August 18, 2019; Estoril, Portugal. Balmy morning on the balcony, enjoying coffee with my wife’s brother and family. It had been a sunny morning, but as we got into the second cup, the fog came in.

This is different. Where I come from, a second cup makes the fog go away.

  1. The way you’ve framed it, with those great sweeps of fog, the city appears to be a miniature, if not mythical. It could be the setting for quite a tale: think the Brontë sisters meet Stephen King.

    Visually, it brought to mind Mont Saint-Michel. It’s a beautiful image.

  3. I’m very late to the party, having been away, but oh, what rolling fog this is! Or was. Beautifully done – I like the slight detail in the buildings, it’s just right.
