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

@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.
Lovely foggy morning

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

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.
la nature nous prend dans ses bras de brume !

You've captured a magical mist.
1 Feb 2009 2:56pm
Those trees surrounded by fog are very good subjects. Those branches seem to be from a story book.
1 Feb 2009 3:07pm
Wow! An awesome photograph!
1 Feb 2009 4:10pm
Lovely atmospheric shot Jack.
1 Feb 2009 4:55pm

1 Feb 2009 5:30pm
@Charles: Thank you, Charles. This is a very peaceful and meditative place to be in the early morning fog.
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.
I like the marticular atmosphere you have captured in this photograf.

Almost in fairy-tale land. A pleasurable sight!. Amazing capture!

The branches shapes are really great and the fog gives a nice mood.

Wet damp mist, trees dripping... I know how that feels. A beautiful shot, well taken.

The wetness enhances the colors of the greens and the mist gives a lovely magical feel, looking forward to tomorrows shot

le brouillard estompe le paysage, une aquarelle ornée du dessin fantastique des branches, les couleurs de l'automne adoucies de brumes..
3 Feb 2009 8:35pm
Nice composition. Would look good as a monochrome also.
4 Feb 2009 2:37am
5 stars from me!
4 Feb 2009 3:52pm
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.
5 Feb 2009 12:20am
beautiful shot - I like the lichen on the tree branch, and the path curving away into the mist. it invites the viewer in.
5 Feb 2009 5:12pm
This is an amazing composition. A real beauty. The whole scene is just magnificent.
