An Early Morning Fog

I’m sitting here listening to the rain hitting the skylight, putting a question mark on our Canada Day plans this evening.

I’m glad now that I was up very early this morning and decided on the spur of the moment to head downtown.

Strangely, as the morning got brighter, fog started to roll in off of the lake.

Fog rolling in from the west towards downtown

It’s not something I get to witness very often and I was mesmerized as it slowly engulfed the shore.

    I loved the special effects displayed (not by fireworks or cannons rumbling and smoke remaining) but from good ole Mother Nature’s magic fog wand! You did the really beautiful scenery honor in using your camera to record this series. I’m not sure of others commented and hope I may be one of your first ones to say, “I spied Canada’s red flag with white maple leaf, still and somber waiting out the fog!” πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  9. I’m a big fan on fog, Joanne. We have a lot of it here, and I like the way it clings to the valleys or shore or sits on the sides of mountains. Beautiful photos. I hope your celebration when off without a hitch!

    Living on Lake Ontario at Humber we are often engulfed in that fog and it is absolutely mesmerizing.

  11. Really great series and story Joanne. We recently had a heat wave that broke records and we all waited and some prayed for the fog to come in. We call it the Marine Layer. It brings much need relief from hot temperatures. It arrived to our joy. Every afternoon lately the fog has rolled in and cools things off. In fact. I was freezing in Marin County last evening!

    We live on a fog line – in the hot weather it’s a godsend when it rolls over the hills.

      I love fog … that ethereal, otherwordly aspect. I live far enough from the lake that I don’t see it very often.

      Glad you enjoyed the post. I was pretty impressed watching the CN Tower play peek-a-boo in the fog πŸ™‚

    I used to think the best time to take pictures was when it was bright and sunny. Now, I much prefer an “interesting” sky with clouds, mist, and fog. Nice pictures!

    Lovely photos. We had the same experience here this evening, the hill behind Alice slowly disappeared, but since this happens almost every week it’s not that unusual. To see the CN tower disappear like that is magical πŸ™‚

      I guess if you get a lot of fog, it doesn’t feel very special. I’m far enough from the lake that I don’t normally get to experience this.
      The CN Tower is one of those landmarks that I have a tendency to take for granted – until it starts playing peek-a-boo πŸ™‚
