Freezing Fog

We were welcomed home to Eastern Oregon by an inversion, very common this time of year, which means we don’t see sun, but when the fog freezes on plants, buildings, cobwebs, etc., it makes some very beautiful things. Here are a few photos I made yesterday, walking around our property in the freezing fog.

As seen at 4:10 p.m., Dec. 6, 2013 at the intersection of Cambridge St. and Warren St. in Allston, Mass., outside St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. At 7:30 this morning, it did not yet include the word “free.” Which means some genius changed the sign in broad daylight, at a busy intersection.
