This has been a different winter for us here in the Copper Country. It hasnít been as cold as usual for January and we are way behind in total snowfall for the season. Someone pointed out today that weíre about 11 feet behind in snow right now. WOW!
One thing we seem to have had more of is fog and hoar frost. Aladino Mandoli captured some shots of both this past week, looking over at the Quincy Mine buildings, with Ripley hidden in the fog, checking out the Ranger III, with the background of fog, and barely seeing the Portage Lift Bridge, as itís shrouded in fog, with the towers peeking out. The fog hanging low like that, makes those scenes a bit mysterious, yet beautiful all at once.
The bottom photo shows the Hoar Frost on a tree in Kestner Park. Note that there is no fog behind it on the Hancock side, so it had either dissipated already or hadnít covered things over there. You can definitely see the frost across the Canal, though. Click on the following link to check out more of Aladinoís work: Asurimaging.com.
Adam Johson, from brockit,inc, caught the Bridge in a late night winter fog, with a drone. The sliver of fog just hanging there and the lights reflecting on the ice, give the whole scene an ethereal feeling.

Decades ago, I was enroute to work, and my car died
in the middle of the bridge. Blizzard.
6am....OMG...I won't take the time to write about
that. Suffice it to say....I wouldn't wish that on
