Travel Theme: Misty

“To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of year, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthy life can be.” — Rachel Carson
 

Mysterious, moody, magnificent mist – that’s the theme for this week from Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack.

 

When you are on vacation, the last thing you want at the beach is a rainy day. But for a photographer, rain and mist create a great ambiance. Plus, all the crowds leave! Here are a couple of foggy pictures from a previous year’s vacation at Rehoboth Beach DE.

Around Thanksgiving last year, my family visited Petit Jean State Park. Hoping for a sunny day to enjoy the fall colors, we were met instead with a dense fog. But once again, perfect for photography mood and ambiance.
