|Description ||Early spring, morning fog transformed these standing stones into spirit like forms from ancient years. This angle doesn't show the true nature of the alignments, but I took it anyway.|
|That's very lovely|
|Thanks for the comment nicola. The fog that morning was thick enough to byte on. Odly enough, there was a strong breeze along with the fog, which never happens in the Alberta rockies where I'm from.|
|That'll be cos its a different kind of fog TysonM. On the land you get Radiation Fog, where warm moist air cools overnight and condenses into a fog. For this there will be little or no wind, or it would all blow away. But near to the sea you can get Advection Fog, where warm moist air is blown in from the sea over the land where it condenses into a fog. For this there needs to be a good continuous wind to blow a steady supply of moist laden air over the land. Sorry to those who knew this already !|
|Thanks for the explanation, I was wondering about it, we get very thick pea soup fog on the solway, when the warm sea water hits our cold part of the world. These fogs are not associated with wind though. |
|Cap'n, thanks for your helpful explanation. It was very eerie to experience thick blowing fog for the first time. Everytime I look at this photo it reminds me of that feeling. Are you really a captain???|
|Guess the answer to your question is yes, I am a qualified as a yacht skipper, but I dont have a boat of my own, and dont get to do as much sailing as I would like. And yes, this is where I learned my rudimantary meteorolgical knowledge ! |
And yes of course you can get the basic Radiation fog above the sea when there is no wind, in fact probably the sort of fog most often encountered, but it will burn off as the day wears on, as it would over land. It is possible for the advection fog to last for days at a time given the right - or wrong - conditions.
