Aaaaaaaargh! Who swiped my views overnight?

I woke up to find that the local representatives of Burglars, Pilferers Inc had excelled themselves last night.  Flinging wide the bedroom curtains, I couldn’t help noticing that the beach and sea had gone missing.

Hills and buildings on the other side had also been taken, and even some of our trees were being affected.

This may be a common sight in many parts of the world, but it is something that hardly ever happens here.  Strangely enough, it was quite localised.  Apparently we were an isolated area with our heads in the clouds.

    That is so beautiful!


  2. How lovely! At least you will have your “property” returned soon enough! 🙂 Lucky you!


  3. Big mist-take. Don’t leave your hills, buildings and other views outside the house after nightfall.

    You know, you’d think the trees would have put up more of a fight.


  5. Colline says:

    It is a sight I often see here during the wintertime. I wonder if added pollution has anything to do with it?

    Dammit! All the best – (Mist, Foggiest, Clouds etc) and thus cheesiest one – liners are taken.
    Nice photos though. Oh…I see someone already said that too.


  7. I hope they return your view hastily 🙂

    ah this is what happens when you doubt ‘strange happenings’…they go out of their way to prove to you that there is always the possibility of ghostly creatures , people or happenings…this is one such example


  12. MoreThanACat says:

    I hope you lodged a complaint with the UN? As a cat I do that frequently when the weather is not what I ordered! 🙂


  13. Ah. Fog. Makes pretty pics…..


  14. jakesprinter says:

    Beautiful Photography my friend 🙂


  15. nrhatch says:

    Fog can be fun . . . if you’re not in need of the view.


  16. suzicate says:

    Ha, never know what’s happening in the thick of the fog, especially if you’re living in a haunted house surrounded by the fog…oh my!


  17. bluebee says:

    Ooh, just the weather for writing mysteries.


  18. calmgrove says:

    Yep, very common in our Welsh hills, this damp swirling cotton wool stuff. Mind you, we have two types, ‘mist’ (just like wot you had) and ‘Welsh mist’ (light rain which emerges straight out of the enveloping cloud onto you).

    ‘Head in the clouds…’ I trust that’s not a metaphor.


  19. I do love the mysterious feel and hush of mist….as long as it doesn’t last too long 🙂


  20. Grannymar says:

    Thankfully we had a glorious day, while you were lost in fog. It is a regular visitor to these shores and well outstayed all welcome this past winter. Many a day I could not see beyond the end of my nose!

    One morning the whole of Toti’s beach front disappeared like that, too. For a while I didn’t have to look at that big block of flats formerly known as Sanlam Park! Glorious feeling.


  22. Haha. Looks like a shot of Gib. Too bust catching up to write my own posts though 😀
