Indeed where the sun had dislodged it from the trees, you could believe it was snow

The fog was flowing through the wind gaps to top up the Wealden basin

FWIW the fog was showing signs of seiches, that is oscillating, first being high on one side and low on the other, and then reversing. I didn't have time to stop and check on this occasion, but our house when we lived in Kent also looked out across the Weald. On occasion the fog in the basin would 'seiche', covering the lower end of the village and leaving a good view of the hills on the far side, then reversing, clearing the village and obscuring the hills, and repeat. Amplitude about 30m on each edge, period about 1 hour.
