The job of fog

“In nature, everything has a job. The job of the fog is to beautify further the existing beauties!” 
― Mehmet Murat ildan

Our world has been shades of pale gray for days. This morning during chores I saw three big, beautiful Western gray squirrels cavorting round a big maple in the sheep lot (under observation of Blake, who eventually walked over and banished them from his kingdom). I managed to get two of them in the same frame, but shooting through the fog gave disappointing results.

But as I continued doing chores, I spotted wee details beautified (and best biggified) by the fog's condensing moisture, frozen overnight. There were bits of wool on fences,


and webs.

Chores done, I headed back to the house feeling richer by far!

That's it for today from . . .

Beautiful! I don't like fog, and I particularly don't like driving in it! But today was gray here (not foggy) and the wind was blowing so I hibernated. Tomorrow should be calm, and I can do outside stuff!
