisiana. I did get to experience it while vacationing in San Francisco. It's like being in a horror movie but immensely fascinating.

That's more like it! That's proper Easter holiday weather, not this warm, sunny stuff that we've been enjoying this weekend. You've got some wonderful atmospheric shots, though I'm sure you'll be looking forward to more summery fare.

I love fog pictures and I find it difficult to capture the beauty of them with my iPhone camera - which is all I have. You got some great shots.
