My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

I love fog.



We once had a cat who would walk right in front of you, tail straight up. He would keep just enough ahead of you that you couldn't touch his tail. If you sped up so would he. If you slowed down, he slowed down...always keeping just barely out of reach.




This is how fog is.



It can come to you, but you can never go to it.



For every time you think "just a little bit farther and I'll be in the fog"



You realize that it's still just out of your reach.



Things hide in the fog



Only to be revealed little by little as you approach



Distance and depth are skewed what looks so far is really just a few feet away.


Things are blurred at the edges


So that you're left with only a hint of what is in the mist


Fog envelopes you, like a fleece blanket


It muffles sound and mutes colors


And leaves you wrapped in the stillness with only those things right in front of you to focus on.




I love the fog.

Neat pictures. I love fog myself, especially if I don't have to drive in it.

I can see you are really enjoying that new camera!! and blessing us with it, too. I love the way God uses natural things, such as the fog, to teach us and shows how it can be applied to His Word. Have a Blessed New Year.

That was one of the things I loved about moving back to the South. We lived in Albuquerque for almost 20 years and I think I could count on less than one hand the number of times it was foggy.

Wonderful photos. Woke up to a very foggy morning today but didn't get out in time to take any photos.

Great post.

Great pictures and sentiments to go along with them!

I like the occasional fog, the more wispy kind, rather than the can't see two feet in front of you kind.

When I lived in Central California I got to where I truly hated the tule fog that used to come in every winter and keep us in a gray cold haze for weeks at a time. They don't tell you about that part of California about TV!
