and the mist

Oh ya, one other thing. Prague is bathed in this very ethereal mist. I can't get my finger on what it is - its not like Fog, and its not like pollution either...its the distance doesn't show up as well here for some reason.

The only way I can think to explain it is in terms of video games. When you have a 3d game there is a point where the game stops rendering the landscape and the view ahead of you and it turns into a gray mist. This is called the clipping plane. It seems to me that Prague has a very short clipping plane. Anyone know anything about this?
