Evening photo: Fog in the desert, Colorado

A foggy morning at Colorado National Monument — a place full of towering monoliths surrounded by a vast plateau and canyon.

It took photographer Greg Owens a year and a half to capture a good image from this spot near the Monument Canyon turnout. But “on this particular December morning, I felt like a six-year-old unwrapping Christmas presents as I watched this fog roll in from the north just after sunrise,” he said.

      It must be uncommon to get fog there. I understand they get it coastal deserts (as in Chile) but Colorado is far inland.

        It is probably rare in such a dry inland region, however I think you posted a similar one a couple of months ago, although I don,t really remember the location.
