A Different Place

                                                                                                                             


Fog changes everything.




Wild grape vines become a decoration for the oak tree...




 and spider webs festoon the cedars like ornaments on a Christmas tree.




On closer inspection, I can't find the spiders,

but their handiwork leaves no doubt that they've been here.




Even the familiar road becomes unfamiliar,

like something from a fairy tale.




The pattern of the forest is simplified, a single tree isolated.




I cannot see the One who made the fog on this misty morning,

but His fingerprints are everywhere.



He also made the stars.
Genesis 1:16

Ah yes, fog changes everything. Beautiful shots of the creation, with those 'fingerprints' making it even more special.

Loved your Living Palette photos - especially the reflections ! Gorgeous.

As someone who loves atmosphere in images, these appeal very much to me. Love the fog creeping in, and the fall colors still so vivid.

Hi Connie AH! These shots are all stunning in different ways. Very atmospheric and you being there, I am sure it was also very quiet. Colours are wonderful.

Wonderful, wonderful photos! The Creator's finger prints are wildly beautiful.

He just places His love on everything and all we have to do is take notice and appreciate it. These are really lovely. We have just returned from a very long journey and many of our days began driving in heavy fog~

Thoughts for the day said...

It has been very foggy here in the mornings and I have been driving my daughter to work, it is so scary and like you say the road is familiar but frightening at the same time. I don't like it.

Beautiful series. I love all the little basketlike webs the spiders have decorated the cedars with.

Heavy fog in a shot really opens up the imagination....These captures are just beautiful....

I know God must feel bad when He gives us so many signs of His presence and so often we miss them....He was certainly giving you a show with these shots....

I love being out on a foggy morning, when even the most familiar shapes and places seem different, and even my footsteps sound muffled. The cedar tree with all the little webs is so pretty! It was a busy night for the spiders. :)
