Took a gorgeous walk through the fog and mist on Wednesday; unusual weather for the middle of August. For me, Victoria is at its most magical in the fog.

I have been going for early morning walks lately. Well, early being 8:30/9 am. When it’s warmer and lighter earlier, I hope to make it out by 7:30. There is a quality to early morning downtown; an atmosphere and attitude to the day which is so lovely. These foggy shots were taken last Sunday morning around the Inner Harbour.

Woke up to the most beautiful foggy morning, so went for a walk to the harbour. The air was so delicious and everything was enveloped in grey.
