The fog, the mountain and more

During winter, here in Hobart, a thick grey fog the locals refer to as Charlie, snakes its way through the valley at the base of Mount Wellington and the surrounding hills, and blankets the northern suburbs. Since the first time I saw the fog, I have wanted to take some photos of it. As I only ever see it when I am on my way to work early in the morning and it doesn’t happen every day I have never had the chance until recently. I happened to have my little digital camera in my bag on the car seat next to me on my way to work, and snapped off two shots before I got to work (or had an accident). I have never seen a fog so thick, and the way it is concentrated to the narrow strip of area at the base of the hills is quite spectacular. Unfortunately, I wasn’t in the position to find the best vantage point to take photos, but I hope you get an idea.
The other photos, I took on the same day after work, when I couldn’t resist the stunningly beautiful calm waters of the Derwent River with its magnificent reflections. I took them all in and around the bay near where I live.
