Location: Amsterdam. The Netherlands


In winter, Amsterdam is often shrouded in a dense fog. It is cold and chilly, but also magical. The photo corresponds to AmstelPark, in one of those magical foggy mornings.

This fog is called evaporation fog, and forms when cool air lies over a warm body of water. The water molecules evaporate from the surface of the water into the colder air above, rapidly humidifying it. Netherlands is completely full of lakes, canals, rivers and any type of water canalization. The whole country is literally flooded, making this type of fog very common in winter.
