    WOW! This is outstanding Monika! Like the way the ramp takes you to the water and into the fog. Super reflections of the boats. Perfect!!

Thank you very much for your comment, Robin! I remember that day when I took this photoÖfog and rain, and me and my camera hidden under an umbrella. I saw this place, while some people where fishing there, but I took a walk by the lake and shot it when they left. The calmness was the key to this image. Glad you like it, Robin!

Thank you very much for your comment, everyone! We had rainy or foggy weather almost all the time during our family vacation this year, so I didnít have any chance to shoot a pretty sunset as I wished for. Beside that I brought many photos of boats and ships just like this one, where the fog brings its own calm atmosphere to all of them. Iím really glad you like this one! Thank you for taking your time to write!

Monika, this is beautiful. So serene and peaceful. I emailed my husband the link and he said "you need to take a shot like that for our wall!"

Great capture!
