We know that Lloyd gets up very early every morning to write the TreeHugger newsletter ... seeing that this is his view during summer months makes us feel just a little less sorry for him.

Taken during sunrise at Shoe Lake in Muskoka Ontario, Lloyd's picturesque mist is the result of cool autumn air meeting the still-warm water. As explained at MNN, the phenomenon goes by many names, including steam fog, evaporation fog, frost smoke and sea smoke. You can read more about it here; and in the meantime, say good bye to summer as the steam fog ushers in a new season.
