Sky? What sky?

This scene struck me enough that I had to photograph it - two people, with lawn chairs and their morning coffee, sitting above the water and looking out intently - at fog so thick that both water and sky were utterly invisible. I haven't the faintest idea what held them so spellbound, I couldn't see anything at all, just an overwhelming whiteness so thick you could practically hold it in your hand.

Maybe they are waiting for the fog to lift and don't want to miss it.

Robin said...

Probably, but they would have had quite a long wait that morning, and coffee long since ice cold.

Maybe it was the coffee! Great candid shot...I would have stopped to take the photo too.
Happy weekend!

to each his own . . .

fun shot though, I'm glad you happened by to get it.

quilly said...

Optimism!

Either that or they'd paid for the vacation and the blue and were dang well going to enjoy it anyway.

Ellie said...

This is how my dream retirement looks like! Perfect vision for the future!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

VERY cool shot. I bet seeing it in person was quite surreal.

imom said...

It's pretty quiet in the fog, maybe that was the appeal?! Great shot either way.

Rob Inukshuk said...

I haven't the foggiest idea, but the coffee and company must have been good!

Sometimes that overwhelming whiteness is all you need to calm your soul! Good shot.

Hi, Robin. This is a really fun shot. It reminds me of some unfortunate commercials in the U.S. for a pharmaceutical product. The elderly but apparently romantic couple is situated in two separate bathtubs with their backs to the TV audience. I always wonder "what happens next?" How on earth do those arthritic old people clamber out of those deep tubs and into the presumed embrace that the commercial indicates might be coming soon???

Fun shot ... perfect title ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Carver said...

What a great shot. It would be fun making up a story about what they were seeing.

Mountain view?
Beautiful.

Happy weekend!

It looks like a good time. You captured a mood very nicely.

Love this one. The mirror image chairs look like they're floating.

Kirigalpoththa said...

Very interesting..love this photo!!

Carolyn Ford said...

That is a great photo! Maybe they are waiting for friends so they all can watch the fog? Great moody shot!

bermudabluez said...

Great Shot! I'm thinking maybe they were lost in each other's thoughts?

eileeninmd said...

Cool shot, they could be enjoying the sounds of the water.

people are strange.

An awesome shot of the oddness of others.

Lene said...

Cool! And for once - I can`t say beautiful coulors of the sky - but beautiful colours at the chairs ;)

Have a nice day :)

moneythoughts said...

It could have been Ellsworth Kelly enjoying the white of the canvas too.

Daryl said...

Now I dont feel so bad ... my sky shot, which is a cheat since its really a shadow/reflection shot, has the same color sky ... love this shot!

Julia Smith said...

LOL! Only on the east coast, eh?

Arija said...

A perfect place to meditate with no distractions...

Miss Chevious said...

anymommy said...

It kind of looks like they are sitting on the moon!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Perhaps they were meditating? Or having a serious discussion. The chairs certainly brighten the landscape.

Della said...

Sp cool!

Japa said...

Could they be asleep already while waiting for the sky to show its beauty?

Jientje said...

But the bright colors of the two chairs make this a very interesting picture!

Mimi said...

Maybe it's more relaxing to look at "nothing"?
And it certainly made an interesting picture!

Kcalpesh said...

How relaxed that is! Great shot but it's already made me lazy! And, it's just Monday :-(

Carletta said...

It's funny because I thought they were looking at rock. :)

I'm catching up from the weekend Robin and hope you had a great one!

Mojo said...

Simple enough. They were waiting for you to come along and capture that splash of color against the white of the fog.

Isn't it obvious?
