    Mist might be a over-statement, it's more of a 'marine layer' around these parts.

    However - it provides lovely soft lighting, and often hangs around through mid-morning at this time of year.

    The buggy behind the bike is not for kids, but for carrying surfboards (of course)

    Looks good Chris. Mist, fog and a wee bit of sun behind is the light I have often got some success with. That blue is gorgeous with the mist.

    Thanks chaps - the over-all feel was wonderful with the soft light and color palette - very serene

    I actually look forward to cloudy/misty days now as I see them providing more 'mood' than sunny day shots

    Any issues with dull photos have been resolved with better PP tools - got to love new technology! :)

    Wonderfully soft colours Chris. Very 50s! And a super composition with the faint tower to the left and the horizon extending from the deck. Great stuff. :)

    Didn't know you was a cycling/surfer, Chris. How do you keep the camera dry? (It looks an awfy wee bike by the way,...perhaps your legs are just wee stubs?:p)

    Nice shot though. Love the mist/swamp gas. Up here we call that a Catalina Eddy.

    Catalina Eddy! I thought he ran a shop selling the warmest beer in town! ;)

    I am lost for words! :D

    Is that due to the very idea of the warmest beer in town or have you taken a sip of Brian's new super-cooled beverage?! At -269°C it does tend to chap the lips somewhat! ;)

    no, the chapped lips are from the swamp gas.

    Fabulous image Chris but not what I was expecting. For a moment there I thought Misty Morning was your porn star name back in the day when you were young, stupid and needed the cash.

    You've seen that film too?! Too many lonely evenings in hotel rooms away from home! ;)

    You know what I think it's getting that way. There is only so many cups of tea you can sip on a street side cafe.

    I was young and foolish, and can't remember any of it apparently! :D
