I've never heard the term "white horses" before, at least as it relates to the topic at hand. Now that I see some examples, I'll see what I have. I know I have a few shots, including last month's offering to the contest.

Sigurd Olson coined the phrase "galloping white horses" to describe the rising, dancing white clouds that form over warm water.

Mine isnt exactly a fog/mist picture but what i believe a "white horse" image is something that you imagine in your dreams and almost seems like a fantasy. and i dont have any pictures with fog :)

This is my screen saver so I can imagine waking up and seeing it for real every morning.

Above phot should be captioned "Brule Lake, July 2007". Sorry.
09/14/2009 11:27PM
Mist? Fog? Clouds? I thought "white horses" were fast-running waves with white foam crests.

I don't have any pictures of being on it in a canoe. Either I'm not on the water or I'm too busy for picture taking. :)

Here's one of Jim on a good chop this past June.

Sigurd F. Olson Web Site: Denis Coolican's 1955 Churchill River ...Joining Denis and Sigurd Olson on this trip were Omond Solandt, ..... a small rapids with one or two very large white horses at the bottom of the portage. ...

That's what I thought also. Sorry no pictures either.

"Mist? Fog? Clouds? I thought "white horses" were fast-running waves with white foam crests."
Ditto - but I did post a picture that follows the foggy theme.

Dancing morning mist or white foamy crests? Turns out...it's both.

In "The Singing Wilderness" Sigurd Olson uses the sentence "in the morning when the white horses of the mists are galloping out of the bays". In "The Lonely Land", the term white horses is used in describing the running of rapids.

I thought this was white caps rather than fog, but in any event this picture seems in keeping with the general theme.
