Mist

Pictures from a mountain trip filled with fog

These photos are from a trekking trip up in the mountains a few days ago. I saw some fog coming in from the Atlantic ocean and wanted to get high up in the mountains to get some pictures of the mountains above the fog. Arriving I found out that the fog was covering everything including the mountain peaks. The fog made the scenery looking very mystic so I had to take some photos inside the fog.

Here is a picture from a small valley filled with fog as the fog comes rolling in with the wind. This is at the highest altitude trees grow so this is the last trees you see when you trek the mountain.

Coming down from the peak the fog was even thicker. I was glad that I found my way down.

I was out walking in the nature and at midnight the sun disappeared behind some mountains. This mist started to form over the wetlands. It looked very ghostly and was a bit eerie, but at the same time very fascinating.

The tree is a small birch.

Have you ever experienced fog like this?
