Morning fog on farm road

Fall is my favorite time of the year. As the season changes and temperatures drop quickly at night, the air temp and dew point get within 5 degrees of one another causing fog to form in low lying open areas or over water. This happens pretty frequently in September and October in Maryland and makes for some great photographic opportunities each morning. 

One morning in October presented such an opportunity and I took some time to visit a local farm nearby my home. I arrived about 30 min before sunrise giving me plenty of time to find some good subject material. As I drove around, I came upon this scene where the fog was moving across the road and field, being carried by the calm breeze. Twilight was upon me and I was captivated by the mystery of this. There is something about a fog covered road that I am drawn too. Perhaps it is not knowing what is beyond. The muted colors and calm quiet are inviting. I could hear the geese and horses in the distance. It was a peaceful time to be out shooting and capturing the beauty of our world.
