The season is short for early morning fog in the northwestern Georgia town of White where Old Car City USA is located. Photographers would do well to schedule their visits around those times when early morning fog settles in among the old classic cars and trucks here.
Photographers are welcome to shoot early morning fog pictures at Old Car City USA!
Old Car City has the distinct privilege among all the many car junk yards in America as a mecca for the creative photographers of the world. We have these artisans flocking to Atlanta’s nearby International airport specifically to visit the “world’s largest known classic car junkyard.”
Some of the greats who have come are:
- Richard Calmes (pronounced Kal-meez)
- Clint Brownlee
- Galen Dalrymple
- David Goldman(A/P)
- Cheryl Grogan
- Washington Post
- Joe Hoyle
- Elana Scherr of Hot Rod Magazine
- Roadside America
How does early morning fog develop, you ask?
…in general terms, fog formation is exactly the same process involved in the formation of clouds . . . fog is simply a cloud that forms over the ground…
…Fog is possible, but not entirely guaranteed, if the relative humidity is 100% (when RH% = 100%, that means that the air is saturated)…So, fog is the result of a “moist” air mass near the surface, which has reached saturation. (Source)
According to the information gleaned from the link in the quote above, fog in the north Georgia mountains might be more common because of how the air is saturated in low lying areas. It would behoove the photographer seeking to have early morning fog for pictures of our old classic cars to check with the meteorologists in the area and see when the fog is likely to occur.
Early morning fog photographs have a certain mystique. At Old Car City USA, we love how photographers can take a car junk yard full of old classic cars and find treasure after treasure in almost every shot!
As in the case of one artist listed above,
Cheryl Grogan, her photos combined with her talent with painting portraits become one-of-a-kind masterpieces. One such photo, shown here, hangs proudly in Mayor Deano’s office in Old Car City USA.
Remember everyone! Old Car City USA opens at 9 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday. If you desire to take early morning fog photos, please make arrangements to be there when our doors open. We welcome you with open arms!
