Back Road Beauty: Fog & Frost










It's hard sometimes to shoot a bad picture with perfect conditions:  fog and frost.  

Come along as I travel the back roads near our home and enjoy some of the scenery that I found.

I will have to take several days, as I shot for almost two hours, until the sun burned off the fog and erased the ethereal backdrop and made it all seem ordinary again.










What is so wonderful about shooting in the fog and the results from it are that you realize how different the light is, depending on which direction you aim.  This shot is heading into the sunrise...warmer light.























And then shooting away from the sun....less light and more fog, less color and more lonely...

































But I should hush up now and just let you enjoy the beauty and magic that is an ordinary late fall morning...









Enjoy what God put here to embellish what he saw fit to create ...








And take a minute to see what a hard-working farmer puts here too...

















































Have a wonderful day...and look for the magic that sometimes will come to what you might think is just an ordinary place...

It's what makes for a special feeling:  just being alone with the surroundings that are ordinary in a magical way.

Joni,
So romantic, beautiful, glorious.
Isn't the beauty in God's creation a matchless blessing?
