A low line of shore was visible at first on the right between the movement of the waves and fog, but when we came further it was lost sight of, and nothing could be seen but the mist curling in the rigging, and a small circle of foam.

While waiting for an idea for a painting to gel, I thought I'd share a photo that I took last week. A northeasterly wind blew in fog which blanketed the coast and gave a surreal appearance, allowing small glimpses of land or ocean.

The tip of the distant land is just seen poking through the bank of fog and shrouding the closer land to the left.

Below the horizon is obliterated, truly making it seem as it you were indeed at the edge of the world with trust alone making you move forward.

How mysteriously lovely and dramatic.

Fog filled places remind me of Chinese and Japanese sumi-e. These
are so lovely.
