The ruggedly wild and dramatic landscape of HCC draws in visitors from around the planet every summer. But if you visit in the late autumn months, you’ll see the incredible landscape through a different lens! Fog can add depth and texture to a scene, softening edges and providing a moody ambience. From delicate, gauzy ribbons of fog hanging on tree branches, to thick fog rising like clouds above waterways, it envelops the landscape in a mysterious and alluring beauty. Wondering where the best spots are for taking in visually striking scenes? We’ve compiled some of our favourite fog-viewing locations below!
