The photographs today and tomorrow are a demonstration of how fast weather changes around here. Be sure to take a look at tomorrow's weather.

willow from Chelsea, United States

There's a wonderful, magical feel to this image. Nicely done - can't wait to see tomorrow's!

@willow: Thank you. This magical park is a block away from our house. (In reference to your comment about yesterday's photograph, I grew up in the South, but have lived in the West all of my adult life.)

bluechameleon from Vancouver, Canada

Jack, this is just amazing. It reminds me of something out of a fairy tale. There is so much expression in those branches. Beautiful.

1 Feb 2009 5:48am

@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon. The park is officially called, "Woodland Meadow," but everyone calls it the "Dog Park" because you can let your dogs go unleashed; there is a great community of dogs that gather each day.

EYES WIDE SHUT from United Kingdom

Those limb-like branches reaching out from the body, always fascinate me. Every tree has an indivif=dual character, which is why I love photographing them so much. A lovely shot, Jack, with the gentle mist rolling in from the background to envelope the scene. Beaitifully observed

@EYES WIDE SHUT: Thanks, Paul.

micke bergling from Sweden

Ajay from Pune, India

Mysterious scene. Also mysterious to think how change of weather will make it look different.

1 Feb 2009 6:27am

@Ajay: Actually it will be a different scene tomorrow, Ajay; but in the same area, just a couple of miles apart. It was the weather that changed so drastically.

beautiful atmospheric image. I love the fog and how it pairs so beautifully with the moss laden trees. Such interest and textures in those trees -- very appealing image.

1 Feb 2009 6:03pm

@Diane Schuller: Thank you, Diane. I froze my buns off shooting around the neighborhood for well over an hour that morning. The fog has a magical compelling effect on me.

You live a block away from this piece of paradise?!?! I'm green with envy. What a lovely image you've captured. I'm quite drawn to the moodiness of fog. This is so lovely with the mossy tree branches.

baobab from Cambridge, United States

beautiful shot - I like the lichen on the tree branch, and the path curving away into the mist. it invites the viewer in.
