"Fog Bank Distant"

The fog is off in the Bay of St. John's you can see its' darkened form lurking beyond the harbour boundaries of the cliffs on the North to the left and on the South to the right which also has the Fort Amherst Lighthouse which appears to be keeping the fog at "bay" so to speak. The supply vessel for the rigs in the Hibernia Oil Fields is docked waiting to take out its cargo for the "vile black sap of the earth" that we have termed "OIL", which name rings as ominously to those who can hear, as that of the looming quilt of fog that is ever threatening to engulf us with its cold foggy fingers and its' white blackness as it lurks the bays and coves of the Avalon waiting to devour any land or seascape that it chooses.

Thanks Silbs, we have had that fog bank in the bay for the last three weeks. It sits out there all day and starts to roll in at about 7pm at night. Can't seem to shake it. It is interesting though when the sun is shining to see the fog rolling in an around Signal Hill, it gets so far then the warm land air forces it back out but it is a sight to behold as it twists, meanders, gets pushed up then down neat to see these interactions occur all day long.

This is a great photo Stan, how the foreground is black and the sky is alight. Looks like palm trees growing at the Battery! Doesn't feel like that climate yet though.

Yeah you're right there Tony. The weather has been cool. I blame it on that fog bank in the Definitly not palm trees at the Battery! Ha.
