Foggy Mornings

I really enjoy foggy mornings.  The fog gives the landscape a surreal feeling.  A foggy morning seems very quiet and tranquil to me.  The fog changes the way everything looks.  It’s like you are in a totally different world.

Here are a few of my favorite images from the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge near Deland Florida:

    • Thank you Keli! You are way more than half as talented, you just need to get your husband to stop the car once in a while. 🙂

  9. Lovely; very calming. We haven’t had fog around here for ages. Almost forgotten what it is like.

    • You are right, it is very calming. We don’t get very many foggy days here in Florida either. We only get them in the winter. I can only remember having about 6 or so this winter.

  17. that last photo looks like a water “road”..:)


    April 19, 2013 at 11:25 am

    • Thank you Charron! In a way it is a water road. It’s a canal that they use to move water from one place to another.

  22. Reblogged this on Acuarela de palabras and commented:
    Me encantan estas fotos de nieblas matutinas tomadas por Roy Thoman! Mirar a través de la niebla me sugiere reflexionar acerca de la Percepción: Cuando miramos, vemos algunas cosas, no vemos otras, negamos algunas e imaginamos o inventamos muchas otras…

  23. The camera, and a good photographer, can do so much with a bit of mist 😉


    June 12, 2013 at 11:00 pm

      June 20, 2013 at 10:40 pm
