A Ghostly Fog
A ghostly apparition slowly drifted across Arlington National Cemetery early Wednesday morning as the day's first light appeared from the east. The ghostly form paused, swirled upward, then moved forward again. I quickly grabbed the camera and took a series of photographs, framing the eerie form against the countless tombstones and rolling hills, the bare trees adding an element of spookiness.
What was this form dancing through the cemetery?

I can confidently tell you it was fog, just plain ol' fog. How am I so sure? Well, I watched those darn fog banks swirl across the Potomac River toward me during the pre-dawn hour and spoil my sunrise photo shoot, completely blocking out the sun. Yep, I woke up at 5 a.m. -- to see fog. At least I was able to get a few foggy photos.
Wednesday began quite cool, damp and dreary. At times, mist fell with the dense fog. It took a couple hours for the sun to burn through the fog. But by afternoon a glorious day was upon us -- the temperature soared, the sun was bright, and I can safely say that ghostly apparitions were no longer dancing through Arlington National Cemetery. Just warm breezes.
