This photo essay holds all the beauty, this brief comment is to let you know how and when I was in this fairy-like atmosphere of amazing beauty and sparkle.
Our unusual weather patterns continue, just as they have throughout most of the world. December arrived colder and drier than normal, but foggy. In the valley where we live, fog comes in occasionally but it has never made a habit of sticking around for days.
Last Saturday morning we made an early trip to the grocery store arriving about 10am. I know, those of you who hop out of bed at 5 am will think I’m a lazy bum, but the truth is my internal clock just runs its own strange schedule. Bedtime around midnight, up around 6 during the week, sleep in to 7 or 8 on Saturday. But I digress. The point is, I was in an amazing land of frozen wonders.
With no further yapping, here is what I captured with my cell phone. What amazing photos these could have been IF I had my point and shoot. They would have been spectacular with my Canon and a tripod.
These photos are taken in full color. Fog and ice reduce things to a near perfect gray-scale. Put on you favorite soft music and enjoy the views.
