Skywatch Friday: Lifting Fog

Time: 0738

Off South Fidalgo Island, the fog lifts from Skagit Bay in this seven minute sequence.  Because of our proximity to the Pacific Ocean, early morning fog can be a year-around phenomenon here.  It usually lifts before or shortly after sunrise.  Fog is a low-lying cloud which forms from moist air when the difference between air temperature and the dew point is small.  The driftwood is probably debris from the Skagit River seeking its home on the South Fidalgo shore.

Skywatch Friday


  1. I love fog on the water. I really like how you showed the sequence of pictures! Beautiful!

  2. Love these! If you had continued you could have made a movie out of them! Love the colours and the trees silhouetted against the water.

  3. Brill, fog is just a wee reward for a photographer who cares to get out of his bed at an early time in the morning.

  4. These are beautiful I love watching the fog lift. Here in the valley it can look so much like the forest is on fire and smoking. It moves and swirls..
