What I had not realised is that living in Upper Green Point on Signal Hill is that we get allot of sea fog here in winter but so far thats the only negative point The whole Green Point Common and the sea have been in fog since about a week sometimes clearing up,sometimes hanging around the whole day This shot was taken after a beautiful sunny day but when I rushed up the top of Signal Hill the sea mist had already covered the sea you can see the lights of ships through the fog and half the Green Point Common too
