Misty reflections

Rich autumn colours with pools of gold;

The mist wrapped tenderly around the trees like a warm scarf

While they admire their perfect reflections;

The pastel clouds rising up to greet the blue hour of a new day.

Have you ever seen a more delicious sunrise?

  2. That is perfect! What a beautiful good morning call.

  3. No, I have not, this one takes my breath away. I guess that is the reward for living way up north – the sun makes up in beauty for all the days it is absent.;)
    Incredible photography as always.

  6. I love that quote by Emerson. Even the most beautiful place in the world can be ugly if you view it through a prism of negatively. You always inspire me.

    Now that is stunning. I wonder if you try to paint these photos or enlarge them and frame them as art in your home? I would.

    November 18, 2010 at 22:22

    • I can’t paint. But I’d certainly like to frame some of these – both for the home and the office.

      November 19, 2010 at 05:46

  17. Beautiful. Would be stunning enlarged and framed or turned into a painting.

    November 18, 2010 at 23:18

    November 19, 2010 at 01:38

  23. The photo makes me gasp in appreciation, Fi. You are very lucky to have seen it in person. The sun is rising in the water simultaneously as does in the sky.

    November 19, 2010 at 02:10

  24. Actually it looks a great deal like our Lake here in Oregon does sometimes! Amazingly alike really — but your picture is better than any of mine!.

    November 19, 2010 at 02:20

  25. Such tranquility..perfect start of a day…love the foggy mist rising from the water.

  64. Al

    Fantastic! The mist, the lovely sky, the hint of orange on the lake, that must have inspired you for the whole day.

    November 20, 2010 at 15:54

  65. land of shimp

    Oh Lady Fi!!! As I clicked over to your blog, and your header shows most recent pictures, this was the picture that greeted me and I swear to you I thought, “Oh, who’s that by?” (meaning, “I’m not familiar with that artist, he/she is spectacular!”)

    I honestly thought it was a painting, it so perfect and dreamy. It looks like the world passed through an artist’s brush, and rendered without flaw.

    Jeez oh Petes, I honestly can’t think of a nicer compliment about a picture: You captured the world in such a way that it seemed almost too perfect to be real…and then the astonishment when I realized, “Wait, that’s the world. That’s OUR world!!”

    Well done, perfectly done indeed!

    November 20, 2010 at 17:21

    • I’m bowled over by your kind kind comments. Really – the picture is hardly enhanced at all – it really was this beautiful in real life.

      I was so lucky to capture this moment of pure magic!

      November 20, 2010 at 17:29

  66. this is incredibly gorgeous, as is your puppy in the next post.

    November 22, 2010 at 07:18

    Thanks for sharing that.

    November 24, 2010 at 14:09

  69. The answer would be no, I have not seen a more delicious sunrise. This is gorgeous.

    November 24, 2010 at 17:01

  70. I was so struck by the beauty that I failed to comment a few days ago. Not so surprising, really — between your words and the image you captured, I’m still not sure what to say. Perhaps “Thank you!”

    November 25, 2010 at 02:24

  71. No. It is amazing. Absolutely!

    November 25, 2010 at 05:41

  72. JM

    This is absolutely beautiful! What a fantastic capture!

    November 29, 2010 at 19:27

  73. It’s absolutely beautiful! Well captured, and lucky you for being there to see it!

    Also – happy birthday to Oscar – just a week late. He’s almost a year older than Lucy.
