Very nice Swissmay.. I like fog!



Margrit Berger on August 18, 2007

Yes Sigmund, I understand, there is often a mystic atmosphere around in misty surroundings. Like a veil, it lets us show something and hides it again.

Sigmund Rise on August 18, 2007

You are right Swissmay! I like that atmosphere!


Ryan Calhoun on August 20, 2007

Very beautiful! I like how the mist has taken the reflections away from the lakes, but the color of the grass only gets deeper and more green.

Margrit Berger on August 21, 2007

Thank you both, Sigmund and Ryan! I see both of you got the atmosphere. It was on the highest point of the pass, very windy and showers of mist cut the sight and opened it for a moment again. I love to be in near contact with nature. May

Greetings Swissmay, Another beautiful photograph. Mysts and fog are such a great subject and add a new dimension of depth to many photographs. This photograph is wonderful. The greens are great. I agree with Sigmund and Ryan. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Richard! :-)

I feel happy, that you, Sigmund and Ryan understand what I felt of the atmosphere as I did. In fog and mists it's really special. I have some pictures similar to this one, which I haven't uploaded yet. On page 10 are some panorama mountain views of the Bernese Alps in light evening mist from a place near where I live. One of my pictures I like is on a winter's day just between day and night, when the light loses its colour and gets soft and unreal. Greetings, May

Greetings May, I thought I would be so bold (shameless) as to offer two of my photographs to your attention for the play on haze, mist and fog. Haze and More Haze. These were early morning headed for Trail Ridge Road.

Thank you Mohammed! Greetings from Switzerland, May

Family photographer.… on September 21, 2007

Such a magnificent view! I was there too late in the evening to take a good shot. I have a few pics, but only as a memory.

Margrit Berger on September 21, 2007

The road up near the top is extremely narrow and no possibility to cross or to turn round. But they have started to make it new. May

Family photographer.… on September 21, 2007

Yes, they are doing something. I was there in 2004 and in 2005; the road was getting wider, but less exciting:). Same in the Ring of Kerry.

I am trying to comment all my pics. When I finish you will see the seasons when they were taken. However, it is no point to go to Ireland in winter without a good reason. The sky is gray most of the time.

Madeleine Weber on August 8, 2008

Well done!

Hello from Kerry Madeleine


Margrit Berger on August 11, 2008

Thank you, Madeleine! Your photos from Kerry are great! Greetings, May

Sehr schön. Sieht aus, als würde gleich die Sonne durch die Wolken brechen.

Viele Grüße, Ingo

Margrit Berger on March 8, 2009

Danke, Ingo! Da oben war es kalt, windig und ungemütlich. Unten angekommen, hatte das Wetter wieder gewechselt, aber du weisst ja, wie es ist in Irland. :) Liebe Grüsse, May

Just to be a bit pedantic. The Pass has nothing to do with the O'Connors. "Conair" (kunnir) is the Gaelic word for Mountain Pass. Anglicisation led to the ridiculous present-day name, lit. the Pass Pass. Mit freundlichen grüßen,

Margrit Berger on April 10, 2009

Thank you very much, Cromdubh, for the little Irish language lesson! I am always eager to learn. Couldn't it be that the name O'Connor has its source in the word 'Conair'? And which one is right now, 'Conair' or 'Kunnir'? I see that there are two or more expressions for one word. But I am used to it, in Romansh, the 4th. official language of Switzerland (not to be mixed up with Romanian), we have the same problem. :) Best greetings from Switzerland, May
