Morning Mist and White Stuff!

A couple of weeks ago the sun rose behind the trees directly into a blue sky, but with the cool fall temperatures, the mist was lying across our meadow.  It's not the usual sunrise, but I got some neat shots of sunbeams through the morning mist.

The sun first showed up as a bright spot behind the maple trees in the fencerow.

As it rose, it highlighted the mist in the meadow.

Very very briefly it was just a beautiful morning; a lot of careful cropping to create these shots.

This shot, like all of these, was shot through the living room windows.

And behind me (out the front window), the sunrise was catching the Sugar Maples across the road.

Today however, it was quite different stuff falling from the sky - our first noticeable snowfall, about an inch around here.  Snapped these on my drive home from further south.

The meadow and the yard are looking very different now, but it will all be gone by tomorrow afternoon.  The temperature is forecast to rise to nearly 10°C. by mid-afternoon.  And we aren't quite ready for this yet!

  1. I hope you can keep that white stuff in your neck of the woods until we are well south of our present location.
    The sun never made any appearances today and I am still frozen from working outside today.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. I love the pictures of the mist. Even the snow pictures are lovely though it pains me to say anything good about snow.

  6. The last picture is like a postcard. Love it. I was looking at some old pictures of snow at our cabin. We haven't seen any for two years now. The climate is really changing. - Margy

  7. That is quite a quick change of seasons. I really admire your sun rays in your photos. I don't think I have ever seen such a view like this. I see them in the sky from clouds but not through the trees.

  12. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  13. Hello!:) The sunray shots in the mist are beautiful, and so are the bright orange leaves of the Maple Trees. It has only snowed twice in my lifetime, here in Portugal, and when it did, it looked just like sprinkled iceing suger, like in your photos, and only lasted a few hours. Have a great weekend,...without snow!
