Due to the contrast in temperatures between the night and the first rays of sun, the fog and the steaming water of the Ter River mix with the clear sky, creating a mysterious atmosphere, as if it were a Gothic horror novel.
We can observe the sun's rays through the mists with the cormorant waiting for the sun to dry. Smoky water occurs when rivers, lakes, reservoirs or even the sea are at a much milder temperature than the air at certain times of the day, especially at dawn.
Smoke is produced in this contact zone between the different temperatures of water and air, giving rise to this spectacular, ghostly phenomenon.
The mist also allows us to partially see the autumn trees and, when it dissipates, we can observe autumn in its maximum splendor.
