Sea Smoke

There is an interesting weather condition that occasionally occurs at the Lake. Depending on which way the wind is blowing, fog will gather on the lake, and then blow on the shoreline just around the edges of the lake. Technically, it is not "fog" as it isn't made by clouds, but rather is called sea smoke as it is created by water vapor being blown across the lake. The smoke doesn't usually drift too far inland. These are a few pictures I have of the sea smoke.

Here you can see the smoke gathering on the lake, and drifting south toward the shoreline.

Here the smoke has gathered not on the water, but in the tree line along the shore.
