fog and longing

I don't know why it is, but I love fog. It seems mysterious and beckoning, it encloses things and makes them seem both wilder and simpler. It hides things. It was very very foggy yesterday, because of the thaw and melting snow. I desperately wanted to run around in the woods taking pictures, but by the time we got out of the motorcycle show, it was dark. WAHN!

These pictures were taken in the dark.

Right there at the arena where they held the show, I discovered a
frozen pond with many muskrat houses! YAY! It was already pretty
dark, but I had fun attempting to get some pictures. You can see the
lights from the surrounding area in some of the pond pictures. By the
time we got to Kensington Metropark, it was totally dark. I was very
disappointed, but I did take some pictures there with my tripod,
which, after adjustment, don't look like night.

I was really pleased to see the pond and muskrat houses. I like
muskrats. I like nature, and I don't get enough of it any more to
suit me. WAHN!

But it was nice to get a mini fix of nature last night. YAY! And to be somewhere a little different. I don't get out as much in the winter.

I'm so glad I live in the South.

Oooh, pretty fog! I have been craving the nature lately, too. It is so much harder to motivate in the winter.

Coffeypot--we'll be right down to take DOt's Place at your house, LOL! And get warmed up.

Berry bird, we did take a longish walk int he dark, but it just wasn't the same cause even though we were out in nature, we couldn't SEE anything--literally.
