These trees may not look like special woods but, for me they are the keepers of my childhood. A place my soul wanders and resides. This foggy morning held a stillness in the woods. It reminded me to sit in the silence and breathe. ❤
This winter in Michigan has been pretty different from previous years. We started off with a later snowfall and shortly after it has since melted away, which has made for a lot of foggy days. Luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to capture the mysterious winter fog on two of my days off <3.
On this particular day I had to get work done on my car, on my way back I saw this scene and quickly ran home to pickup my camera. This inspiring moment lead me to a spontaneous long adventure of aimlessly exploring the back roads. When I stopped on the quiet roads, I made sure to put on my car’s hazard lights, just in case.
I was captivated by the sight of this fog. Looking deeper into the reason behind its allurement I came to an interesting discovery. Fog hides what can normally be seen and shows something that normally is not seen, water in a sort of gaseous state. No longer a liquid(rain) or a solid (snowflake), but suspended in-between the heavens and the earth. There is still a mystery to it though, that I still can’t define…
As the fog lifted I continued my three hour adventure and ended it peacefully at the “John Wilson Park” in Athens ❤ where I left my snow hearts trademark.
Woods Shrouded in White
I won’t go into too much detail about this day other than hearing the rain lightly fall was breath taking! That and I really learned a lot about my camera’s lighting settings.
Do you ever have moments when you feel one with your surroundings? I tend to get little “messages” from nature when I connect to these places in time….
When I was taking pictures, I happened to gaze on something in between the double paned glass. I laughed when my focus came upon a water droplet that had dried in the shape of a heart ❤ Wow!
With the holidays quickly approaching , I have decided to take a short break and will begin again on the 3rd of January. May you all have a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year! ^_^ ❤
I was driving home after a wonderful morning with a friend when I noticed how much the fog had enveloped everything. I thought how cool the pictures would be at the arboretum. Almost passing up this moment because I didn’t have my good camera, I decided my phone’s camera would be good enough. The moment was here and I didn’t want it to slip away just because the pictures wouldn’t turn out “Perfect“. I’m glad I did because I would have missed out on soo much fun and love.
Towards the middle of my adventure I made one of my famous snow hearts ❤ ❤ Odin had a good time too 😉 ~ ❤ We even came across deer tracks, which Odin followed enthusiastically. The rest of my time out and about though was pretty much absorbed in silence.
When I left the arboretum I picked up where I left off at home. I grabbed my camera and went out to my favorite spot.
My connection with this tree is beyond words ❤ ! I’m not sure which one I like best, lol.
A Reflection From Nature
As I walked back nature reflected my snow heart, from earlier, back at me four times the amount of love that I gave ;). I’m really glad I didn’t let the fear of my phone’s camera not being good enough get in the way of all that I experienced today. If you ever feel the need to capture or express anything, take that moment…. the choice is yours~ ❤ !
The snow was melting and the air was filled with fog. Since I’ve never taken pictures in this type of weather before I thought I’d check it out. And I loved it!
Water has always been one of my muses.
One of my favorite pictures was of the tree with a foggy backdrop, which one is your favorite?
When you’re alone but feel one with everything.
