A "Fog-Sunny" Transition

Here is the progression of the scene we saw two days ago, panned just a bit to the left and a bit later in the morning. And again, believe it or not, this is a color image. Here. the fog has just begun to dissipate and the sun starts to do it's job. Later the day became mostly sunny until late afternoon when clouds returned, but not so much fog.

The entire Pacific Northwest and British Columbia are filled with daily scenes that are just phenomenal. Although it can be completely grey during certain times of the year, usually, the sun will come in and out of the clouds at the edges of the day. If one is prepared, some awesome images can be captured almost on a daily basis. For photography enthusiasts, it becomes a paradise filled with "photo opportunities!" I highly recommend a visit to the Northwest and/or British Columbia if you can possibly make it.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
