Foggy days

December 3, 2009

The first snow fell a few days ago. It topped the mountains and stayed in the alpine areas. Around here (at 8oom high) we just had a few centimeters of fresh snow that is almost gone now. Generally December   can bring  a dense  fog hiding fields and forests  or a light mist  that seems to create  new landscapes. All eerie and poetic.

Fields and villages get a “new look”,  unreal, soft, silent.   Like this  cool Winter sunset over lone farms near my home.

If you are lucky though, and often we are, fog and mist  change into a blue sky and crisp air. The countryside is the same and yet, it is different.

    Your photos are so poetic, in particular the one in the middle. I feel I am there, looking into a loong story about what have happened as time have passed.

    Even though the fog makes beautiful sceneries, blue sky is great to have!

    All things nice…

    Hi Isa,
    I really love Foggy Day as well. What a beautiful and spooky image of the mist against and through the bare branches of the trees: – )
    It’s Spring here on the other side of the world!

    Love the photos. It must feel nice to wake up every morning and enjoy these pristine landscapes.

  6. Astonishing images; if my comments are not lost amongst your growing number of admirers then I congratulate you.

    Over & out.

  7. Please excuse my delay in answering your wonderful comments on these foggy days’ pictures.
    Thank you giiid, All things nice, Robert, Deanna, iniyaal and chasingstatus. Fog adds something special to a landscape, it can last a bit too long in this area though. Some days you are lucky to get a few shy sunrays through the mist, barely enough to highlight the whole scenery, then it is simplyy beautiful !
    Chasingstatus, you comments were not lost, I am looking forward to visit your blog and travel along your roads.
    Thank you all 🙂

  8. Isa, the photographs are beautiful. A wonderful country where you live. The scenes are like a post card picture. The fog seems to add serenity and a certain kind of quietness to the atmosphere.

    • Thank you Yvonne. You are right, the fog adds serenity and a tranquil mood to a landscape although some people say it can also be a bit scarry at times. But not for me when in Nature. Maybe in certain areas of a city though.

  9. I’m really drawn to the lyrical quality in “Foggy Day” and “First Snow”…looking forward to more!
