30 Photos 30 Days: #17 – Misty Morning

rough road and mist

Misty Morning

The mist rolled in quickly, growing thicker and obscuring the land and waterscape as it advanced. The old concrete road out to my father-in-law’s village is rough and broken now, and dotted with huge puddles, but the view is as astonishing as ever. I snapped this before the mist grew too thick.

    Superb shot Chris – I love photos like these; poetry in a single image. I see the potential for a Lytro field camera. I’m still exploring the advantages of mine (only had it for a month) and am amazed at the technology in one small device.

      Thanks, Susan! I’d love to take a Lytro out for a test run one of these days. I’m still in love with my old SLR that I bought 2nd hand in the eighties though. I’d use it a lot more if it wasn’t so heavy.

    so pretty…. one wants to travel down the path and find out what’s ahead

    • chris says:

      Even though I know what’s ahead, I still feel that way when I travel along this road. Sadly, it’s deteriorating so much that it may not be possible to travel along it in another year.
