“Foggy Morning In Madison”

Still a little while to go on the wildflower scene, moisture is not going to be a problem and the temps are staying pretty cool right now, so no color explosion as of yet  but it won’t be long !!Speaking of moisture… I spent some time out the other morning shooting some  landscape images, the fog that morning was pretty amazing along with the light, and living along the Ohio River always gives you a shot of getting great fog images along the river.     According to Wikipedia

Fog is a collection of water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth’s surface.[1] While fog is a type of a cloud, the term “fog” is typically distinguished from the more generic term “cloud” in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes).[2]Fog forms when the difference between temperature and dew point is generally less than 2.5 °C or 4 F.[5]

Fog begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets in the air. The main ways water vapor is added to the air are: wind convergence into areas of upward motion,[6] precipitation or virga falling from above,[7] daytime heating evaporating water from the surface of oceans, water bodies or wet land,[8] transpiration from plants,[9] cool or dry air moving over warmer water,[10] and lifting air over mountains.[11] Water vapor normally begins to condense on condensation nuclei such as dust, ice, and salt in order to form clouds.[12][13] Fog, like its slightly elevated cousin stratus, is a stable cloud deck which tends to form when a cool, stable air mass is trapped underneath a warm air mass.[14]

Fog normally occurs at a relative humidity near 100%.[15] This can be achieved by either adding moisture to the air or dropping the ambient air temperature.[15] Fog can form at lower humidities, and fog can sometimes not form with relative humidity at 100%. A reading of 100% relative humidity means that the air can hold no additional moisture; the air will become supersaturated if additional moisture is added.
I guess that description was longer than necessary just too explain fog !!
So here is an image I was able to capture that morning..this one is from Clifty Falls State Park and it shows the stacks from the IKE Power Plant with the fog forming in the Ohio River Valley below them.
Well hopefully this will keep my creative fires burning until the spring bloom, I hope you enjoyed these and as always click on the image for best viewing..thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

    I love any subject in fog, even these smokestacks look very moody. But I’m waiting in anticipation of your wildflowers. I so do love Bernie’s Wildflower Show!
