Montauk dew

I'm in Montauk right now. Everything is covered with a thin layer of dew/fog/haze. It's seemed foggier than normal here this year. Yesterday was hot and the skies were clear. Upon reaching Napeague, I could see a thick gray layer of fog in the distance, hovering maybe 50 feet over the ground. By the time I got to Montauk, everything was enveloped. Then it cleared up. Then it returned. The rising sun turned from pale orange ball to nothing as it actually burned the fog back into the sky.

In other news, I discovered last night that a full moon measures about 246x246 pixels, when photographed with a Nikon D70 and a 200mm lens. Keep that in mind as you take pictures of the moon with a Nikon D7 and a 200mm lens.

Ha ha. You think that's the moon? Have you actually been there? NO. Everyone knows our intelligent designers have merely placed a piece of black cloth with the stars and the moon painted on it in glow-in-the-dark paint over our flat plate-shaped plane of existence.
