Misty Morning


This morning I walked out of the house, with camera in hand, thinking of a photo project.  


Then, my husband pointed out that I should look at the mist rising from our natural springs.  




A hillside slopes right in front of our old farmhouse, where a natural spring flows out in three waterfalls.  



With the temperature change, the mist was rising fast, and it didn't last long.  



"Morning is wonderful.  Its only drawback is that it comes at such an inconvenient time of the day."

    1. Birdman, these are actually Sycamore trees. They are standing on the slope of the hill. You have to walk all the way down the hill to reach the waterfalls.

  12. One thing about being retired is that we can arise at the sensible hour of like.. 9 am. Yesterday I had an early volunteer training workshop and had to get up at 6:30 am. Ugh! But one thing about morning is that you get to see things like mist. I remember mist. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
