It's been a foggy day on the west coast of Scotland. We turned off the Ardrossan to Largs road, and drove over the Fairlie Moors. We quickly climbed above the fog (at less than 1000ft asl), and what a view we saw.
In the first part of the video, I drove towards Dalry. By the end of that part of the clip, you will see the clouds of mist nearby, and off in the distance, the Irvine valley is hidden completley under the fog.
In the second part of the clip, I turned the car around and drove to the west again. Normally you would see the Firth of Clyde, Hunterston Powerstation, and the two Cumbrae Islands. All that was visible was the cloud a couple of hundred feet below where we were parked. Note at the end of the clip, you can see a cloud forming and sticking up from the fog.
I've been driving for many years, and I've never seen these conditions in this part of the world. Right time, right place!
Note: I have recorded some clips on my Panasonic TZ9, but I'm going to wait until I have the time to record a couple of short clips of the area without fog before I stitch them together (for comparison), and post them on this site.
