Fog Over The Snow

snow and fog

Snow. An unusual occurrence in this area, to say the least. But snow we had. Enough that schools were closed the entire week! Our temperatures dropped to 7 degrees, which was a record once you added the wind chill.

I have never been in weather that cold and was actually a little bit excited to experience it. What did I learn? That tires get little icicles sticking straight out due to the motion of the car.

I learned that when you breathe in freezing air it hurts a bit. Cups of water freeze in the car, and so does deli turkey. Finally, when you leave your gym clothes in the car, they freeze things that shouldn’t be frozen when you put them on.

The coolest part of the week came this morning when warmer temperatures caused fog to form above the snow. It was truly magical to see such beauty.  I took several pictures in the fog and was delighted to find my blue heron friend just beyond the ice.

Here is the original picture, just as I took it in the fog.

This is the original picture of the blue heron flying in the fog, just above the ice.

I chose to post both photo styles because they are so different.  I believe my favorites are the originals, which show just how foggy and beautiful it was.

    Katherine, it’s been the same way here. You know how much I love winter and don’t mind the cold, but OMG…we had three days last week that were so cold, it was even too cold for me. We’ve hardly gotten any snow though. The heaviest was yesterday, it snowed all day! But then today, the temps rose up into the high 50’s and melted all the snow.

    GORGEOUS photographs! Wow! Wow! Wow! I love the originals AND the ‘adjusted’ the photos. They look so professional! WELL done, my friend. Brava!

  • We have fog here and it’s so dense sometimes you can’t even see the house across the street. Your fog is awesome. You’ve taken some great shots too.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

  • I love the beauty of the foggy ones. They have a magical element to them. I also love the photoshopped ones because they show the details that the fog obscured. Both are wonderful.

  • That is so weird that it snowed where you are. I’m glad you took advantage of it and the great photo ops.
