Early morning pictures in the early fall

We have a lot of early morning fog and mist this time of year. When I looked out this morning, I saw the sun shining through the mist in the most lovely way and had to get my camera.






These pictures were all taken within a few short minutes. I love the way the light changes and gets more intense. I took about 50 pictures, but since they are all rather similar (I was trying to get some good shots with the birds in the bushes. I was thinking of you, Sharon!) I just picked out a couple of them to show. I think I need to get the paints out again...

These are wonderful! Isn't digital the greatest?! I mean ... back in the old days it would cost you a pretty penny to develop 50 pictures!

Lovely compositions. I often take snapshots in the evenings, when the night sky is dark blue and the Ash tree in my garden is start black.

It creates a silhouette effect, which is how I'd describe your photos.

BTW, you are in S.Germany I see. I was stationed in N.Germany back in 1954/5 for two great years in the RAF. Loved it then and have been back for a short 'memory lane' trip to Monchen Gladbach, Wegberg and surrounding areas. Super time.

That should have read *stark black*, (I'm an eejit!)

Beautiful pictures! We have heavy dewy mornings too. Sometimes its so cool that the mist (we call them spirits)float atop the pond.
I love these kinds of days.

Renate, these are wonderful photos. It is an interesting sequence. I like how the background in the mist/fog is like a ghost image. Yes, do get the paints out again! I really enjoy your painting. I think this type of imagery could be a great inspiration for backgrounds in you work.
