Back in my Canada Days, I used to revel in Autumn’s flamboyance, but really, it’s not my season. It’s a great time to travel, though, which often has drawbacks for happy snappers like me. I want sweeping panoramic shots of those magnificent mountains!
There are times, of course, when the fog and mist enhance the romantic aura of a place – nowhere more than my beloved Venice, where the quiet, blanketed city smiles serenely through the icy mist of late November
… and there’s the mystery and allure of misty mornings in the tropics
Thanks to Ailsa’s Travel Theme , which got me thinking of Mist.
Ahhh, those photos of Venice, so disturbingly beautiful. Do you read Donna Leon novels?
Isn’t she so – always 🙂 No, I’ve not read any, heard of her even! I see she’s enormously prolific, but crime isn’t my thing Francesca, so I can see how I’d have missed her. Lucky woman, living there 25 years or so!
The misty view makes Venice look so serene…which is why you call her…….
gorgeous misty scenes, beautiful Venice, those elusive Swiss peaks, and then south-east Asia … what a feast Meredith, I am glad to be inspired by travel themes, and glad you were too!
Venice in November; quite wonderful. Your pictures make me want to catch the next plane and return to your “beloved city”.
Simply fabulous, those shots of Venice. We were there too, in winter; but had nothing but blue skies. Myhusband, a photographer, would probably have preferred the season of mist and mellow fruitfulness … 😉
Splendid, the mist adds a whole new dimension. Do you have photos of inside Halong?
Wonderful photos, of course. I love the mist, hushed mornings where the day seems on hold until the sun shines through.
Truly wonderful photographs. Venice seemed to pose for them.

What a lovely series, Meredith. I have been to Venice twice, but never on a misty day–looks like a beautiful watercolor painting!
Great images. I’ve been to Venice on Christmas Day (not my choice) and everything was mostly closed, so it gave me lots of time to look at the ‘nebbia’ with no-one in site. Gorgeous.
These beautiful photos like poetic paintings!
Mysterious and stunning images.
Adore the mountains bathed in mist, and your dreamy Venetian scenes almost make me want to reschedule!
There is something magical about mist. It can make anything seem mysterious and romantic. Your mist montage is wonderful.
Beautiful images of Venice.
Beautiful photos! I can’t decide which one is my favorite. They are all nice!
I have been in Venice many times, but one time was special when I went there by train in November, the city was bathed in misty fog and I saw only locals and lots of cats out there. Glad you had a wonderful experience as well, thank you for sharing the magic.
So glad to have prompted such magical memories for you Cornelia 🙂
The mist gives Venice such a mysterious feel.
Venice in the mist! My favorite
Yours too, eh? 🙂
Such wonderful photos, Meredith, made even more so by the mist. As you know, I’m very partial to Venice but I’ve never seen it shrouded in mist before. It’s even more beautiful. Thank you for sharing these photos with us.
Only partial to Venice, John? Don’t let the sprites know – they demand total and abject fealty, in my experience! So glad to unveil a new face of La Serenissima for you. 🙂
Fabulous misty shots all, Meredith! 🙂
Remarkable photos and blog. Congratulations. Best regards, Aquileana 😛
Thank you! 🙂
