The picture above was just snapped with the Blackberry camera, and slightly brightened to bring out the red berries in the foreground and to show the wonderful tones in the quality of the light. When you just look without seeing, it all seems to be just black-and-white outside, but there are these gorgeous tones hidden in the background of the day.
When I was a child, growing up in the semi-desert area of the province in the middle of South Africa, we didn't see much fog or rain, other than wild thunderstorms which I loved. I remember the few times we drove through mountains and ran into fog, I always thought it was like being in a cloud. I had a little green plastic cup and would hold that out the window, trying to scoop up some of the softness to eat. What a disappointment to always just find some drops in the cup!
Now, when we have a foggy day as the temperatures change here in Southern Ontario, it often occurs to me that what we see, is never what really is. What an adventure it is to live and discover each day!
