I’m always excited when we wake up to a really foggy morning. It doesn’t happen all that often around here, so I appreciate the meteorological variety. Fog also piques my imagination. I’m not saying that there might be, say, dinosaurs lurking in that mist, but I’m also not saying there aren’t.
Fog seems to usually roll in shortly after sunrise and Debbie and I are often already out for a run, which thwarts my photographic strategies. This morning was different, though. We had already agreed on a rest day (four miles of running yesterday plus a two hour dance last night informed our decision) so when the shades automatically went up at their programmed time and revealed…not much, I jumped at the chance to fire up the drone. My excitement wasn’t unwarranted.
When we do have fog, it’s often a prelude to a dreary, overcast day, such that even if the drone can clear the fog, the view isn’t that dramatic. But there wasn’t a cloud in the sky above the layer of fog, and the view from just under 400′ was spectacular. Here are a few of the photos I managed to capture via my drone.
