A Cold, Frosty and Foggy Morning

A Cold, Frosty, and Foggy Morning

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.”  ~Edwin Way Teale

Most photographers think of the Fall season as an opportunity for capturing the changing colors of the trees or watching leaves as they flutter to the ground. It is also the season for harvesting and preparing for the coming of winter as well as a time when our mornings turn colder, frost turns the landscape a pale shade of white and fog delays the warming rays of the sun. To me that’s a good time to be out with a camera in hand.

Seeing as a Child

Something’s Missing

“It is part of the photographer’s job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveller who enters a strange country.” – Bill Brandt

I do need to be more of a child when experiencing this world of ours.

Cold October Morning


It was a cold morning, 33 degrees with the humidity at 89% and clear skies. Perfect time to head out east for Autumn images. Five miles out and I can see the fog shrouded around the trees. My mind is racing to come up with a location to setup and shoot. I turned south on County Road 13 heading for a cattail pond. But, as I get there the fog looks more appealing so I move on farther. It was a good decision. Nature was showing off giving me glimpses of the ghostly trees, frost on the fences and the sun intermittently peaking through the fog. Another good morning to be out.

County Road 19

Evening Sunset on County Road 19

Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do. – Wendell Berry

Evening sunset taken a couple of weeks ago on County Road 19, just east of Fort Collins.

10 Shots

Wonder What’s on the Other Side

I thought I would show you with these images what a walk around my hotels provide for images. These 4 images were all taken at the same hotel on the same morning and all within about 45 minutes. I get in some exercise and look for images. The hole in the fence was what I saw.  I took 4 images. Continue reading »

The Corn is Getting Tall

The Corn Field

A drive out east on County Road 15 showed lots of corn fields with some very tall corn stalks. Everything is green out there from all the irrigation with a coolness not found in the city limits. Kinda nice place to be. I’m off on a 3-day trip today, see when I get back.

I’ll Be Back

Morning Starburst

The city has worked on the Red Fox Meadows Nature area over the past 3-5 years. I just happened to be near the area and noticed the added improvements and turned car around to check it out. They have improved the walking path from the muddy trails to pea size gravel, added some fencing and signs in the restoration areas and a bathroom. I was impressed. I was also impressed with the sun as it rose above the trees to start it’s task of warming up the day. And, this park is only three blocks away. I’ll be back!
