Fog Drenched Roses

This past week I took some pictures of my roses during the morning fog.

I expected them to look a bit like what they do when it rains. See: Raindrops on Roses However, there are some interesting differences.

Roses, Fog, Foggy Weather, Drops on RosesHere you can see the effect that the fog has on a rose bloom. The petals are covered with different sized droplets of water, but most of them are small.

Fog, Rose, Water Droplets, January RoseHere is a little closer view. With rain, the drops are usually larger and are more separated. With the fog the petals get drenched and the drops do not consolidate.

Rose Leaves, Fog, California, January RosesHere are some of the leaves on the bush. Here again you can see that the entire leaves are covered with droplets. Often with rain you will see only a few larger drops.

Yellow Rose in FogThe water droplets were harder to see on this yellow rose. I took this picture just minutes later than the ones above. The bloom was also in a bit warmer place and did not have as much condensation of the fog droplets.

A beautiful rose for January.

Rose, Fog condensation on Rose, Red RoseI took this picture this morning. There was not as heavy of fog today, but there was still condensation on the rose. The rose is still really fragrant as it is a Mr. Lincoln rose.

This will be one of the last roses on the bush as I will be cutting back my roses later this month. It is so hard to do when there are still rose blooms, but it needs to be done.
