A Foggy Day in Oberlin
October 17, 2021
Earlier this month we were blessed with magnificent morning fog. I skipped my usual workout that day to walk around my neighborhood lest the fog lift while I was curling my biceps.
1 Rock Pond intervened between the foliage in front of me and the trees in the distance.
2 You’ll be forgiven for seeing faces in the tree trunk. Two of my friends have—one saw an owl, one an old man. I intended neither.
3 Grasses and cattails abound in my neighborhood.
4 I don’t understand where the ditch water picked up its blue color; I thought the sky was pretty much white. Maybe there was a hole in the fog and clouds.
5 Here is one of my takes on Island Pond that day.
6 And another.
7 And another.
8 Is there ever a foggy day without dew-spangled spider webs?
9 Even though photographing them is cliché, I can’t resist.
10 Especially when they are this good.
11 I found an informative video online of a spider building its web.
