Here in Victoria we’re having a pretty rare weather occurrence – daily fog! It’s been rolling in quite spectacularly each early evening then staying all night and sometimes all day. It’s creating havoc with flights and traffic but I have to say, I think it’s super cool.
I love the hush it blankets the city in and the way light plays off of it. I’m having the best evening walks where I start out with sunglasses on and end up in near dark, all within an hour! I find the fog calming, soothing and mysterious. The timing is perfect too – I’m really busy at work, with preparations for the upcoming craft season and with more family obligations than usual. The fog is relaxing me and pulling me back to nature, where I always feel the most grounded. It has a similar effect as snow, but you don’t have to shovel it and it’s much easier to drive in!
Like I said, this doesn’t happen often, certainly not for days on end, so I’m enjoying the shroud of mist while it’s here. Funny how weather becomes the hot topic and everyone has an opinion. Like or dislike for the stuff, what camp are you in?
PS: I’ve learned this week that fog is hard to photograph! These shots don’t do it justice but I hope you get the idea – it really is pretty and magical!
