Magical fog



magical fog
unfurling yourself
upon sea and land
echos of the gull's cry
vibrate against
your gray walls

~sigh~

Can you tell that I am still missing Maine?
These shots were taken in Rockport.

There is a brisk breeze in the air today.
Fall is coming.
For some of us anyway.
And for others, 
their spring is just beginning.
As nicely noted by one of you.

Have a great weekend friends!
Stay safe.

Delightful. Fog always makes things looks so dreamy and mystical.

Stephen King lives in Maine. He wrote a book about The Mist.

I like your little poem much better than his book.

I guess seeing the picture of the fog, reminded me of the book The Mist.... It might of been a short story, I can't remember.

Such lovely captures, Reena, and lovely words to match! Although we get more than our share of GRAY in Seattle, I still love the fog, its mystery, the feeling being able to get lost in it -- lost in a good way. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!

The first photo really grabbed me. Love, love, love the haziness and the little pop of green grass to the right. Perfect composition.

Barbara Shallue said...

Lovely photos and poem :) Thanks to blogging, when I mentioned my weather or seasons, in the back of my mind I think of my South African blogger friend whose seasons are exactly opposite. I love it!

Ashley Sisk said...

That fog really is magical - I wouldn't mind seeing it around here sometime.

Kathy said...

I love your fog pictures! In fact, I love fog!

Ginny said...

Moody, sparse, and stunning! And I love that little bit of color on the lower right as a contrast to show up the fog even better! I am calling today the first day of fall, because we had to turn on the heat for the first time this season, as it was in the forties last night!

Madi and Mom said...

Happy weekend to you too.
Isn't there a poem about fog rolling as quiet as cat feet?
Lovely picture.
58 for a high here today and dang chilly and overcast. Yesterday it was 89. As we say here in NC, if you don't like our weather wait 5 minutes and it will change.

I'm really digging the first shot with the bulk-head in the foreground. I suspect there a bunch more photos lurking in there :-)

I've never been to Maine but this lets me know what I am missing.

forgetmenot said...

I love the fog--it gives the world such an ethereal look -magical, mystical, someplace not of this world. Lovely photos. Mickie :)

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

Really beautiful and mysterious looking.

A Rosy Note said...

Oh, I love these. They give off a feeling of mystery.

ladyfi said...

So lovely - and a little mist-ical!

Ann said...

Normally if I wake up and see fog I'm not generally impressed but if I woke up to a view like that first picture, I would be thrilled. What a view That one should be hanging on a wall

Liza said...

I love fog. There is something so mystical about it.

Sandra said...

that second shot screams magic for sure. i am assuming the weather is not perfect in PA right now? our niece lives in Perkasie and she had to close her pool this week, to cold to swim.

Cheryl said...

Just so you know, it was 40 degrees here this morning: 130 miles south and west of Rockport. It's pretty to look at but brutal come cold weather. I wish it weren't so because living here is da bomb.

Andrew said...

A wonderful landscape..

Jennifer Richardson said...

sometimes fog feels like a
cozy comfort,
a blanket thrown softly over
the bright light
just until my eyes can
rest and ready themselves
for the day.
I love your foggy shots:)

justine said...

these are fantastic! so well composed

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

In rain or fog or sunshine, I never knew Maine was so beautiful--I think you need to go back and take more photos--Maybe in the winter?? :-)))

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Fog on the water is so magical- unless of course, you are out in a boat. Then it's just scary.

Anika said...

Beautiful...I love fog too. It's probably the thing I miss most about living in SF. Lovely images.

Erin K said...

We get fog like this in Vancouver as well. Nothing too thick, but still beautiful. And it makes for a perfect day of snuggling up with something warm with a cup of good tea.

I can't go on more on how I love your photos!

olivia said...

reminds me a little of when I lived in Vancouver.. that first picture really pulled me in! love love love!!!!!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Fog to me definitely feels so special..., since I don't get to experience it often here in coastal RI. I do remember it vividly from visits to Northern CA..., you only hear the crashing waves and seagulls, but see nothing! Magical indeed!!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Oh,... where those cute flip flops always in your header, or am I just noticing them now??

Hilary said...

Oh how I love fog. These are just beautiful.

lisleman said...

(sorry if this shows up twice it didn't seem to work)
When the fog has wind and moistens your face, I like it the best.

Rosemary Aubut said...

Beautiful Reena!

deb duty said...

I never knew fog could be so beautiful!

Linda R. said...

These are such fabulous shots.. Living here in the desert my whole life, I don't see much fog. But when ever I visit the ocean in California I have to say I just LOVE it..

Your writing is amazing.. Such beautiful words with Beautiful photos..

Hugs, Linda

Laura said...

Great capture. The tones are wonderful . I haven't seen fog for so long!

Janie said...

Misty photos that draw a person in. LOVE the feel of these photos. Usually I think the sun has to be out, then I think overcast is good. But you took it to a new level. What a great eye you have for photography.

Marcie said...

I'd recognize Maine fog anywhere!! Lovely images!!!

Mental P Mama said...

I love the fog, in certain conditions. And, I think that your photos are excellent.

Sallie (FullTime-LIfe) said...

Magical and misty. I loved Rockport! And all of Maine. (I think I already told you that, but who can say it too often?)

eileeninmd said...

I love the early morning fog. Wonderful scenes and photos.
