Fog Belt Morn - N. Calif

"No spring nor summer beauty 
hath such grace 
As I have seen in 
one autumnal face." 
            John Donne

"Walk patiently through
 this troubled world,  and
you will find great treasure. 
Even though your house 
may be small, 
look within it!"

“A word of encouragement 
during a failure is worth 
more than an hour of
 praise after success.”

I love the misty morning shot and the cloud bank. The little ducklings all in a row are cute, too. Great quotes, marvelous post. Thanks for brightening our world.

A mostly gray photograph can have its own beauty and interest. I really thought that the first one was quite striking!

Good morning, lovely captures. The foggy morning looks calm and peaceful to me. Awesome sky shots and I like the geese in a row! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Fog scene is beautiful!

The foggy scene in the first picture is incredible! Sometimes a more muted palette yields the best scenes. And wise quotes as well.

Beautiful shots- the dramatic cloudy sky especially.

Christine said...

How lovely to feel the stillness in your first photo! So serene and calming!

That first shot is so pretty and peaceful looking.
Loved the row of ducks lined up in the water by the fence.
Man those are some amazing looking clouds.

Thank you so much for your thoughts & prayers for my sweet kitty, Snickers. It means a lot to know people care.

Great shots! The first is my favorite. And I love this quote: "A word of encouragement
during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success."
