Weather Mood

One Word Photo Challenge – Foggy

Oh how much I’ve waited for this one to finally come up. From the moment I saw that the photo challenge will be about seasons and weather I knew which picture I wanted to post under “foggy”.

Back in Switzerland I didn’t like fog that much, probably because where I lived while studying it was foggy for most of the winter months. And that gets to you, especially if you know that further up in the mountains it’s a stunning day. Now I really love foggy days. Probably because we don’t get them that often and it gives me a reason to reflect on things. I don’t know why but I usually do, when it’s grey outside.
