AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

There is always an eerie atmosphere in foggy mornings.

In the morning mists
Questioning reality
Open gate welcome

I would love to try early morning fogs, but cannot bring myself to get out and about early enough.

there's always such awe in how the fog creates a mood in us. it's a mystery of what lies beyond.

beautiful colors in the sky (post below). we finally got some rain earlier this evening... didn't last long enough though. temps have been in low hundreds here. hope to see more rain again soon. have a great weekend~

Fog is fine for photography. It brings softness and quite often something magical or mystical as well. As here. Greetings!

Walking in fog is like being in a waking dream. You've done a very nice job of capturing the dream like quality.
