    The fog around my house is a repeat visitor and takes on a life of its own. Like a vampire the mysterious vapor tries to avoid the sun light.

    As dawn approaches the mist assembles:

    The mist seems to know I'm there and moves away:

    Clings to a tree for protection but alas at this time of year there are no leaves for the mist to cling too:
