Misty beauty

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:

The lake is still and beautiful

With rising mist in shades of pink.

Mist.jpg

The moon admires itself in the water –

Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.

(I’ve forgotten my big camera —

But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

  74. Beautiful images. As for the camera, photography is kind of like golf. It has more to do with the person holding the camera rather than the camera itself. I’ve been looking at images that my uncle captured in North Africa, Italy, and France during world war 2. He had to use paper film because of wartime restrictions and develop the film himself but he made some pretty great photos.
