Stunning fog photos by Mike Hollingshead
Mike Hollingshead said about himself that he’s “just a guy that liked storms as a kid then started chasing them in 1999. Bought a still camera in 2002. Quit my job in 2004, with zero intentions beyond simply chasing that spring, then getting a job somewhere again that summer. At least 8 years later now I’ve still not gotten that job. Somehow this just happened and has worked. It was never a plan to do this, it just happened. I’d have chased every year all the same, but it being my soul income was the furthest thing from my mind. And heck, it’s only barely worked(debt) the whole time. It’s a long story, but more or less it’s not nearly as great as it sounds. There’s no peace of mind in hoping sales come along and your old hobby sometimes feeling as if you have to do well at it. I could write a book on this topic now. For every up about it there is a solid down.”
Fog is a collection of liquid water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth’s surface. While fog is a type of stratus cloud, the term “fog” is typically distinguished from the more generic term “cloud” in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes).
Fog begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets in the air. The main ways water vapor is added to the air: wind convergence into areas of upward motion, precipitation or virga falling from above, daytime heating evaporating water from the surface of oceans, water bodies or wet land.
