A few days ago the evening weather person announced there would be thick fog developing overnight and the next morning’s commute might have limited visibility.
That’s all I needed to hear to make sure my camera battery was charged up and ready to go. Fog settles in frequently in the mountains, but when the weather person actually mentions it during the weather report you know it can be thicker than normal.
When I woke up it was still pretty dark, but as soon as a little light came into play I could see he had been right.
I started out at Beaver Lake, but the fog was truly SO thick that you couldn’t see anything except what was right in front of you.

So I headed back towards home and stopped at a friends farm property and found some beautiful images to shoot. I tried to get some cows in the fog, but they got scared when I walked toward them and disappeared into the fog on the hill.

I made a final trip down a rural road before heading home and found these amazing cattails.

By then the sun was getting high in the sky and burning off what fog remained. It was time to find my way home and enjoy a second cup of coffee.
