When cold air moves over a warmer body of water, you often see fog. At this time of year, there is a particularly wispy kind of fog that occurs when extra cold air blows over the ocean.

Moisture evaporating from the sea immediately condenses into the wisps of fog you see forming at the crest of every little wave.

While outside of Digby County it is often called sea smoke or artic fog or bay steamers, here people call it vapour.

    Great pictures Jonathon and Ben gathered up today. I especially liked seeing the waves, the rocks, and the Princess.
