A lot of times a mundane or hackneyed landscape can be turned into a dramatic one with the addition of a little fog.  This week in pictures brought two absolutely stunning  examples.  The first comes from the London Metropolitan police via Reuters and shows the skyscrapers of London’s Canary Wharf district dramatically climbing above a fog enshrounded city on December 11, 2013. The second is taken on November 29, 2013 by Erin Whitaker via the United States National Park Service and shows the rare event due to a thermal inversion of a fog filled Grand Canyon.  It is shown here as Figure 1.
