A foggy morning walk...

"Living without faith is like driving in a fog." (Proverb)

What a perfect morning for a walk in the cemetery!

When I got out of bed and opened the shutters several weeks ago, 
I could hardly see the neighbor's house across the street due to the thick fog...

... and I knew exactly where I wanted to go.

I hastily pulled on some clothes, grabbed my camera, and headed to the cemetery. After visiting my mom and dad's grave, I started off on my walk.

Far from being "scary," as horror movies like to depict, the fog in the cemetery was beautiful and peaceful.

The roads that I could walk blindfolded, because I know them so well, 
disappeared into the thick mist and fog.

I encountered only one other person that morning, a gentleman walking his dog.

Aside from that, I was alone with my thoughts and prayers.

I wish the conditions were like this more often.

Foggy mornings and dusk are my favorite times to walk in the cemetery.

The Canada geese seem to agree. I'll share more photos of my feathered friends in a future post.

Wishing you all a safe and Happy Halloween...

... if I don't post again before Thursday.

Beautiful pictures. I love walking in the fog as long as it is a safe place to walk. When I was little we went to the cementary once a month to see my older sisters grave. I feel a since of peace there.

The photographs are very atmospheric, if I may make a pun. There seems to appear a quiet serenity in the cemetery.

Amazing photos! I couldn't stop going over them! I could see a wall with these hanging in a row. A wonderful mood setter for quiet thoughts.

Tranquil and beautiful… there is nothing that quite compares to the unique peacefulness of a foggy morning. Best wishes to you too.

Hi Donna,
I just got done reading a post about cemetery walks over at Passion for the Past with Historical Ken. How funny, two in a row!
Your photos are so pretty, and you're right-the cemetery is very peaceful looking in all that fog.
Happy Hallowe'en to you,
Gina

The foggy pictures are beautiful...kinda spooky, but yet peaceful at the same time.
