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!
