River Mist

***** Location: ireland
***** Season: All Autumn
***** Category: Heaven


Early in the morning a mist rises from an Irish river and obscures the banks in a haze of fog before the sunrise burns it all away. The fog rises suddenly and burns off just as fast - the whole process takes about 20 minutes.

(As described by the eyewitness)
"This morning as I sat staring out at the slowly lightening sky I saw the finger of mist making its way upriver. The Shannon dawn mist is quite startling, actually. Moving swiftly upriver, a mist rises from the water as if the whole river were about to boil. It moves like a white cloud northward into the town from the Shannon callows and is so heavy it quickly obscures the opposite bank. Then, the sun appears and the whole thing evaporates into thin air in the space of ten minutes or so."
