Occasionally weather conditions are such along the coast that a phenomenon called 'sea smoke' occurs. This is a mist that rises off the water, usually when the air is very cold and the water is much warmer. These photos were taken on an early January morning when the dew point was about 32 degrees (F), the air temperature was only a degree or two above that, the Atlantic coastal water temperature was about 60 degrees and the winds were calm.
