    Well, actually the only thing that was foggy was my lens . . . that's what happens when you take your camera from an air-conditioned room into the humid outdoors.

    Regardless, I sort of like the photo!

    Similar problems occur in cold weather climes going from the outside cold to the warm inside. A zip lock bag (or equal) will resolve this problem, just wait for the bag/camera temp to match the environmental temp.

    PS- interesting look on the water.

    Thanks for the tip about the bag. Usually I just wait about 5 minutes and it all clears up:

    Of course those 5 minutes were pretty important, as the sun rose and the sky became brighter and less orange.

    I like the foggy one, kind of Turneresque.

    The problem with the waiting five minutes method is the moisture will start to minutely condensate inside the lens eventually/often/sometimes leading to fungus (don't know a lot about camera/lens fungus).

    Thanks, that's a good warning. I always store the camera/lens in a dry box with desiccant, so hopefully that will eventually eliminate any residual moisture.

    But next time I'll use a plastic bag, that's a great idea.
