Early Morning Fog

I rarely see a sunrise. They just come so early in the morning! But one recent morning, for whatever reason, I happened to be up when the sun was rising. I looked out the window and saw fog lying low on the horizon.

Then I went back to bed.

But I kept thinking about the photo opportunity I was missing. So I got up, got dressed, grabbed my camera, and walked across the road and to the back of the cemetery for an uncluttered view.

The soft glow of the sunrise and the low-lying fog, a soybean field and some Amish draft horses in the foreground...well, it was worth getting up for.

Thanks to Hilary at The Smitten Image for including this post as a Post of the Week.



  1. Was it ever! On the rare occasions that I've argued with myself about getting up to explore the hint of colour peeking through the window or explore the depths of my pillow, I never regret choosing the former. I'm glad you got out there, camera in hand. Thank you. These photos are just gorgeous.

  2. Yes, it was. Congrats on your POTW!

  3. I'm glad you decided to get up and capture these wonderful images.

    Congrats on being awarded POTW!

  4. indeed! glad you got back up for us! :)

  5. okay - had to come back and say congrats on POTW!!!

  6. I'll echo what others have glad you got up early this morning! Hummmmm, With these beautiful pics, I'm worndring if this could be the start of you being an early riser???!!!

  7. What magical shots. Gorgeous!

  8. Linda, you made me smile with your opening words "I rarely see a sunrise. They just come so early in the morning!"! :) I'm not an early riser either...

    Your story is as interesting as the photographs themselves. I like most the third photo, with the strip of the low-lying fog in the middle dividing the shot into two parts - the glowing orange on top and the dark soybean field bellow. It's simple but persuasive.

  9. WOW!! I am sure glad you did get up and take those pictures. They are gorgeous and too beautiful to miss.

  10. That is BEAUTIFUL! I have never seen a sunset around here with such vibrant orange color. Glad you listened to your gut and went to get these. Awesome!

  11. The fog is fun to play with. ihave gotten some good shots of it swirling away on water, but it shows better toones eyes. Going into CA my first time it was swirling like snow late at night, a bit erie while listening to Radio Mystery Theater .
