November is statistically the foggiest month in the UK, so in anticipation of this we have here an ode to one of the more gloomy, if not frequently evocative, weather phenomenons.
The foggiest place on Earth is not San Francisco as perhaps you may expect (it does however nab the runner-up prize and also features in this post), but Grand Banks, Newfoundland, Canada. Grand Banks has over 200 days of fog on an annual basis, with the fog forming due to the cold Labrador Current from the north that collides with the significantly warmer Gulf Stream from the south.
It’s entirely possible that some images here may technically be of mist - but hey we don’t have the technology to measure if what we’re seeing is more than 1,000 metres away (the definition of mist). Despite the gloom, fog is ripe for creating some beautiful photography - everyday scenarios and humdrum locations transforming into something completely different; be it romantic, sinister, or just plain surreal. Here are some of the more outstanding images.
