Morning Glory:

Taken one handed while driving down the road - 5th and final shot... :shock: Do not attempt to do this!!

Morning Inspiration II:


Morning Inspiration I:


That is the same locale, taken a couple minutes later (already posted in another thread)... I am glad I turned around and came back to take these photos! Lot of weird stares as I used a monopod beside a fence beside the main road...

Hope you enjoy them! I'm about ready to get going again on the road, etc. so it's an exciting time. I am leading a field trip tomorrow on macro photography after teaching the class Thursday night - should be fun!

Regards,
Marc

1 is gorgeous. I think 2 is just a bit too dark, but 3 is very pleasing. Thanks for posting and drive carefully!

Isn't nature wonderful, well captured . I especialy like the golden hues of the first one.

Awesome shots! They make me regret not taking the time to turn off the road I was driving this morning - it was transitioning from bright sunlight to fog and I caught a quick glimpse of the tendrils of fog at the edge. I pressed on instead of turning around (sigh).

Thanks for sharing these lovely shots.

Beautiful shots, Marc. So often, I find myself seeing similar beauty in an Arkansas morning and I don't take the time to stop and capture it. Congratulations to you for taking the precious time and coming up with a moment that can be treasured.

I might just have to mosey over the hills to take one of your classes.

Thanks Glenn for the comments!

To clarify on the darkness:

The third shot was taken almost 6 minutes after the preceding image, so much of the fog was starting to burn off by this point.

In #2, I intentionally wished to preserve how dark it really was in that portion of the foggy landscape across the field. As you can see the fog was much denser and therefore if I exposed the landscape (not the sun) I would have lost the deep reds in the sun - it would have washed out. Hope that makes sense.

Of course this is photography and inherently subjective!

Regards,
Marc

LOL!
I did the same thing on my motorcycle but, I had the camera hanging around my neck, just lifted it and pointed out in front of me through the winshield in a blind shot fashion just to see what it would look like
