Photography Inspiration: Fog

I've always been fascinated by fog, my hometown used to get foggy pretty often, especially in the summer. People always say, low fog means a hot day ahead. The visual effects created by a fog is striking, like suddenly this super low cloud takes over cities. San Francisco is pretty famous by its fog, it even has a name and Twitter account: Karl the fog ( For this post I selected a few inspiring images of cities and other landscapes taken by Karl and his siblings.

Fog is a collection of liquid water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth's surface. While fog is a type of stratus cloud, the term "fog" is typically distinguished from the more generic term "cloud" in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes). Fog is distinguished from mist only by its density, as expressed in the resulting decrease in visibility: Fog reduces visibility to less than 1 km (5/8 statute mile), whereas mist reduces visibility to no less than 1 km. - Wikipedia
