Distinctly indistinct

You’ve seen pictures in this column of bald cypresses and bulrushes, but not the two together. You’ve also never seen a picture in these pages of the kind of weather shown here now, so you’ll understand why I couldn’t pass up this first opportunity for blog fog. Because the mist on the morning of December 9 made everything look so indistinct, I’ll point out that you can find the bulrushes forming a dark green band across the bottom of the picture; in the upper left is the most prominent of the bald cypresses, whose “needles,” like those in the close-up of August 11, have turned warm colors.

Although fog is rare in Austin, in the first half of December we had several. I photographed this one at Laguna Gloria, once a private estate on a cove of the Colorado River, but for decades now a home to an art museum.
