Beauty in a Muted Landscape

Heavy fog blanketed our portion of God’s green earth this morning. While driving in the fog was challenging at best, on a closer scale the landscape was pretty in many ways. Fog and heavy dew are indicative of calm conditions. Such conditions render most insects immobile until the sun breaks through to dry them off. Photography options are plentiful in these conditions

Rather than fret about the fog, I chose to create some images I will share with you.
