Fog over Forest. Image by Konstantinos Kourtidis, distributed by EGU under a Creative Commons License.
Fog sweeps over a pine forest in the early morning hours. The image was taken on a winter morning in February 2008. The photo was taken from the window of the photographer’s house in Xanthi, Greece. The fog is of the type of upslope fog or hill fog, which forms when winds blow air up a slope, cooling air as it rises, and causing the moisture in it to condense.
