Day 156 #Project365

156-365 drops.jpg

The morning was thick in mist. The air was filled with tiny invisible drops. I love this kind of morning. Unlike the rain where you always have to wait until it’s stop completely to walk around and take photos, you can just walk right out in the mist, enjoy the world in a more subdued setting and maintain relatively dry. I stopped at the park and was glad to find that everything looked like they were bejewelled by beautiful tiny diamonds.

The background was almost completely white as it was still thick with the mist even at 9 o’clock. I don’t think the sun will even come out and play today.

I am sharing two photos in today’s post. The second one I decided to post because it costed me my pants, the knee parts got totally soaked from kneeling on wet grass. The subject, the long bejewelled grass, was leaning  on the low wooden fence in the park, so to get the right angle I had to either lie down completely on my belly, or just kneeled down and crouched really low. I chose the lesser of the two wetness possibilities, and couldn’t say I regretted it.

Day 139 #Project365

 

 

 

139-365 bald tree139-365 oval tree

Today’s post features two of my favorite trees. They are two completely different trees, as you can see above. I have posted a photo of each tree in previous months, but again, as they are my favorites,  they will be featured probably many more times than you like or care.

The bald tree I see everyday during the weekdays as it was located between my kids’ two schools. I took this photo around 9AM after the school drop-off, when the fog was still very thick and the temperature only reached 1 degree. I took the photo with my iPhone and used the internal photo app inside another app called Path for the post processing.

The other tree is the tree I fondly named ‘my’ oval tree. It’s a beautiful healthy tree that’s located at the Oval (field with athletic tracks) across the street from my house. The photo was taken around 5PM when the weather was nice with beautiful patchy clouds patterns and around 13 degrees (we reached the top of 16 degrees today, beautiful and sunny).

This was a typical autumn day in Canberra. Foggy cloudy freezing and depressing morning does not always mean an equally depressing cold day ahead. Just like the day we had today.  The warmth from the sun and a beautiful blue sky always makes up for the freezing and ‘appalling’ misty morning.

Day 122 #Project365

122-365 foggy morning

This was the view that greeted me as I opened the door leading to the deck at the back of the house. Eerie looking view thanks to the fog. Usually we could only see white everywhere, but this time it seemed that the sun wouldn’t be beaten without a fight as I could see it shone through the mist. It was 1 degree Celsius.

Day 81 #Project365

81-365 leafless

Those in Canberra who slept through the morning and only woke up at noon would not believe it if I told them that this was how the morning looked like today. We woke up, we opened the blind, and still we thought we were a bit blind. It was white everywhere. We haven’t had a morning like this for so long, it took me awhile to move away from the window.

This favourite dead tree of mine stands in the area between my kids’ schools, so yes, I see it everyday, and yes, everyday I stop and look at it. Today I thought it looked quite special with all the fog covering trees in the background. Look even closer you would see a bird hanging on one of the top branches. The doom and gloom of it was heartbreakingly wonderful. I was glad I took a moment to take this photo, and not even waiting for the lady to finished buckled her child in and drove away with her car, because as soon as the fog lifted (which was really abrupt), everything looked normal again. The sun was back shining, it even got quite so hot in the afternoon that the chilled misty morning became like a distant memory.
