Foggy Bend

Foggy Bend

I’m not sure what caused this blanket of fog to lie just above the water of the creek. I think the creek is cold still, yet our weather the past few days has been in the 50s and 60s, very warm for December, and it rained heavily this morning, drizzling all day. In any case, it was a real treat to photograph on the way back from the post office.

The photo may look a little tilted. The trees on the hill to the left are leaning outward, away from a nearly vertical highwall above a railroad track.

I needed several tries to get this right—the lighting is just dim enough, and the fog softened the edges enough that the camera complained. I had to use the railing of the bridge I stood on as a tripod.

The photo below may give you a little more idea of what the fog was like.

What the creek looked like from a distance; the area I photographed is slightly right of center.
