I was out and about early this morning and was witness to a rather cool sight.
The hill across the river Clyde from me had a massive cloud bank sitting on it that was slowly but surely rolling down over it like thick treacle and at the same time a sea mist was rising seemingly out of nowhere-



The entire upper half of the hill was gone, you can see street lights illuminating the underside of it as it rolled down-



Before long most of the hill was gone, either covered by the cloud or obscured by the mist-



It was also moving quite quickly southwards, notice the white lighthouse on the right of the picture-



Within a few minutes it too was gone-



Before long it was all gone and the mist had met the cloud-





And by the time I was nearly home it was catching me up-



This is the golf course at the end of my road, or would be if you could see it!-



And by the time I was at my own front gate it was in a big circle all around, this is the fog bank at the other end, looking in the opposite direction to the sea-

John Carpenter doesnt live around there does he ? Shocked
You havent noticed some odd, wet looking seamen with hot burning eyes wandering about ? Shocked
you havent got any stolen treasure your refusing to return? Shocked
No ?
Oh well,
great pics indeed, I always get a 'wow' feeling when its natural, strange to me how something natural feels far more eerie or scarey than anything a film set churns out. I guess cos you are actually in it & not part of an audience, you are getting first hand experience.

Yes. Almost a bit Doctor Who-ee with the fog following you like that. Very Happy

And you got some pretty pretty pictures in there too. Nod

It's actually snowing here. Shocked Actually here this time. It did properly overnight, though it didn't stick around this low.

Haha, yeah. Statistically they should be drowning, I guess. Razz It's a bit too warm for it too stick to the ground, but it is properly snowing.

It's a strange time generally for this place, actually. We even had the northern lights two days ago. Though of course I missed it. Rolling Eyes Someone even got a picture of it south of Oslo. Mad

Though you still need to be further north to get a proper look at it.

You could just go to the north of Scotland and then you dont have to leave the country. Shrugging

Yeah further north the better, but very occasionally even see them as far south as where I am.

Yeah, I went from walking around in a sweater to my full winter jacket and a scarf in like a day or two.
