Fog over Silver Creek

Today was our 8th day in a row of pea soup fog... apparently we are having a weather pattern where the cold and damp is being held in place by a layer of warmer air above it. HOW I wish that were the other way around, LOL.

This is Silver Creek as seen from the walking park behind the library where I work. That bridge is only about 50 yards from where I was standing to take this photo and yet it is barely visible. It's kind of cool to see how objects in the distance appear almost as layers in a collage.

And by now you know that I can't resist attempting an intersting macro. The point of focus for this photo didn't land *quite* where I wanted it, but I still like the image. Those "stalks" of moss are about half an inch long. Not bad for an older point-and-shoot!

You may be sick of the fog, but what a great photo that is!

fog pic is pretty...and the moss looks like a little green forest...it's so weird how if there is nothing for perspective, you absolutely can't tell size at all....

Fog lends
an air of mystery to the landscape, doesn't it? Your photo is wonderful and I liked your comment about the collage layering...very insightful.
