To See What You Can't See

It's been a busy weekend, but I did get a couple chances to slip over to Great Meadows, between projects, tasks and planned activities. This morning when I awoke the view out the window was grey fog. I thought there must be some interesting photos to be had in the fog.

Some quick mental calculations yielded that if I hurried, I could get in a quick half hour of photography before heading to church. So here is the best that I could capture in that 30 minutes.

Looking back up the drive. I love that S curve.

A spot to contemplate, what you can't see in the impoundments

The closer you got to the impoundments, the more restricted your visibility and fewer interesting shadows on your horizon.

Most of the geese were grounded

A few geese must be IFR capable

The cool damp fog, covered the cobwebs with dew. On a normal day, if you are standing at the right angle you can often see the silk threads shining in the sun. Covered with dew, you realize that they blanket most all the plants on the dike.
