How about FOG? Lots of fog here yesterday with some spilling over into today! Yesterday it was clear enough in our burb but we have to go into the city and scope out a Peregrine nest in the Statler because it's bankrupt and boarded up. We have to view the nest from the 26th floor of a building a couple blocks away. This is what we were met with~

Ah ha ha!!! "Statler building should be here." That's pretty funny. Some of the best photos I ever took were back when I didn't have a digital camera and they were of fog blanketing meadows. Boy would I love to get some of those photos converted to digital.

I notice that sunrises and sunsets are not listed, which is as it should be, in my opinion, as they are not weather related, they are astronomical events. Or are they permitted because they generally include clouds in the photo? I'd just like to be sure about this.
