Fog

When I was out walking the dog this morning, I watched the fog come down. It was pitch black still, so all the streetlights started to shimmer as halos appeared and spread around them, as the fog thickened. I don’t enjoy getting up at at ungodly hours, but there are perks.

The fog was still fairly thick at a little after 8am, when I took these photos.
