Considering it is almost the end of November, the weather has been fairly mild in my neck of the woods lately. I actually went for a walk at lunch today wearing only a light spring jacket. I am ecstatic because often by this time of the year we are buried under snow, and I’ll take the mild weather for as long as Mother Nature wants to deliver it. However, the nights have still been very cold resulting in what I think is referred to as radiation fog in the early mornings.
I have been really wanting to capture the eerie mood that this morning fog creates, but yesterday the fog was so heavy that I didn’t feel it was safe to stop at the side of the highway to take pictures. If I had left about a half an hour earlier this morning, it would have been perfect for photos, but by the time I hit the highway the sun had already burned away a lot of the fog. I still managed to capture some interesting and beautiful shots though as I stopped every few kilometres on my way to work, and I’m sure the other people travelling the same route thought I was crazy. Oh well, they just don’t know a photo op when it appears in front of them :).
I am going to spread these photos over a few days, and to start out here are a few shots looking down the highway. As you can see, the sun was really poking its way through the clouds and appears as a big overexposed patch in the sky, but I love the atmosphere of the rest of the shot.
