The Thanksgiving fog

washington park fog

Creepy and beautiful.

Not to be confused with turkey hangover. Emails Sebastien:

Something weird happened [Thursday] night. I was outside until about 10:30PM, came back home, and decided to go back out to buy something at the corner an hour later. The temperature had suddenly dropped about 5 to 8 degrees, instantly creating a dense "flash" fog in Center Square. It did last about an hour. I grabbed my camera and walked to Washington Park. It was creepy and beautiful.

Here's the slideshow on Flickr. The photos really are eerie.

Sebastien's photos are beautiful and moody. Not to mention the personal risk he took to his safety by prowling around the park after sundown. View his slideshow -- highly recommended.

Wow, that is beautiful and frame-worthy.

Once again, Sebastien does not fail to impress. Incredible!

Thanks.

@upstater: I don't think there was much personal risk, really :) I was just there at the right place, at the right time. Actually I didn't see anybody else, I guess everybody was home; then again, turkey will do that to you. I'm 6'3" alright, and I did tell a friend where I was, but I don't recall terrible things happening in Washington Park for a while...

Those are incredibly beautiful. I was in dense fog coming down the mountain from Thacher Park after thanksgiving, white knuckling all the way because I couldn't see two inches in front of my headlights, simultaneously awed at the beauty of it. Thank you, Sebastien for capturing it!

Really stunning. The effect of the fog on the lights behind each tree make for the most impressive shots, in my opinion

Come on Seb, you may be a big boy but we both know you wouldn't be able to outrun a very aggressive turtle in an emergency. It is a good thing that you texted your friend, who was home, emptying a box of wine, into his stomach, in case you got into trouble, though.

This photo! LONDON! Anne Perry novels! WOW!

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
