Misty Morning

outdoor-wednesday-morning-glory-selep-imagingEarlier this autumn I took my camera and drove around on a misty morning, checking out some country roads and favorite spots.

This fall has had many gray and rain filled mornings, and other days with a light fog or mist.


The photographs from misty days can be moody.
Lighting can change from minute to minute.

The still images seem moodier then when you are actually standing outside, feeling the slight breeze, the cold damp water, smelling the wet grass, and hearing the mist-muted sounds of nature. The images do capture the feeling of solitude.

The images become more dramatic when it is actually raining.

I am sometimes uncomfortable with my moody photographs - usually I like to have bright happy images that cheer the viewer. But I also like the memory of the quiet solitude.

I'd like to read your options on the various images - I know I will be searching out more misty days to photograph, because the results are intriguing.

outdoor-wednesday cedarburg-wisconsin selep-imagingI'll leave you with a photo from the same day that I find very uplifting.

There is something very incredible about the brilliant blue of morning glory flowers.

I found this plant with a golden field behind it.

I really like the third one. Something about it is very surreal..

Pauline said...

i too like the third one, even though it is rainy it reminds of me peace and someone headed home for a warm bowl of soup and some hot chocolate

The blues are spectacular... but i really really enjoy your quiet foggy shots.

They are very mood filled ones that I could really enjoy.

Have the best week... TTFN ~~ Claudia ♥ ♥

The covered bridge looks so pretty, with the misty feel! But the morning glory sure did brighten the day.

Have a great outdoors!

Your photo's are beautiful. A like the moody ones but I know what you mean with feeling a bit uncomfortable with the darker ones. I adore your pictures # three and four, the water and the trees with the bridge on one. Beautiful.
Have a nice day, hopefully sunny.

Hmmm. I tend to post sunny photos but actually like to see mist or rainy photos on other blogs so maybe I ought to challenge myself to take more greyish photos. I like yours a lot.

Your photos are beautiful. I've always thought that pictures with fog or mist were thought provoking, so I loved your beautiful images. The final shot with the morning glories was a perfect way to end the series. Have a great Outdoor Wednesday.

I love moody photos. They have a mystic to them. We have had the same weather here. Most all of my son's football games have been in the misty weather. I got some great pics even if it is horrible to watch a game in that kind of weather.

Mama Zen said...

These are all truly lovely!
