Fog

One day it is our turn to be surrounded by fog, to look out the window into white. The next day we view other people's fog that is about to descend.

  2. We have had a LOT of foggy mornings recently. Fog which doesn't lift until ten or eleven.

    1. EC, perhaps playing havoc with morning flights.

  3. Wonder what those in the distant highrise could see?
    Like EC a lot of the recent fog out our way hasn't burnt off till mid morning making the day seem colder than it actually was.
    Can't say the view from your placed isn't changeable can you !!

    Oh and The Golfer recalled he was on about £30 a week the last year we were in the UK

    1. Cathy, rather depends which way they are facing. They would have closer views of the Dandenongs, some would see the city and some the bay. That bit higher, perhaps the fog is a bit heavier and takes longer to lift? That's not a too bad income for 1972.

  4. I think I'd enjoy sitting there watching fog for a while. But not too long, there are books to be read.

    1. River, I expect once engrossed in a book, you would not notice much at all.

  5. The French always talk about English fog, but I'd never seen fog like we have here; in fact we refer to it as TFF (typical french fog).

    1. Cro, because we are in a big city, we no longer get the fogs we used to, the kind where you can't see one metre in front of you. But you in the countryside don't have the human made heat and so perhaps that is why you get heavy fog.

    2. ahh Andrew, you also remember the fogs we used to get!! Great! I didn't know if my memory was accurate, or if I was confusing it with my London experiences.

    3. Hels, yes, in the late 70s and 80s. Media at times now uses the phrase pea souper, but they are not pea souper fogs like we used to experience at times.

  6. Fog for photography is for me awesome.
    I got up at 4.30am Tuesday and took son to work (his care was being repaired) but didn't see any fog was a little disappointed even though it was dark there were lots of street lights where I went and it was rather clear but at sunrise it rained..

    1. Margaret, I hope that doesn't happen too often, that is up at 4.30. What a shame there wasn't a rewarding fog.

  7. Crikey Andrew ..... we had fog like that at my beach yesterday. When Dad threw the ball I couldn't see where it went.

    1. Charlie, a sea fog? You probably couldn't be bothered looking for the ball.

  8. I love dense fog. I've seen a lot of it living in Oregon, especially when on the coast. It's like a cloak of invisibility. Comforting, cool.

    1. Strayer, sea fog can be nice because times it can be quite warm and still foggy.

  9. Other people's fog is much more photogenic 😊 love this shot, nice one Andrew!
