Time to walk through the maze haze again.

Love it, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray.
Just gorgeous dah'link! You captured so many wonderful images from that misty morn'! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. This was the next day...without frost. Only fog that day but that was more than enough for me.
That sounds about right.
Ginnie Hart: This is not going to be an easy/fun week in the USA, Michael, on many levels. (sigh)

Looks squidgy, Ginnie - hope you have your boots on!
Ginnie Hart: Squidgy is a good word, Lisl. Thankfully we didn't have to step far off the road to take our pics that day.

Jolie ambiance avec ce brouillard.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martine. I LOVE the fog.

A distinctive landscape Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I suppose I could say "more Dutch you cannot get," then, Chris! smile

'It's a small world'..I love these views. One of the many 'faces' of the Dutch polder. These gates ware patiently waiting for the cows to walk through.....
Ginnie Hart: This is "heaven" for me out in the polder, Astrid. You know how much I love this place, fog or no fog!
Belle photo ..merci
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine.

You know how I love the mist - and this on a frosty day - a wonderful, atmospheric image!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I know, Philine. This was the day after our big frost, so it wasn't the same, but the fog was very heavy.

Yeah! It's now my favourite day of the week smile I like the very faint hint of trees almost lost in the mist.
Ginnie Hart: Those of us who are retired are very lucky, Alan, aren't we!!! And yes, that's exactly how foggy it was that day!
Looks lovely Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. And to think you were out there but without all that fog. What a difference it makes.

I see there is a difference between 'fog' and 'mist' - I have to study my dictionary.
Ginnie Hart: I just checked what the difference is, Philine: "The only difference between mist and fog is visibility. The phenomenon is called fog if the visibility is one kilometre (1,100 yards) or less. In the UK the definition of fog is visibility less than 100 metres (for driving purposes, UK Highway Code rule 226), while for pilots the distance is one kilometre." So, there we have it.

baaaaah!! i'm calling the sheep!! a maze and a haze, lovely picture, my friend!
Ginnie Hart: Calling all sheep!!! HA! They didn't come running to us this time, no matter how many times Astrid whistled. Thanks.
The cows must be still in bed.
Ginnie Hart: It was still early morning and Astrid decided they were still in the barn! Good call, Mary.

Très belle ambiance.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Anne.
It's not unlike the area near our East coast in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire that we call the Fens with flat land and waterways which we call dykes or drains.
Ginnie Hart: Well, then. A bit of Dutchiness where you live, Brian! smile
Similar here, at least you have found the motivation to get out with the camera
Ginnie Hart: We love the fog out in the polder, Martin. Besides, our favorite pannenkoeken restaurant is out there. smile
jolie campagne brumeuse!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: It's one of my favorite places, JP. Merci.
My mind has been foggy this Monday... smile
Ginnie Hart: It happens to the best of us, Larry! smile
A very evocative scene, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.

Lovely ....
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard.
Still no snow?
Same here! wink

It snowed a little bit the other day. Not enough for me to make a Slushie.
Ginnie Hart: We've awakened twice thus far to a thin layer of snow this winter, LC, but nothing to speak of. It's cold enough right now, so my fingers are still crossed!

Lovely misty morning smile
Ginnie Hart: It really was, Cherry. We were both in heaven. Thanks.
Another beautiful misty shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Misty mornings are great for walking and taking pix too I see.
Ginnie Hart: You don't always see much or clearly, Jacquelyn, but that's definitely the allure!
I can just smell the freshness... and to inhale that mist! So good for the soul!
Ginnie Hart: Good for the soul, Robin. You nailed it! Thank you.
Just a beautiful atmosphere Ginnie. I like !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Marie. I'm a sucker for mist/fog!
another pleasing shot, Ginnie. i am sure you have a large stash of fog+polder shots? or perhaps currently building one.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. I did get quite a nice collection that day, Ayush, for sure. smile
