A Ghostly Walk

Winter Fog

Here it is, another winter (2022) and I’m posting again after a fallow uninspiring summer. There is something about the winter that gets my juices flowing. While others are dreaming of white sands and bathing suits, I’m relishing the bracing fresh air and frostiness of fresh snow. It may have something to do with the muted colours and the stark uncluttered outlines of things. There is a peaceful hush over the land and the presence of other creatures is known primarily through their tracks in the snow. It is then I realize how not alone I am in this world. If I never see another living thing on my walks, it is obvious that many are about, sharing my trail or crossing my path. They may be unseen but certainly not unnoticed.

On this day, the weather had done a rapid switch from very cold to hardly cold at all. The result was fog and an overcast feeling of gloom with a claustrophobic atmosphere. Although all these paths are routine to me most days. This day was different It was like exploring a new planet with a sense of deja vu.

  1. Beautiful collection of foggy winter shots, Janet. There is something so inspiring about fog, which hides and reveals randomly . Thanks so much for the share and for posting again.

  2. I feel like I’m on this path with you Janet. Enjoying your enthusiasm for winter and this adventure on these country trails.

    Very inspiring walk.

  3. I like how the burnt orange brush stands out in the otherwise monochrome photos.
    Peaceful, melancholy but all the more touching for it.

    1. Thank you, Angus. Soft filtered light, like fog, always seems to make any colours pop. And as you noticed, there wasn’t a lot of colour that day.
