December Fog

The weather in Western Oregon is of course, notorious. As I was preparing to move here from New Mexico, everybody asked me 'what about the rain'? I answered that I craved it, belonged to it, almost like a racial or ancestral memory. This has proven so true.
In between storms in early winter a very cold fog can settle in for days. It is thrilling.

This is outstanding. Fog and rain definitely change the mood of any scene, especially in the high desert(in my opinion.)
I picked up a used copy of THE CONTENT OF WATERCOLOR and am thoroughly enjoying it. I just wish the book had more color. Thanks for the reference.
