Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Short and sweet


I’m on a quick ‘up north’ trip with a friend. We wanted to make a specific destination in time for sunset, figuring the lowering sun would enhance what remaining color was hanging on the trees.

It was sunny when I left home, but as I headed north more and more clouds accumulated. I wasn’t worried, I figured the sunset would be more interesting with clouds.

But as I pulled within four miles of our destination the sky turned a blank grey and it began to rain. Fog floated up between the trees.

Not looking good for finding color.

I figured trekking through a wet field to the top of a hill in the rain to see the nonexistent sunset was going to be a waste of time. But I’ve learned to never give up, especially when you’re so close. So we trekked.

And as we began to top the hill I knew we were right to make the trip; I could see color out there in the fog.

See what’s over the hill?

And when we got to the top?

Stunning, even in the rain.


It’s supposed to be sunny here tomorrow and we’ll have a few hours to explore before we head home.

Can’t wait to see what we find.

On the road again.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Oh, but I do love fog photos, Dawn. These did not disappoint.

  3. Wondering how far up north you got. Nice pics!


  4. I’m glad you persevered — just imagine how pretty this would have been before the frost (and on a nice, sunny day!)


  5. Beautiful! I love fog so I would have been trekking around up there, too. 🙂


    • Yes, it was pretty cool. The pictures don’t show the extent of the fog you could see from the top of the hill. There were pockets of thick fog among the golden trees. Very very cool.
