In a Fog with Good Fences


We have had some very foggy weather 
here in Western Washington State, 
after a few days of heavy rain. 

I have always loved the change in perspective
that fog brings to the landscape, 
so I thought I would take you on 
a little drive so I could share 
some misty, foggy scenes. 


My favorite pink farmhouse enveloped in fog...

You can barely see the foothills of the Cascade Mountains
in the background. 


As we descend deeper into farmland, the fog
becomes quite thick - or 'Murky' as I like to call it. 

All of these photos were taken in color!


Without the distraction of the scenic background, 
telephone lines and fencing create 
linear sculpture. 


Trees stand alone....


A beautiful, misty farmhouse. 


A rather spooky scene......


The road to 'nowhere'!


This large cottonwood tree takes on a sinister vibe.....

Am I in The Twilight Zone? :)


I see no signs of life...
Even the cattle are in hiding. 


But wait - I see someone! 

A flagger - here? In the middle of nowhere? 
On such a spooky day? 

Is he ushering me in to 'The Zone'?


These trees look ready to reach out and grab me! 


Another spooky farmhouse with no signs of life...


These tall shrubs give me the creeps. They look
like apparitions!


None of the trees look friendly...


The birds are gathering...
Is this a Hitchcock movie?


Oh yes - it is definitely strange...


Nothing looks familiar. 


Am I going the right way?


The trees are closing in. 

 I think I'm almost home. 


My neighbor's fence does not look friendly today. 


I arrive at home - the view seems so unfamiliar...


I walk into this and scream! 


And then I wake up. 
It was all a bad dream. 

xoxo

I hope you enjoyed this episode of 'The Twilight Zone'
Dear Friends! Lol!

  3. I have always loved the fog. I live on the sea and so we have quite a bit of fog. It has been so cold here that we had sea-smoke this morning which is sort of like fog. I like fog in the mountains also.

  6. Very interesting photos. Sometimes we get fog in the mornings in the Dry season. When I was a child I lived in a place that got fog in the Winter. But this looks as if the fog lasted all day. Amazing.

  7. Like you, I enjoy a bit of fog. It always adds a bit of mystery to our everyday surroundings. Lovely shots!

  8. Oh Karen, I thoroughly enjoyed your post and photos. The fog is so pretty yet so eery at the same time. We have been having a lot of fog here as well which is very uncommon...

    Thank you so much for sharing, sweet friend - definitely one of my favorite posts from you. Hugs!

  9. Funny :))
    I enjoyed the ride through the fog, because I wasn't
    the one who had to drive :D
    I love how fog changes things, sounds are different too then.
    Well done :)

  11. Thanks for the spooky drive Karen. Some of those trees were kind of creepy looking but some of the views were pretty and soft. We call fog here 'pea soup'. ;) The final photo of the sunset on the mountain though, is very beautiful.

  12. HA!!! It totally looks like another place!!! But my goodness the shots that you captured are so pretty in their own way!!! I love when fog fades into a landscape like that! You had me taken with the scenes around you on this drive Karen!! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!! Did you really walk into that web??? It is such a beautiful web!!!! Nicole xoxo

  13. I loved taking this drive with you as I love foggy days if I don't have to drive in them...everything looks so different in the fog. I loved your narration; so cute....

  15. Dearest Karen,
    Fog makes for a very small and intimate world! Dangerous in traffic too...
    Lovely photos you created and the cobweb is fabulous!
    Hugs to you,

  16. Those are very eerie photos but so, so beautiful. I read where a fog had enveloped Seattle. I miss the fog horn at the Narrows Bridge in Gig Harbor.....

  18. I love the way you presented this post today.The shots are a bit spooky with all that fog around however there is something really lovely about them. Silence.

  19. These remind me of my short visit to Seattle many years ago, it was very foggy there the whole time I stayed! Beautiful though and amazing to see how things look in the fog! xx

  20. Oooooo, now this was a spooky drive filled with wonder and delight, though I must say.
    I'm glad we were in the car together and you didn't have to drive that alone.haha
    Those really were beautiful photos, Karen.
    Thank you again for taking us along.
    Have a beautiful day!

  21. Hello Karen Happy New Year to you. What brilliant photos, Good camera work, Not one of my favorite weathers, however you have captured the stillness through the fog. It's amazing how the weather can make everywhere look so foreign .

  22. Bahaha!! I love the perfectly imagined goofiness of this post! It was fun in your twilight zone for a moment. Lol

    I relate with the fog part. We can have that quite often here as we live so close to big Lake Superior, and out in the country from us they get much warmer weather (we get what's called "lake effect" weather...which aka means highly air conditioned temps). The folks even 20 mins or so out from us see a whole month of summer earlier and later than we do! That's how drastic the temp differences can be and thus we get a lot of fog effect. It's usually fleeting and lasts only a morning or something and it's really kind of pretty or magical to watch it float right off of our bay.

    Thanks for sharing sweet nut ball and have a great weekend! xo

  23. Loved this as I say with a big smile. I also love a foggy morning. These photos were gorgeous!

  24. Thanks for sharing your tour of the Twilight Zone. It sure adds a completely different perspective to your scenic landscapes. I don't mind the fog so much just as long as I don't have to drive in it.

  25. Oh that was so much fun, Karen! I had to laugh at the end :) I also love taking photos when it is foggy outside. Something about it is just so ethereal and magical to me. I hope you had a good holiday season and a happy new year!

  26. Wonderful photographs! I could almost feel the damp stillness of the fog as I looked at your pics. Some of those trees looked like skeletal hands. It was interesting to see the farm houses swathed in fog.

  30. We've had the same foggy days up here and they have lead to some beautiful scenes. I love a white farm house in the fog - the frosty tree branches - the light on the trees - all gorgeous.

  33. Dear Karen,

    There is no fog that can stop your feelings.
    Because you create "the land of family" every day with your art.

  34. What a delightful post, Karen. It comes at the perfect time because it was a foggy morning here too, and I took a few pictures of the mysterious trees and such. It always makes me a bit nervous when I have to drive in the fog, how about you? The spider web picture is so unusually beautiful. And the birds on the wire seem to not mind the fog at all. They are just going about their day.

    Have a good week, Karen.

  36. The fog was sure thick there. We had a little over the weekend but not much. I think it's fascinating and I just loved your journey through the "Twilight" zone. Also that cool looking web at the end was really neat to see and the view you have is awesome.

  37. That is a lot of fog! How dreamy, misty and yes a little bit eerie.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hello my friend!!! Sorry I am just not getting back to blogging. Wow, I really love how the fog adds to the beauty of these pictures!

  39. I always love the fog and think it has such mystery to add to the landscape. Great shots you have here.
