Through The Mist



When we were in the mountains on Thursday, just admiring the snow-capped peaks....

Snow-capped Rockies

....when it suddenly got very misty (or cloudy - it could have been low cloud).

My camera rebelled when I tried to use autofocus, refusing to take any photos at all, so I just had to put it on manual (infinity lock!) and hope for the best.

It started as a light mist in the background of my pictures...

But it quickly became the main feature of the landscape:

No visibility

This is my favourite shot of the rolling mists filling the valley; you can almost see the motion as it sweeps across:

Lovely pics! I hope this doesn't post twice, Rachel, (I just noticed that Google didn't accept the first time.) I wondered if you had ever seen the mist rolling in to San Francisco bay on a bright and sunny day, when the water and the sky are both bright blue? First time I saw it, it was like a big white snake and took me very much by surprise.

Wonderful mist pictures and you have a sharp eye for when the automatic one fails!
