Maple in Fog

I’m afraid I will fall way behind with my comments today (depending on how Thanksgiving times-out), but I hope everyone has a good one… and a wonderful weekend as well!

  1. This is beautiful! I love how all the trees in the background have lost their leaves and here the red tree stands alone so lovely. SIG, I have a tree on my blog, too! And, it’s even red. Actually there’s more than one. I love this photo, because I actually like fog quite a bit! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! I hope you have a good one.

    • I’m really looking forward to checking that out! Sorry I got so far behind – I was away from my desk most of the day.
      I was really excited to see the fog, too! And it actually hung around a lot longer than I had expected… at one point my camera battery died, but I still had enough time to run home, re-charge and run back out for a few more shots (before it died again)… pretty cool!
      Thanks so much, B.F! I hope your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too!

  2. Ah! Love the New Girl quote. Quickly becoming a new favorite πŸ™‚ Gorgeous shot! Just woke up to find it super foggy outside my window. Of course it’s dark and the fog is glowing orange in the street lamps. A little too creepy Sleepy Hollow for my taste. Happy Happy Thanksgiving, dude.

    • One of my new favorites, too… not that I’m all quirky or anything… but… uh… yeah. πŸ™‚
      Sounds like the same situation we had here yesterday, Ms. N! Well, minus any headless horsemen. We actually had that last Wednesday.
      Thanks so much, Ms. N! I hope your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

  3. Now that is some kind of beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving. You are one of the ones that I am thankful for. You have really been a big encouragement to me over the past few years. Thanks.

    • Many thanks, Mr. L! I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
      You are always so kind, Bo… you are just as supportive as anyone out there, and know everyone sincerely appreciates that… as well as your incredible creativity and talents! Thank you, sir! Very much!

    • I was hoping if I roamed around the park long enough I would be fortunate enough to stumble across something like this… so I was very happy to find this tree!
      Thank you so much, Ms. C! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

  4. This photo shot is gorgeous…I love the fog and the appearance it gives to nature. Excellent work, Sig!
    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
    My best to you and Annabelle! πŸ™‚ xxx

    • Thank you so much, Deb! I was pretty excited to see the fog! It’s really wild how much it can change the appearance of things we see every day, isn’t it?!
      Thank you again, Deb! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

  5. That glorious red stands out so well against the grey sky. Makes me think of Hampstead Heath which is the closest we get to this in North London. Great shot πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Martin!
      The fog was SO thick here a few days ago (a bit rare for the area) that you would never guess how urban the area surrounding this little park is… it was WILD! Needless to say I was having a great time with it all!

  6. Stunning – absolutely stunning, Spilled Ink Guy. Beautiful…

    Hey, is that quote re gravy ‘blinders’ or cooking with ‘blinkers’ on? No need to answer – it’s thanksgiving πŸ™‚


    • Thank you so much! Very, very kind of you to say so!
      Hahaha… well… to tell you the truth… I’m not too sure… things go a bit blurry when I’m this stuffed with potatoes and gravy!

    • Why thank you, S.E! Very much!
      I think this might be about the first time I can remember having the opportunity to shoot in fog this dense… I was pretty excited when I woke-up to it!

  7. This is brilliant my great friend, you never
    fail to please everyone… I hope that your
    Tirkey eating holiday has been a very nice
    one SIG πŸ™‚ Have a fun rest of evening SIG
    and of course the rest of the weekend too πŸ™‚


    • And you never fail to leave an incredibly kind thought, A.G!
      I thank you, sir! Very much!
      Hard to believe how quickly the weekend has flown by already! I hope that you had a very good one, Andro!

      • It has been a rather wet and windy weekend my great friend, indeed it is still pounding down as I type this out and is forecast for the next few days 😦

        Mind you the rain is better than the white stuff πŸ™‚ lol

        Have a fun evening SIG πŸ™‚


  8. My mother would call that a brazen hussy of a tree, showing off like that! But how gorgeous!

    Happy Thanksgiving in retro SiG and thank you for all the fun along the way, fog or otherwise!

    • You are always incredibly kind, sir! I thank you!
      I was so happy to see the fog (and have a chance to take a few photos)! Usually by the time I notice it (and grab my camera) it’s gone already!

    • Hahaha… great.
      Now I’ve got ‘Poker Face’ in my head.
      And a ton of ‘Rounders’ dialogue. Not that I used to pretend I was a professional poker player, or anything. Which is particularly sad since I don’t even know how to play cards. Do you have any eights?!

  10. Nice shot. I “liked” it so it will appear on my website and people will come and visit you to see more. Thanks for stopping by my site and liking my post “Ring Around the Tower”.
