I began this week with two versions of the same subject. I loved the grace of this orchid and took numerous photos and tried various things to accent how perfect as it was. It was a white orchid and so lent itself to lots of different tones and lack of tones.
We had a September rain of 1 1/2 in a few hours and so the next morning was very foggy. It was a wonderful opportunity to take familiar landscapes in very different circumstances.

Speaking of color there is a lot of talk this time of year about the aspens and just what sort of fall it is going to be. I am rather pessimistic because we had too long of a drought period this summer with the monsoons coming too late. Even the leaves, still green, seem to be smaller. And they are not turning the intense bright green which precedes the gold. This stand of aspens did have some of that green. Hoping to take another photo this next week showing gold.
But the grasses are beginning to show more yellows and the ponds have reached that mirror like clarity that colder nights seem to bring. Enough to make this photographer happy.
And fog again. Misty autumn mornings are wonderful. One of my favorite times of the year. And what photographer would not love it.
