Morning Fog Clarity

The morning can be somewhat hazy or foggy
all around you and within you too.

My first inclination is to sniff and
pretty much any spot will attract me.

 Come on Ron!
Up and Over
There aren't that many steps!

Slow, methodical steps 
as he places one foot in front of the other.

 Down the steps leading to the beach
always careful

 A few minor adjustments
a flick here
and
a click there...

There now

~~~clarity~~~

he is in capturing mode.

Can't you just imagine 
the waves rolling in 
slowly and methodically,
just like we were as 
we arrived for our 
morning de-clutter.

PS...major thanks to Daddy Jim 
at 
for the candids!

  1. Great pictures of your morning. Must be wonderful to go there. Imagine you are alone there.
    We have a sunny morning and the dachshunds are laying on the front stairs after the morning walk.

  12. Nifty photos! My fav - walking down the steps.
    Our air is thick too, but it's smoke from the forest fires. No danger to us, but the air is very bad.

    1. This is so unfortunate...we had a forest fire here in 2007 and we were almost evacuated...so stressful...smoke is a major health hazard for breathing and my Dad Ron has to stay clear of any smoke...especially neighbour's chimneys and backyard bonfires...this all started 15 years ago and looks like will be around for a long time to come.

  15. Once again, amazing pictures! I really love the fog but there are times it does make me feel a little claustrophobic...I guess that's just me! :-)

    I hope you and your Dad's are enjoying your weekend!

    1. I understand the claustrophobia aspect of fog...here in N.S. we have so much of it and it plays with us relentlessly. One good thing about it though...it comes and goes on a whim...some in the morning and gone by afternoon...phew...we love taking pics in it because the effects are truly amazing. Take advantage of this fact Kim and I bet you will have some great pics of your dogs!

    1. I'm sure you put everything into your work as you do with your artistic side. Ron had fun with the header...I guess it helps that I'm tearing around the beach chasing Mr. Orangie so he can get some great action shots. Cheers my friend! Sophie
