#14-bales of corn silage wait and a flock of birds fly up out of the standing corn behind it.
#13-the fog is wearing off, the magic almost gone!
#12-like a diamond in the sky!
#10-this one is my favorite, I like the cows and the horses in the pink-tinged sunlight. In the hazy sunlight behind the pasture is power line structure, barely visible because of the haze created by the sun and the fog.
#9-even the old dead trees are transformed with fog and sunlight from ugly to beautiful.
#8-full sun filtered by one tree.
#7-taken just seconds later, this light is a whole different color than the previous photo.
#6-sunbeams point every which-a-way through the different trees.
#5-sunbeams cross the road.
#4-a silo with a halo was breathtaking and was almost surreal to look at even in the viewfinder, the barns standing below it barely visible on the ground.
#3-two lone trees guard the crops in the peachy light.
#2-you have your work cut out for you!
This is what it looked like outside the window on Wednesday morning as I grabbed the keys to head to the car to take my son to school.
So, I had to grab the camera: I used the telephoto for almost all these shots.
Sun plus fog equals beautiful photos, straight out of the camera.
The interesting thing about all the photos above is that they were shot all in one hour, all from the driver's or passenger's windows of my car, I didn't step out of the car for one shot.
I did, though, have to check my rear view mirror alot, even though I was on back roads, dirt roads.
What I like about the photos is the color of the light in almost every photo is different. It depends on what the light is shining through and what the light had to go around to get to my lens.
Some of the light seems white, some yellow or orange.
The higher the sun rose in the sky, the less ethereal the pictures became. And when the sun had burned off the last of the fog, I was done haunting the back roads and went back home.
There's nothing better than chasing the fog on an early morning in September when the trees are still trying to decide which color to wear: green or golden.
Next week, the whole picture will be different because our nightly temperatures are dipping lower and lower and lower, bringing the color to the trees in brilliant shades.
Taking photos freezes these moments and doesn't let them run away from us.
(If you'd like, please vote for your favorite shot in this series.)
September, you were beautiful! Now, we welcome October with open arms and breathe a sigh of relief as the heat goes away, leaves change, the grass slows down its new growth and apples and cider become our new best friends again!
