Picture of the Day: Cloud City
Photograph by Natta Summerky
This stunning photograph was taken on November 12, 2010. An incredible fog blanketed the city of Toronto, turning this urban center into cloud city. Thanks for sharing Mr. Sutin!
Fog is a collection of water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth’s surface. While fog is a type of a cloud, the term “fog” is typically distinguished from the more generic term “cloud” in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes).
The foggiest place in the world is the Grand Banks off the island of Newfoundland, the meeting place of the cold Labrador Current from the north and the much warmer Gulf Stream from the south. [Source: Wikipedia]
