Autumn Morning at the Lake


Kaefer had a big cross country meet at the lake yesterday morning. They were the first group to run, so we arrived at the lake even before the sun had risen over the hill. The mist was still hanging over the lake, but you could see how the sky already cleared up. It was a perfect autumn morning, the kind I love.


When the sun climbed higher into the sky, he illuminated this bare tree and the surrounding trees on this little island. The lake itself was perfectly still.


It almost looked as if the water was on fire.


The ducks took flight from all those people who were there so untypically early.


And here's Kaefer (in blue) making the finish line.


The magic of the morning had gone by then.

Wow! beautiful lake views :-)

Well done to Kaefer for making the finishing line.

Beautiful, but I think the magic of the morning was still there when Kaefer crossed the finish line, because finishing is magic in itself!!
You go, girl!

Really fabulous photos! such beauty. This morning my 7 yr old twin grand children asked me over their Cherrios if I believed in God. I asked them what God was to them? I told them how I feel nature is where I find God(ness)...and your photos could be good examples of that.

Wonderful pictures! I'm still waiting to be at the right place on the right time and catch the mist like you did it so well.
I love the mist and the atmosphere on the pictures!
