On a short hike today the fog began to close in rapidly causing me to cut the hike short. As I returned to where I had parked, I was drawn to the colors of a willow tree (to the left in the first photo) that grows beside a pond on a ranch at the bottom of the canyon, and I decided to venture down near it for a photo.
Upon taking that photo, I was drawn to the tree in about the center of the photo and framed it for another shot which I liked even better than the first. Something about the fog…
There is always a beautiful scene (or one that I consider so) awaiting those who pass by.
Yesterday in the early morning, just as the fog over the river began to lift and I happened to be positioned just at the edge of it, I was struck by two different scenes that Nature presented.
These two photos were taken only two minutes apart, the first of a little window facing away from the fog and the sun and the second facing down stream into the fog and about ninety degrees from the sun, each making the world appear entirely differently. Such is the natural world.
