Northern Exposure!

For several days in December, the weather gets cold enough to raise "Sea Smoke" off the surface.  The air temperature must be well below zero for this weather phenomenon to occur.

Although batteries don't last long in the frigid air, it's well worth the numb fingers.
Here is a video of the scene! Music by: Mary Beth Carlson

Here are some images taken at the same time.
