One Morning

The area around our home has been so beautiful lately as the warm fall days have lingered on, starting with crisp misty mornings and sharpening into crystal blue skies.  I'd been meaning to take my camera with me more on my drives to pick up the kids and groceries, but kept forgetting.  On Sunday morning, I could tell that conditions would be nice for photos so I took a quick little drive with my Sony.
We live right along the Kentucky River, and the fog hangs low in the valley on the days when the temperatures vary a lot.  Above is what it looked like as I left the house...
Then as I reached the barn...
And up on the hill looking back over our farm and the river valley that is enclosed in the fog.

I love our neighborhood which is a mixture of a small old-timey creekside town, historic rock walls and very old, established cattle and tobacco farms, and stunning throroughbred horse farms, some of which are owned by super-wealthy international dignitaries.
Tiny creeks feed into larger Glenn's Creek which flows through Millville and many of the prettiest horse farms.
These trees at Diamond A farm have been stunning all season.
I make my way around a loop through the fancy farms and then back toward ours, stopping to laugh at a neighbor's good sense of humor!
And then I'm back home to our more nature-filled farm home, where the fog is still laying in the valley...
Pin It Now!

I love watching the fog come up off the river in the morning. Aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the Kentucky? Your photos are terrific!
