Shades of Gray, Gloucester Fog

We had fog this past Tuesday and Wednesday. The fog was so thick that the visibility was only 100 yards at times.

Here is a picture of a woman and her dog on Good Harbor Beach.
She was about 50 yards from me when I took the picture.

I love these shots. The fog really added subtance to the pictures.

Hi Steve,
Well that's foggy. It gives a very nice atmosphere for picture though. Very nice shots.

I like this misty pics Steve. But I think it is 50 'yards' not "years'. LOL!! I have done the same thing on occasions. :)

I love the fog. I must admit, I'm ready for some sunshine though.

That's some good fog alright. Really nice views though. Dogs are smart, he could probably SMELL that ball! I'm liking the second shot down of the gull. Gulls just have a spot in my heart, even if they are the rats of the ocean world.

Hi Roy, I ~almost~ worked Pea Soup into this post’s title! This fog was more like mashy peas.

Hi Kim, It sure does, but it detracts from the birding! I was almost on top of a female eider and the photo still came out hazy!

Thanks Chris.

Hi Joan, Thanks for catching the typo. That is why I have a photo blog. “If you can’t type too good, don’t type too much” is my motto.

Hi Hip Chick, I see you’re new to photo blogging. Good for you! Judging from the pictures, you probably had a sunny day on Saturday and a hot one today!

Hi Sharon! I like that shoot too. I was doing some experimenting and like the way that one turned out. I have to agree, I’ll bet that dog could have smelled the ball. It’s warm and sort of sunny today, I hope you get out!

Ginnymo said...

What interesting and great photos!! I love fog pictures!!

Kelly said...

...fog shots are difficult, but you make them look easy. The "feel" is nice.

Richard said...

Great series of the fog photos. Coming attractions...you may have started a new fad....lol.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Wow. You captured the essence and mood of your foggy day so beautifully!

It's been much too long since I've visited that area. And I do love it so, fog or not. It's all part of the charm. It's become quite touristy, though, yes?

VALKYRIEN said...

I can see I hav a lot of catching up to do! A lot of great photos here, fog, buildings, snakes, turtles and birds!

I am still working on getting good shots of birds...... :)

I know how dangerous the fog can be, but still it is lovely. Very nice pictures.

Steve B said...

Hey Ginnymo, You’ve come to the right place! Soon summer will be here and there will be lots of fog.

Hi Kelly, I’ll have to do a shooting fog video.

Hi Richard, I’m so behind on my posting. I still have photos from Palm Springs to post. If I promise to post them then by golly, I better deliver!

Pagan Sphinx, Gloucester has struck a balance between being marine industrial and tourist. Our tourist season lasts from the end of may to the first of September. Hint…come in September!!!!

Hi Valkyrien, I hope you get the bird thing figured out. I know what you mean about getting behind with viewing our friend’s blogs. I’m behind myself!

It isn’t as dangerous as it used to be NCMountainwoman. Now we have accurate charts, GPS, RADAR, and radios. Before the twentieth century, Gloucester used to lose hundreds to the sea.

I agree with Kallen. The fog really adds texture to the photos. I have some shots of Portland Head Light both in the fog and on a beautiful clear fall day.
The foggy ones are my favorite.
