One Misty Morning

Updated on September 12, 2012
Source

A Beautiful Morning!

The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is open the kitchen curtains to look out on the orchard and check-out the new morning.

This one is a real treat - it’s misty and the sun is shining! A photographers delight.

No time for a cup of coffee; timing is crucial in capturing that magical moment.

A Perfect Light

I quickly pull on a pair of jeans over my pyjamas, an old hat on my ruffled, sleep induced hairdo, grab a jacket and my camera and rush out.

There is something magical and mysterious about a misty morning, that sets the photographers pulse in me racing.

Especially when the sun is just rising, the light is quite magnificent.

'My' Time of the Day

Every morning I go for a jog down the lane, through the churchyard over the field and back through the orchard.

Chances are I won’t see anybody and I always consider this ‘my’ time of the day.

I always linger in the churchyard, it’s one of the most peaceful places I know. Some churchyards can be a little spooky and make you feel uncomfortable, but this one has a wonderful, gentle and spiritual atmosphere.

Sadly, the orchard is neglected these days and there are a lot of old, decaying and fallen trees, but they still look beautiful in their own way.

Already you can see the bunches of mistletoe growing up in the branches. My husband and I always enjoy collecting some to hang in the rooms for Christmas.

A Breathtaking Sight

The rays of the sun shining through the trees is quite breathtaking this morning and the light and colour simply magical.

I am so absorbed in running around taking photos, I must have covered double the distance I normally do in my daily exercise.

Hopefully I am not being watched, to an observer I must look a frightening sight running around frantically in the mist, I suppose I could be mistaken for some sort of ghostly apparition!

The Magical Moment Captured!

Arriving home I take off my jacket and remove my trainers, bubbling with excitement I tell Nick about the beautiful mood of the morning and the fabulous scene I’ve been so lucky to enjoy.

Just a few minutes later walking into the kitchen, to make that much needed cup of coffee, I looked out of the window and the mist was gone!

The joy of photography is all about timing and capturing that magical moment before it disappears.

On so many occasions when I have looked out of the window and seen the sun rising or a beautiful sunset, I’ve dashed around quickly putting on jacket and trainers, run up the lane only to find the sun has risen or set and I have missed it!

This misty morning I got my timing right, what a wonderful start to the day, for me there is no better.

I get a real thrill out of taking photos of nature and an even bigger thrill out of sharing them.

      Hi Peg, realising after the misty morning that a magical moment can be lost just a few seconds later, I now am permanently attached to my camera!! in and out of pjs:-)

      What a vision you have given us here with your lovely photos and your funny story. Within is a lesson I've also learned: be quick with the camera or lose the moment. You were right to dash out in your pjs and take these stunning pictures. I loved them!

      Voted all the way up even funny!

      These are precious and few.

      This is a wonderful hub! You photos are beautiful. It's funny that we are so far apart and yet so much alike. I too, put my jeans and sweatshirt on over my pajamas, grab a cap to cover my hair, jump into my tennis shoes and run outside with my camera. Luckily, I walk in the woods on our place, so I don't run into anyone that could see me looking such a sight. Although, I might scare a few deer! LOL Very good hub, voted up and beautiful! Have a glorious day, my friend! :)

      Just beautiful MM, perfect timing, your images are awesome!! And what wonderful inspiration right outside your door! I love the ones through the overhanging branches and the bramble berry vines, but I love them all.

      Some times I am lucky with timing but too many times I have been unprepared when a moment presents and is gone. I am so glad you were organised and caught these magical moments to share with us. This hub excites me no end because I can feel your excitement and satisfaction - my votes to you MM.

      MM, this Hub is superb! I completely relate to the early morning being "my" time of the day--I'm up at 5 a.m. walking my dog every day. Too bad there's no sun at 5 a.m. this time of year! Thank you for sharing these stunning photos. The potential of the early morning is like the first page in a new notebook, or the first cut of that fresh cake--intensely new and full of unimaginable possibilities! Congratulations on your wonderful "catch" that morning.

      Your work really draws one into the scenes. They would be great imagination starters, beside just beautiful to enjoy. I think I like the one with the arching bramble in front the best. It makes me want to go under the bramble and into the stand of trees to see what is in the light beyond. They are all gorgeous, though! Thanks for sharing your misty morning light.

      I rise too late to catch the morning mist, but I do go for the sunsets. I know what you mean about timing. It's been storming here today, and I needed to go to an outbuilding. As I headed out the door, I got no farther that the porch when I saw a lovely rainbow. Quickly I went back for the camera and got a few pictures, then back to the shed. When I approached the shed, I saw the other end of the rainbow, or at least part of it, in that opposite direction. Grabbed what I came for, back to the house, grabbed the camera again, hoping that second end of the bow would still be there. It was, but only a small piece of it. I did get the picture.

      As to mist, I remember one night when I was in college at UCLA. I was out for a walk around the campus with someone I thought I'd fallen in love with at first sight, on a foggy night. We had walked all over the campus and through the botanical garden. As we were headed back to the dorm we lived in, we came through the center of campus to the steps beyond Royce Hall and the Powell Library. The steps go all the way down the hill and on either side at night there are lamp posts all the way down. You will have to imagine those ribbons of misty light going all the way down the hill like a fairy pathway, since taking a picture was far from my mind and I had no camera on me. I will never forget, though, the magic moment of seeing his.

      I love morning colors in photographs, they are clean and have clarity in details. Even when there is haziness, the compositions in photographs look great. Thanks for sharing these amazing pictures.

      These pictures are so magical and beautiful. The rays shiining through the mist makes a wonderful composition and you've managed to capture it. Now, about the mistletoe--please some over. Love it and rated up.

      Absolutely marvelous photographs. I am more of a tree person, not so much a flower person, so I truly enjoyed your photographs.

      And the misty hours of early dawn (or late evening) are rather spiritual and mystical. Great accompanying text. Voted Up, Awesome, and Beautiful. :)

      I can just imagine a poem by the name of "Misty Morning",I love it! You are blessed with all that nature around you. I loved your photos, too. Here in S. Fl. our trees don't loose their leaves, and I kind of miss that although I don't miss the cold weather.

      Hi Mike, as my friend and mentor, I'll be taking your advice and recommendation and will start my book thus "Every morning I go for a jog down the lane, through the churchyard over the field and back through the orchard." Oh my goodness - that means I have started to write my book! that was just the push I needed....

      The light was just wonderful for taking photos - then just suddenly, it was gone!

      Your comments mean a great deal to me thank you, enjoy your day, MM

      Gorgeous! When God makes beauty He does it full force. And your discerning eye caught the light perfectly. That old saying about counting blessings? I think you do every day. Than you for sharing this new day.

      Hi Ann, I am always complaining about waking up so early, I just can't help it! but if I get up to a beautiful sunrise or any photo opportunity, I just love it!

      As I was taking these photos, I was actually thinking about your idea, of taking photos in the same places for the next season - another hub another day!

      Many thanks for your great comments, best wishes MM

      When you decide to write your book, I'd like to recommend this as your first line, "Every morning I go for a jog down the lane, through the churchyard over the field and back through the orchard."

      The pictures are so 'full', the light treated you so kindly.

      You shared your joy of the hunt and let us feast along side you with the bounty. Thank you.
