Fog has become a common nuisance around here this week. Some of us have come to view it as, basically, a belligerent stratus cloud that has decided to impose its boredom on us.
Nonetheless, something special can happen when sun and fog have a fencing match on the sea -- advancing and retreating, thrusting and parrying in the wind. It’s then that the increased moisture in the air can filter and reflect light along the edges of the battlefield to make colorful things seem more colorful, especially tan bark red sails and blue water.
