    Beautiful, atmospheric trees. Thank you

    Lovely… I’ve often wondered… is the fog from warm air against cold ground, or cold air against warm ground?

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Makes sense – thanks!

      • OK, so you’ve got me checking online and …
        National Geographic says “Radiation fog forms in the evening when heat absorbed by the Earth’s surface during the day is radiated into the air. As heat is transferred from the ground to the air, water droplets form. Sometimes people use the term “ground fog” to refer to radiation fog.”
        and the UK MetOffice further explains “Radiation fog usually occurs in the winter, aided by clear skies and calm conditions. The cooling of land overnight by thermal radiation cools the air close to the surface. This reduces the ability of the air to hold moisture, allowing condensation and fog to occur.”

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Thanks for the info. I asked because most of our fog is the opposite, again usually occuring fall to spring, when moist, warm air comes in to condense over cold or frozen ground. In winter, sometimes we’ll get hoarfrost that way.

    That’s a gloriously shaped oak, Allison – and yes, both very atmospheric pictures
