Ice Fog

I have a pretty spectacular view on my daily commute.    I drive down from about 6,500 feet near Virginia City, Nevada, into the valley where Reno hugs the Sierra mountains.    Today was one of those days where a weather inversion is holding the clouds down and providing an interesting photo opp.   Enjoy.

FYI:  All photos were taken with my phone, a Samsung Galaxy IIIS.   And, yes, I pulled over to take the pictures.   Safety first.

This is what it looks like when you are in the valley.   The blanket of fog was pretty thick and makes a “pogonip” of ice crystals all over everything.   It’s one of my favorite things about winter because it doesn’t happen very often and, thankfully, never lasts very long.
