A mist rises over the hayfields in the cool of the evening after a warm afternoon. Here in the Deep South we can have a 30-40 degree difference between day and night even in winter.

As the cool air hits the warm earth, especially out in the open fields, mist rises and moves across the land like smoke, creating blue and lavender blurred lines.
