Spontaneous Combustion

... or so it appears.

This time of year it often rains heavily overnight, but clears when morning arrives. If the clearing includes a sunny dawn it often produces evaporation or steam fog as the moisture on surfaces warms, begins to evaporate, but meets the cooler air above. This log on the boom around our cabin really gave off a dramatic display earlier this week. -- Margy

  2. You're on the West Coast, and I'm on the Best Coast. :-) Seriously though, aren't we lucky to live on either coast? This is a stunning photo and how perfectly you've captured a still, peaceful morning.

  7. Margy, that veggie garden is amazing! What a clever idea. I am so impressed! WOW!!!

    Thank you for visiting My Muskoka !
    No veggies for me. Not enough sun and too much wind.

  8. What a cool shot. As much as I hate the cold weather it sure can be beautiful when the sun warms the air.
