Clearing fog under a rising sun


On Monday morning fog rolled up from the rivers around Calgary and covered most of the city and surrounding areas.  I was near the Springbank airport at sunrise and the visibility was not much more than a hundred metres.  I photographed the sunrise from a hill above the fog and then returned to the airport.  This photograph was taken about 20 minutes after daybreak as the line of fog was receding towards Calgary.  I was surprised by the speed that it moved and even more so when it returned again a few minutes later.  This ebb and flow reminded me of the tides and was amazing to be in the middle of.  I will share more soon but wanted to start with this first view of the sun when the fog was rolling eastward.

  2. Lovely shot, I live on the coast in the UK and we get sea mist/fog that comes and goes so quickly all year. Sometimes it sits just above land in an unbelievable straight line.

  3. Beautiful shot, Christopher. Here in SF, “Karl the Fog” has shown up more than usual with the storms…he usually loves the summer months! 🙂

  8. Nice shot! I was nearby (in Valley Ridge), it was a surreal morning. I wish I had a camera (and the skills) to capture this too!
