This is a photo of the sunrise which just begged me to take a photograph, albeit with my cell phone camera, as RSon had to take my camera to site with him.
It felt weird looking at the rising sun, which was only obscured by the mist, as opposed to an eclipse, or a veil of smoke from a veld fire. Rather the mist than the fire though, any day. I was amazed that the sun was able to shine so brightly through the mist - a seemingly perfect orb just suspended above the skyline.
Even the insects didn't escape the effects of the mist.
A spiders web, which I know had formed overnight, glistened with drops of water - yesterday I had been working in exactly that area - but that's for another posting... :)
And the locust climbing up the walls with it's young on its back...
|We had seen a locust the day|
before with two young on it's
back - in order of size as well :)
|Hmmm, I wonder what|
these two slugs are up to...?
Don't you find that when mist drapes itself over everything, and surrounds you as you venture out into it, that your entire perception of your day ahead, yourself and even your awareness of life seems to change? It's somehow mystical, cold and damp, and yet familiar, all enclosing and safe. A quiet peacefulness seems to envelope everything.
|RMan spent the previous day recycling|
a clients old steel balustrade - which was in
perfectly good condition,
and perfect for our application :)
The mist remained until noon, gathered tightly into the valleys, refreshing and replenishing all the plants there with its life giving liquid.
I felt so privileged - to witness such natural simple beauty and to experience such serenity.
