1/1/13, and the view from my house.

I got home early (~12:30 this morning) from a good friend's house, and the fog had completely enveloped our part of the world - leaving particles of water to diffuse the moonlight hanging above us. The early morning hours did the same thing, but with the sunlight instead. We were covered in a silvery glow that I had always pictured Canterlot in.

 

Unfortunately, our best camera isn't too good when it comes to long exposure shots, so I couldn't get any great photos of the midnight "glow" the world had. Below are three shots I took this morning, plus one I took at night (it might be hard to see).

 

Here's the view from the corner of our back deck, with the sunlight shining off of the fog:

A wide-ish shot of the tree on our back hill. The hill drops down below, and the fog makes it look like the world just sort of "disappears" out of sight. If one was here in person, you could make out the faintest grey silhouettes of a second tree line, on a ridge in the far distance. (This is looking off to the left of our back deck.):

A zoomed shot through the trees and to the wall of white in the distance:

This is an evening shot, with relatively long exposure. (All you'll see is an slightly orange glow, and the silhouettes of trees around it.) There's just no substitute for seeing it in person...

All in all, a very cool way to start the new year. :)

Fog is really hard to take a picture of. xD  I've tried.

 

But I love when it really comes down and totally envelops everything. I remember one early morning coming home from work that was like driving through Silent Hill.

This isn't Canterlot. Where's the casinos, drug dealers, and people being crucified?

 

I'm sorry - what does any of those things have to do with Canterlot?

 

That's what Canterlot looks like? Well, it has been a while since I last watched MLP.

 

You missed my point I guess...
