Fog

The fog comes on little cat feet 




It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches



and then moves on.

  16. Hi Michelle, beautiful and peaceful shots. I have seen the fog in California "move" in off the coast before and it almost looked alive, rolling in over the hills, this reminded me of that. Very pretty.

  17. Great photos and the words by Sandburg go so well with them.
    We used to live on the top of a hill and loved seeing the fog seeping up. Would always hope it wouldn't quite make it to us though. The tully fog we get in Bakersfied, isn't so calming though. It settles in for way too long sometimes.

  28. these are really wonderful - did you use a special filter to get the fog capture? I love how the first one draws in your eye - and in the second that tree silhouette on right really makes that capture

  31. Calin - I didn't use a filter at all. In fact, no processing other than the watermark you see.
