Today, Southern Michigan was hit with a warm front that elevated temperatures to a balmy, foggy 60 degrees! My state is known for moodswing-esque temperature changes all year long, and today was no exception. By dusk all of the snow had melted away, but not before I managed to capture some lovely, eerie shots in Northville Michigan this morning!
The cold, rain of late winter recently gave way to warmer, foggier weather that covered Northville Michigan in a thick, eerie fog, which made for some lovely photographs. My husband and I stepped out into the unseasonably warm weather, and went for a walk. From what the news said, the very sudden change in weather caused the deep snow to quickly evaporate and hang in the air, creating this dense, cloud-like fog. It was hauntingly beautiful in person.
We couldn’t see much more than 10 yards or so in front of us, and it was strange that it seemed less foggy in my photos of Northville Michigan after the fact, but it made our walk eerie. We heard an owl off in the distance, who was either staying up late, as it was around 8am when we were out, or the poor thing was confused by the dense, dark fog. Either way, the combination of an owl hooting nearby, the thick fog, rapidly melting & sublimating snow, and very warm air that didn’t match the piles of snow on the ground made this morning feel like something straight out of a strange dream.
I’d never seen such dense fog, and it was so fascinating to watch it swirl around as we walked, almost as though it was alive and reacting to our presence. Of course, we knew that it wasn’t, but it was still fun to pretend that perhaps something a bit more mystical was happening.
