Fog creeping

This week has been beautiful… except for the fog. Lots of fog, thick fog, scary movie kinda fog. Around home it’s just been rolling in during the mornings. By lunch time, most of it has burnt off, but closer in to the Gulf, it’s lingering.

I feel badly for the Spring Breakers. It’s not been raining, and it’s not been cold, it’s simply been grey.

Even the condos on the beach are affected. The fog is so low and thick, it obliterates the top couple of floors… very creepy. Once away from the water, even less than a mile, the sun is out and bright.

At the beach there are lots of tourists, but visibility out in the Gulf is nil. Where on a clear day, you really can see forever, this week the mist is crawling long the shore.

The first shot here was taken near my home, around 8 o’clock one morning, the others were shot sometime after 2 in the afternoon near the beach.

It’s hard to tell from this shot, but the fog reaches almost mid-way over the bridge before it opens up into full sunlight. You can barely make out a trio of condos on the right.

And, just so you don’t think it is all grey and gloomy… a little spot of color…

  1. I love fog. I think it’s so beautiful and mysterious, but in a good way. That said, I wouldn’t be so happy with it were I on vacation and stuck with it! I was so lucky with our Florida weather this year. The week after we were there, the rain started!
