January is fog time in Powell River. In between rain coming off the Pacific, there are high pressure breaks that should bring us some much needed sunshine. But this time of year a forecast of "sunny" often means "foggy."

The fog can cling to the surface of Powell Lake for many hours. Some days it barely rises above the surface of the water and out of the tops of the trees.

On other days, the fog harbours ice. Fog depositing ice leaves frost encrusted trees in it's wake.

It's an amazing weather month, even if it is hard to get around sometimes. -- Margy


  1. Fog can be a real downer and a threat when on the road, but in your pictures, the fog-filled scenes are beautiful! Love the hoarfroast on the trees.
    Happy Sky Watch,

  2. Fog makes interesting photographs. I love your post this week.

  4. Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting on my Skywatch post. Hope this coming week brings everyone lots of sun and blue skies. Well, I guess hoping is OK. - Margy

  5. Fog can be dangerous to drive in and can be depressing if it stays around too long, but your photos are beautiful. Especially the first one.
