Gray

A morning last week when fog hung heavy, a small flock of Whistling Ducks wait on the pond for breakfast (scattered scratch feed).

A change of pace, evoking a sense of beauty in a different form.

Julia said...

It's a grey day here too but no fog today. I wonder what the Whistlers think about the fog. It doesn't register I bet as long as they get their free meals.

Hugs,
JB

fog creates the greatest effects

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

Fog makes for some lovely pictures. We were pretty gray yesterday. The Whistlers probably didn't care about the weather as long as they got breakfast!

Kate said...

Love foggy mornings and days. It softens the air and atmosphere. Gives an element of mystery to the surroundings, too.

Karen S. said...

What did the one Whistler say to the other? Are we in Minnesota? No way they have far more snow silly!

Janey and Co. said...

Spooky..Great reflections too.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What a pretty misty view.

Sandra said...

in the pool at the YMCA today we had this kind of mist rising off the pool and it is indoors. the temp was 47 and the pool water was 84 and it made its on fog. but no ducks on it. LOL

don said...

The fog and the vague image of the ducks make this picture very effective as a weather affected picture. I like it very much.

Farm Girl said...

I think that is soo pretty. :) I love how it looks in the fog. I am a pretty big fan of fog this year. I love the water and how still it looks with the ducks on it.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Ohhh, I love this.

nookworm said...

I really like foggy scenes like this. Beautiful and a bit eerie.

Sylvia K said...

We usually see a lot of days like this one -- gray and foggy, but this year has been amazingly different, very mild temps and blue skies! Needless to say, I'm not complaining!!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Very swamp like. Got gators?

love foggy mornings around water. Something eerie about it.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Hi Theresa, I'm back! :)
Thanks for adding my fence to your list! And I just love your fence with all those details.
And I loved the closer views on your ducks, they are really pretty :)
I'm not quite sure though of this foggy picture ;) But since I like fog with all its mysteries, I like that one also :))
Have a fine day

I like this photo. Very serene and calm looking.

That's a rather different photo for you. So is there very little fog in your area or did you decide to try a photo in the fog.?

Beth said...

Theresa, thank you so much for remembering me! xo Beth

Mama Zen said...

Oh, that's lovely!

jeannettestgermain said...

This looks familiar...because for the past 2 weeks a fog has been hanging here too - sometimes it cleared up, and sometimes not:) The latter kind of makes for short days!

Justin Carfagnini said...

There's just something about fog that I really like. One of the things is, it makes scenic photos look extra interesting.

DIMI said...

Whistling docks and foggy morning is something to wake up to. A dramatic nature.

DJan said...

We see fog so often but I still love it. Makes everything soft and mysterious, even whistlers. :-)

messymimi said...

It looks like they are playing hide and seek without even having to hide! That's what fog can do.

Laura. M said...

Uuufff, is very dense !!

Birdman said...

That fog gives a damp, wet feeling to the morn. What no fence?

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your fog looks mysterious and magical. In my real life, it is eerie and scary. I like light!

Black Jack's Carol said...

I had a lot of misconceptions about Texas until coming across your blog. One of them was that fog would be almost unknown. Margaret's comment made me smile. I thought we only described fog that way in Quebec :) Lovely photograph!

Debbie said...

what a great view, those whistlers have finally been upstaged!!!!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Beautiful photograph..Happy Weekend, Judy

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I love the romanticism of fog...

Derek said...

Your photo conveys a feeling, an ambience, a mood. I love that about it.

It also causes me to remember how cold and wet and uncomfortable being out in the fog in the UK was. I don't miss the fog at all.

Have a great weekend.
