Quiet of the Fog

Quiet of the Fog, Yosemite National Park

One aspect of nature that I love is fog. Perhaps my love for fog is rooted in the fact I seldom saw it in my youth. Now every time I see it I can’t help but enjoy it. It’s not that I love being cold and wet, I merely enjoy the atmosphere it lends to any scene.

Fog is an instant game changer making the most ordinary of scenes seem mysterious. It is when you stop to watch the fog that it’s movement becomes most captivating. In remote locations this movement has unique quiet to it. The quiet of the fog combined with the sensation of its condensation on your skin connects you physically to the scene you’re witnessing. It’s as if the landscape before you reaches out to touch you.
