Morning Fog


trees in fog


Morning fog alters the atmosphere, washing out the background, and painting the foreground in simple shapes.



fall dogwood tree in fog


Not even a falling leaf makes a sound on the dampened earth.



Eastern White-tailed doe in fog


A young doe stands at attention and listens...



Eastern White-tailed buck in fog


...while a buck sniffs the air, depending on non-visual cues.





The ancient oak seems to listen, too, leaning into the fog.
What does he hear?

Beautiful fog pictures. I lived in the Ozarks many years ago (Northwest Arkansas) and wish they had iPhones back then. But, I never did see a deer. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

I think I actually gasped audibly when I saw your pictures....I need to thank you for sharing these more often. ( and yes, turtles cross there from one side of the wetland to another)
