Morning sun and mist

The temperature dropped last night and this created some beautiful scenes today as the morning sun and mist combined. Any open field or pond had this subtle but contrasty look that was in some instances surreal. I’d gone to a commercial building fire before dawn and then stopped at park area¬†on the way home to take a few photos.

The sun was very harsh in a cloudless sky. In the distance, the final stages of a low hanging mist can be seen along the field. Larry Shapiro photo

At this hour, the mist was most strongly pronounced over water as seen here with this small pond. Larry Shapiro photo

I applied a Tijuana filter from OnOne Perfect Effects to the second image for a different feel.
