08.06.2018 Sunrise Surprise

Pretty thick fog in the neighborhood and all the way to New Salem I could see the fog rolling up the windshield as the aerodynamics of a moving vehicle carried it over my car. Really wasn’t expecting much as I had stopped here yesterday only to find the viewpoint pretty socked in. But not so this morning. I was just sitting there enjoying the serenity of a fog covered valley when this slight red arc poked above the horizon and slowly turned into a ball of fire.

Good Morning Sunshine!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Beautiful. Suggesting you were in for a pretty hot day there. A scorcha for sure.

    • Yep. Mid-nineties and heat index over 100. Okay, so not Texas or Arizona heat, but it’s all what you are used to. Yesterday I ran the wood-splitter. Not today. I’ve become a bit wussified by old-age.

      • I could barely push around the mower for a few hours yesterday and then again today. Totally saturated (and played out) when it was over. I’m really looking forward to January.

      • I am not a fan of either chore but I think I agree despite my Raynauds. I had done the mowing earlier in the week anticipating this weather and the rain that preceded it.

        Actually, that’s Texas heat, too — at least coastal Texas. Your humidity’s up, too, and that adds to the misery. I just looked, and our conditions are nearly identical: both temp/humidity. Interesting.

      • I am of the opinion that climate change is real and that we are in for less comfortable summers. We’ll see whether that turns out to be true. Lately, at least, there is a change in weather patterns and we are receiving much more heat than we are used to. Thank goodness that the electrical grid is up to the task, for the time being anyway.

    The photo’s quite a combination of heat and coolness. It’s striking to see such a vibrant sunrise above the fog. If it weren’t for the trees, I’d think it was taken at 30,000 ft.

    • Ha, I should crop it and claim to have flown over North Quabbin. ๐Ÿ™‚

      The valley fills with fog quite often. There is a series of hills and valleys to the left (north) with a peak in the distance that I have photographed many times but not yesterday. Fogged out of sight.

    Sunrise over a sea of fog! We were in fog last night and it was the street lights which were glowing like this sunrise.
