Dismal Days

The weather has been gray and dismal the past several days. While my river valley has been clear, fog has draped the causse obscuring the  horizon and lending a heavy feeling to the air. Monday morning when I drove to church, I had to put my lights on and slow down a bit. The narrow winding roads can be hazardous on clear days. You certainly don't want to be going fast when you meet a farmer on his tractor emerging out of the fog on a sharp turn! This bleak weather is not conducive to taking beautiful photos.

  1. What a charming scene! I like the grey and the fog. It looks like a painting.

  2. I agree with Books Personally's comment; it does look like a painting. The setting more than makes up for any inclement weather. In fact, they work well together to procuce a melancholy, romantic and dreamlike quality.
