Fog shadow of TV tower in San Francisco

Fog shadow of Sutro tower, San Francisco. These fascinating shadows look odd since humans are not used to seeing shadows in three dimensions. The thin fog was just dense enough to be illuminated by the light that passed through the gaps in a structure or in a tree. As a result, the path of an object shadow through the "fog" appears darkened. In a sense, these shadow lanes are similar to crepuscular rays, which are caused by cloud shadows, but here, they're caused by an object shadows.

Yeah Claudia! I see eye to eye with you, it is pretty impressive to realize they way a tree dimensional shadow is made. I wonder what other kind of weird nature events can be found over here.
If anythings' up, please let us know it!
