Foggy Morning

What cloud is so lazy because it will not get up?

Fog.

Interesting Fact: Fog begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets suspended in the air. The main ways water vapor is added to the air: 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 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.

  1. Lovely image. There is a real atmosphere with fog and your photo captures that! I have a question. Do you always watermark? I struggle with using one or not. In this image I think it intrudes a little bit too much and takes away somewhat from the power of the image. Of course it will deter lazy people from stealing your image but anyone who ‘truly’ wants to can crop it or remove it with some work. Here on WP I have decided to rely on EXIF data and not watermark. I have to say I’m struggling with it a little – I have formerly always watermarked. What are your primary reasons – if you don’t mind me asking. Cheers

    • Hello there, thank you for stopping by and checking out my work. To answer your question when I do post my photos online I always do a watermark. I started watermark my photos because I had few experiences of people using my work and not giving me credit. I know sometime it takes away from the image, but I do take that risk. If anyone ever wants to enjoy my work with out the watermark, all they have to do is email and we can work something out. I hope I answer your question. Thank you again. πŸ™‚

      • It makes perfect sense. As I mentioned I normally do watermark for these exact same reasons. I’m going to try just meta data here on WP and see how I go. Thx for your reply and I look forward to following your work πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. Fog and mist are both created by water droplets, differing only in their overall locations and density. Fog is a cloud that reaches ground level, even if that “ground” is a hill or mountaintop. Mist forms wherever water droplets are suspended in the air by temperature inversion, volcanic activity, or changes in humidity. Fog is denser than mist and tends to last longer. In terms of visibility, fog reduces it to less than one kilometer (0.6 miles), while mist can reduce visibility to between 1 and 2 kilometers (0.6 – 1.2 miles).
