Tsunami of White

There is a park on a hill overlooking the river and the bustle of downtown.  The fog was rolling in waves from hill side to hill side as it simultaneously engulfed the valley.  The sun light hitting the fog on the hill side I had chosen was finally blocked by the isolated tree. I hope you enjoy a second of calm as you step back and look at life from a distant perch.

As you follow the river the fog thickens and becomes a wall of clouds that constantly shifts as it surrounds different sections of the city.   Above it all you can see the shifts of blinding fog to sunlight-pierced clarity.  Each scene lasting for brief moments and then carried away, re-shaped – as more city blocks are swallowed in a tsunami of white.  Inside the fog the sunlight is reflected all around you; every where you look is toward a bright light…. what us novices might think of as ‘snow blind’.  Thicker fog will darken and then block off the sun with a moving illusion of unknown forms appearing and disappearing, melting and rising with the breeze.

      I don’t know what to say but thank you! I do appreciate it. Sometimes we don’t see what is right in front of us. I try to capture what I can. You are most welcome – any time!

        Exactly. Sometimes we are oblivious to the beauty around us, but there is so much of it in this world.

        That is what I like about the global access we have here. I have mentioned it before, but sharing peoples experience from across the planet…. and from places we cannot visit…. to see images from worlds I cannot imagine, and hear its beauty in their words. It just works out very cool.

    Fog!
    I have to admit I used to be a fan of fog, then my chest problems would play hell with me!
    Then there was street robbery where an old man died where I once lived, and fog meant fear for a while!
    I do like to see fog when it is really thick and visibility is just more of a silhouette, than the actual item or person!
    I hope you’re fine and all is well. I have been in and out of hospital and can sit up for short bursts of time so will be back to usual soon I hope!
    Best wishes!

      Hello! It is all too easy to become immune to the beauties in your own ‘town’. We sometimes overlook what is right in front of us even as others travel miles to see it. You are very welcome and keep safe.

      Thank you. It only lasted for a few minutes and the whole hillside got blanketed with a pool of fog. I just kept taking pictures as the tree and sunlight interacted with the shifting fog and this one had all elements. … always bring your camera ………!
