Ice on the Buoy

One of the indicators that it is cold out is when we see ice on the buoy. This buoy is a green channel marker, G11 and flashes every 2.5 seconds. When it gets down in the single digits, ice begins to accumulate on it.

When we see sea smoke, we know to throw on a couple of extra layers of cloths.

Interesting post and photos. It must cold on the water this time of year. I've never heard of sea smoke. Cool capture!

We had mist up here in N.H. also. It's not exactly sun bathing weather out there on the water.

I love to photograph sea smoke dancing on the surface. You have captured the perfect picture here.

I have never heard of "sea smoke" before. It must be like steam from warmer water compared to the air??? These are amazing photos...beautiful!

Very nice captures Steve, I like the ice on the buoy. Sea smoke is a kind of Sea Fret ( fog ) I think, thanks for sharing:)

Sure does look cold!

Hi Stine, I wasn't as cold today, it made it to 28F.

Sort of, Jane, (I had to look up sea fret, it's a great term!) Sea Smoke is like steam rising from the sea when the breeze blow over it. I've only seen it when it gets in the single digits. We get most of our fret in the spring and summer.

Yes, Caroline, that is what it is!

Hi Randi, thanks, I caught it just as the sun's first rays were hitting it.

Hi Eileen, it's bone chillin'!

Nah, Hip Chick, we'll leave the sun bathing to the Polar Bears on Coney Island!

I have never heard of sea smoke, either. Very scenic, in a gripping sort of way. Thanks for a great post.

Never heard it called "sea smoke" before, but an extra layer sounds like good advice!

Especially after seeing the buoy.
