Photograph of Key Bridge during the “great fog of 2013” in Washington DC.
One night back in January the Washington DC area got to experience some really heavy fog. Not really normal for us around here. Occasionally we’ll get some light fog, but this was really really thick. Over course that meant going out to take pictures! The same night I took the pictures of Meet Me In The Fog and The Fog Of War photographs was out in DC at the Potomac Boat Club (PBC). PBC sits on the Potomac River right next to the Francis Scott Key Bridge. On the opposite shore is Rosslyn, an area of Arlington, VA. At times the fog was heavy enough that you could barely see the first support on the left in the photo. All of Rosslyn and Virginia across the river was completely gone.
The water was still enough that night that it gave a nice reflection of the lone boat in the water. When this shot was taken you could just barely make out some trees and lights on the opposite shore.
