'Encumbered by the morning mist'..



"...careful the morning lest it wake from slumber the city 
half-encumbered by the morning mist..." John Geddes.
After a 7.05am appointment earlier this week.. peak traffic time on the freeway meant I had to set off just after 6am (see last shot) and even then I juuuust made it :) The reward for my before sun-up jaunt was a stop in at Kings Park on the way home in time to enjoy the spectacle of low clouds swirling through and around the tops of the city skyscrapers. Early morning is the best don't you think! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe... P.s. bit different from last two colourful posts :)

  2. I missed some serious dramatic cloud on the way home tonight, a thouderstorm. You could see it heading towards the village I live in and the rain coming down along with forked lightening. Got soaked when I got out the car to go in the house.

  5. Grace, those low clouds do make for dramatic cityscape photos. You did well to stop in the park for these shots.

  6. I like all three of these but that first shot has something special; some mysterious, almost haunting aura, a feeling that something big is about to happen, perhaps something bad, but no one knows what to do about it. Frame it and hang it!!!

  18. Oh, my, Grace, looks as grey as over here!
    I take off at 05:12 am on workdays - and the "sun" is out and about, when she´s there. That, too, I love about summer!

  19. I love seeing the clouds hanging low over the tall buildings so these photos are perfect. I agree about early morning. In fact, I'm sitting outside writing this. I'm taking advantage of cooler weather early in the morning by taking my laptop out to the patio to do my blogging. In a couple more weeks it will be too hot in the am to do even that.
