Fog Along The Rideau Canal

I'm having a wee bit of a rant over at my writing blog today, set to go live at the same time this one goes. There's a bit of bad language involved, but it's understandable given the circumstances.

One morning I woke up to early fog, and passed over the Rideau Canal where it widens into Dow's Lake, before heading up into the Glebe. Foggy days like this really are photogenic in a completely different way.

    Love the photo with hints of color!

    @Tamago: the last time I featured fog, it was from that bridge as well. I remember it was like a wall, especially on the lake side.

    @Stefan: I couldn't resist.

    @Janey: fog seems relatively rare here.

  16. I love the reflections in your first shots.
    Sometimes when it's foggy here we can smell the saltwater from the Strait of Juan de Fuca about a mile away. That's something I love about the maritime climate.
