At Dawn



There was a wonderful mist all around yesterday morning as I took my daughter to school.  When I got back home, I grabbed my camera and went out to shoot at the baseball field next to my home, and in the park.  Then I thought I would try my favorite farm, but was disappointed by the light.  As I drove further up the road to turn around, I pulled into an unfamiliar lane.

And there I found a small pond, nestled in a hollow, where the mist had gathered and the light was wondrous.  Eureka!  Don't you love it when that happens?  ;)

Beautiful Mary - I love the mist and the way the light flows through. And yes - the photo you asked about was the view from my front porch the other morning.

There are days, and then there are DAYS! Your photos are always lovely, but this one is spectacular.

Yesterday at the beach, there was a magical light, I got some of the best photos I have ever took. SOC. No retouching at all. See there are days, and then there are days.....

Gorgeous! Love the flair and the magic of the mist! Were you squealing with glee? I would've acted like a 2 year old at this discovery - clapping and giggling! What a find!!!

P.S. Throw your wallet and your cell phone in the camera bag and call it a day. You are a professional now! Who needs a purse?

What amazing light. I need to get outside earlier in the morning! Although, around here, I don't see such beautiful lakes and fields, but maybe there's something...
