A Foggy Morning in Nashville

Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge

Last week I headed out to downtown Nashville with the intention of photographing the skyline of Nashville during sunrise. I walked out my front door to a world of smoky white fog. Not deterred I still headed to my destination, fully expecting the fog to disappear by the time I hit the city. Much to my delight, it hung around long enough for me to wonder around downtown and at Centennial Park.


I am in love with fog, its like being in a different world, everything is hidden from view, the world seems dark, mysterious, and new. The fog was incredibly heavy, there were times I could not see more than a few feet in front of me. The bright lights from street lights and neon signs were bright, street signs were almost impossible to read until I was right next to them.  Centennial Park was a little hard to navigate, I don’t know my way around the park very well, but the sound of geese drew my attention to Lake Watauga. This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the lake and I’m amazed at the beauty of it in the dense fog.

I was so occupied by the hidden sights I didn’t get as many pictures as I would have liked in the time, I was having too much fun wandering around with my mouth hanging open. Did I tell you I LOVE the fog. I don’t usually get many opportunity to wander around in it, it seems I’m always too busy to soak in the atmosphere. There is also a slight chance that I’m not a morning person. Nashville I love your foggy mornings.
