~ A Pearly Veil

    Newer Older

    a pearly veil,
    now, I can see

    cape arago
    on the oregon coast
    near coos bay.

    one sunday morning,
    i awake at 5 am and
    drive to the cape
    only to find it shrouded in fog.

    i sit in the pickup for an hour
    sipping coffee
    and listening to the sound of the surf.
    the tide is out.
    finally, i give up
    and drive back
    to the Sea Basket
    in Charleston,
    where i eat bacon and eggs
    at the counter.

    i listen to the friendly conversation
    of men who fish for a living.
    there is steam on the inside of the windows
    that overlook the boats in the harbor.

    i drive back out to the cape
    and hike down to the beach
    the fog had lifted
    and i can see.

      Good depth of field and nice forground. I would suggest cropping so the horizon is not in the middle of the frame. Anyway, nice image. COMMENTSCOMMENTSCOMMENTS

      Wonderful atmosphere. I like the green of moss, the intense light of frog and also the story.

      This has a great murky feel to it and the moss covered stones really add a nice tone to the fog. Nicely done.
