In The Fog

Vancouver has been covered in fog for the entire week.  It’s very strange fog however because it is incredibly low.  On Saturday we went snowshoeing at Grouse Mountain.  We were well above the fog level and as a result it was way warmer.  I think it was close to 15 degrees at the top.  Looking down at the city the only thing you could see was the tops of a handful of the tallest buildings poking up out of a sea of white.

This thin layer of fog creates some interesting visual situations. 

When the top of a tall glass building is above the fog and in the distance then you can get the reflections of the sun in shimmering squares just hovering in the sky.

From the base of tall buildings they just kind of disappear into the mist.
