Fog Along the Road

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 29 October 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

We are heading back toward Loleta. This image demonstrates how changeable the weather was on this morning. Steady rain had given way to sunshine by the time I'd reached the beach. Now - as the sun warms the air upon the cool wet fields - fog has formed.

I am standing atop the bridge that connects Cannibal Island to the Eel River flood plain - facing east. It is beautiful here. The air is sweet. The dominant sound is of ocean surf. Storm driven waves churning and breaking along the beach just behind me.

[notebook]: My continued apologies to all of you. My schedule has gone off-the-scale busy just now. I'm most grateful for the work - but also aware that it's a the price of not tending to the most encouraging comments I've been receiving here. My thanks for your kind words and understanding. My hope is that things will return to 'normal' soon.

I love nothing better than fog. I swear I could live inside of fog and never complain..well except for when I want to park the car.. and this one time when I woke up and the sheep had escaped from the paddock and were eating the flowers in the garden and i could hear then baaing but not see them which was a little unnerving..perhaps I could NOT live in fog. But still, it makes an image magical does'nt it? I did a self portrait when you find yourself with some spare time, if you want to see me.

willow from Chelsea, United States

I'd have to agree - it is beautiful there. And no worries - we all understand swamped. Seems to be an almost perpetual state for me.
