Rocky Mountain – Mist and Snow

We enjoyed very much the fall foliage in South Korea last Autumn.

For most part of our trip, the weather was fine. However, the weather changed quickly when we were making our way up Daedunsan in a cable car. By the time we were up in the mountain, rain has started. We hiked for a distance up the mountain but the rain was so heavy that we have to retreat. This picture taken just before we retreated, shows the mountain and the foliage in the mist and the rain.DSCF3417

Several years back, we also made a trip up the mountains in Japan. It was late Autumn. When we made our way up the mountains of Tateyama- Kurobe, there were no signs of snowing.DSC_0114

Snow was falling when we reached almost the top. We didn’t have any thick clothes. Many of the pictures taken there appeared as black and white. However, this one taken of the rock slope do have some colors.

The last image was taken in Zhangjiajie, China.DSC_0095

The view of a stone column jutting up in the mist with trees on top was just spectacular!

Mist and snow always add a bit of mystery to mountains.

  1. love the mist on mountains! to be honest I prefer photos of mountains covered in mist rather than mountains with clear skies around them

  2. A trip to the mountains/national parks is a must for me, which ever country I visit, as it adds more depth into the trip, making it more meaningful. And best of all, we get to bring back amazing pictures as lifelong souvenir! The colors of nature peeking out from the mist brought the sceneries alive in these photos. Lovely! Thanks for sharing, Michael 🙂

  3. autumn … always my season, even if i live it vicariously through others’ perspectives, thank you for sharing yours with me, Michael — your photos are always stunning, thank you for sharing them with us …

    • This cable car has an enclosed compartment. I am scared too by those two seaters open out to the environment, especially if it is over 50 feet above ground. Regards, Michael

  4. Absolutely breathtaking, as usual! There is something so hauntingly beautiful about mountains & mist. Perhaps it’s the softness & hardness , darkness & light – the opposing elements that makes them so mysterious? In any case, you have certainly captured the feeling!

    • Hi Alyssa, nice to hear from you. In fact, I quite like taking photos that convey peace and serenity. Hope that you will drop by again. Regards, Michael
