Foggy Winter Morning (Montreal) • PhotoTraces

I’ve a brand new routine this winter (because of lockdowns). Each morning, I get up simply earlier than the dawn and attempt to guestimate if the golden hour will probably be price placing on winter garments and go outdoors the place it’s -20C.

The morning I took the featured photograph, I knew immediately that dawn could be superb. The explanation for that was thick fog with completely no wind.

Right here, we hardly ever get fog as a result of fixed robust winds coming from the Saint Lawrence river surrounding the Island of Montreal.

I bought to understand and by no means miss foggy climate, which all the time affords distinctive pictures alternatives.

This time, the fog lasted at the very least an hour after the solar appeared over the horizon. I had sufficient time to cowl the massive space and to take loads of attention-grabbing photographs.
