Fog in November

Fog in November, trees have no heads,
Streams only sound, walls suddenly stop
Half-way up hills, the ghost of a man spreads
Dung on dead fields for next year's crop.
I cannot see my hand before my face,
My body does not seem to be my own,
The world becomes a far-off, foreign place,
People are strangers, houses silent, unknown.
- Leonard Clark

Amazing photograph!

Fog partially covers and partially reveals - that is the beauty.

Thanks
This photo was taken just a couple of weeks ago at Southwest Harbor, Acadia Park Maine. As the boat began to turn, it simply called out to my camera :)

What a wonderful photo - the mood, the composition, the light! It evoked memories of Maine for me immediately when it came on the screen. You always find the perfect poem, too. Thank you for giving me a lovely moment of quiet in this busy morning. May you continue to have beauty call out to your camera.

It was quite foggy here this morning.

I love this photo and am glad the ship was calling out to you to capture the moment.

I like that photo very much. Thought that it might be a Maine shot.

It looks very cold and gray there... And definitely spooky! Maine is an absolutely wonderful place for landscape photography.

your photography always makes such emphatic statements - this is no exception.

I like fog. It makes everything seem mistical and surreal.

Oh, this is wonderful--words and picture. I work on the 37th floor of a Seattle skyscraper and have some spectacular fog views of the city and harbor sometimes. It's ethereal and mystical. Your photo captures that.
