Lake Scugog Fog

 Foggy morning - Lake Scugog

A "stationary front" has been hanging over Ontario for a few days and boy! it sure has been foggy. Some days the fog has not lifted until lunch time and then has returned before sundown. I think driving in thick fog is just as dangerous - or perhaps more dangerous - than driving in snow, but don't get me going on how risky some people drive!

A couple of days ago the fog wasn't too think in East Gwillimbury so my husband and I took a road trip to Port Perry. The closer we got to Lake Scugog, the thicker the fog got.

Fishers on a boat ramp 

Colourful fishers were out. I don't know if anyone caught any fish, though.

I am joining Wednesday Waters HERE.

Glad you said they were fishing. Actually, I first thought they were all watching something out on the water.

Andy said...

Today you and I are both in the fog. My posting is also about fog. In the same area too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lovely capture of the foggy morning at Lake Scugog.

Foggy morning - Lake Scugog...magical.

Darla said...

I like the look of fog, don't like driving in it. What a colorful group of fishermen.

fog makes the everyday special :)

Sandra said...

i was guessing what all those people were doing and did not think fishing. they are so close together looks like someone could get a hook in the other OR get those lines all tied together.. it is a great photo though. and i love the magic of the trees in the fog, but would not want to drive in it. you are so right, to many crazy drivers out there

Nice fog shot and I love the colors and composition in the second photo.

There's something so pretty about fog in photos to me. I like the line of fishermen too!

We had a week of that thick fog, I hate driving in it.

Kate said...

I just saw Andy's fog photo today; they do create a mood!

Your first photo is great!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I agree EG, driving in fog is pretty scary, I think I've only ever had that experience once. As well as your gorgeous foggy image I'm still enjoying the name Lake Scugog :)

Christine said...

It was black ice that caught me out a few years back so I dread driving in any bad weather. Nice splash of colourful fishermen in your shot!

Lowell said...

I hate hate hate driving in fog! It is just too dangerous and some folks don't seem to realize they can't see what's in front of them.

Love that 2nd shot especially...what a group. I used to fish but now it looks just plain boring! :))

Lea said...

I like your foggy photos, but I don't want to drive in fog - very dangerous.

namaki said...

So many fishermen ! I just hope there will be some fish left ;-)

Anvilcloud said...

Fog photos are good photos. We haven't had a whole lot here though.

Sylvia K said...

It's a wet one way or another -- it rained hard here for 24 hours!! I thought for sure that I'd be floating off to somewhere!! It's stopped raining for now, but it is GRAY!! I do love your captures!! Those colorful coats are perfect against those gray skies!! Hope your week is going well!

José Mendonça said...

I love foggy photos!

Cloudia said...

Wonderful color pay off!
Yes, we see fog in the morning on the wetlands....Dreamlike. But we are back up to 60F / 15.5556C today......Down in the 30's is NEWS here. Hope you have a safe and lovely winter 'up' there!

It's foggy here tonight but I can't take pictures of fog at night therefore I like yours!

Marleen said...

I am spending 1,5 hours in my car each day to and from work, and conditions like this can be so risky.
Especially your first photo is beautiful though! :)

Ruth Hiebert said...

I think I would rather drive in the snow than in a thick fog. Love that first shot especially.

RedPat said...

It sure has been foggy!

DeniseinVA said...

Two super photos! I know fog can be treachurous and I am glad you and your husband got home without any problems, but fog sure makes for beautiful photographs.

William Kendall said...

I miss Lake Scugog!

We haven't had the fog here, but lots of grey skies days, at least until today.

Lois said...

That first shot is eerily beautiful! I hate driving in fog.

Rose said...

I love this shot...and love foggy shots in general. They are sort of like snow...make any scene a wonderful scene.

I really have to pick up my courage to get out and drive in foggy weather now.

Jack said...

That first photo is quite lovely. It looks like a place you could photograph over and over in all sorts of different weather.

Halcyon said...

Such a Canadian scene with the fishers out in their colorful coats! Love the foggy atmosphere too.

Giga said...

I like the hazy views. Your photo is very pretty. Regards.

Kay said...

I like the atmosphere of fog and like the mood it creates in your first shot. And the fisher people? I'm imagining fish swimming along their array of lines like window shoppers. "Hey, Fred! Get a load of this lure! This guy's serious."

Gemma Wiseman said...

So love the atmosphere of fog... for walking. Driving is quite another matter. Love all the coloured jackets lined up.
