Saturday Encore ~ I woke up in a total fog this morning

One of my favorite photo shoots of all time happened just about a year ago, on a rare foggy New Mexico morning. I thought these images were worthy of an encore.

I woke up in a total fog this morning, then decided to make the best of it.

I had to look pretty hard to find the boys out in the pasture, but once I did, I spent an hour oohing and ahhing at the colors and the sky, and took a few pictures along the way. I hope you find as much enjoyment looking at these pictures as I did taking them.

  1. Oh my gosh, those are some awesome pictures! We have foggy mornings here quite a bit and I love to look out and see how different everything looks .. kind of eerie, yet beautiful.

    This morning the almost full moon was hanging over the mountain, giving this valley a beautiful glow, and I watched til it slowly went behind the mountain, leaving me in absolute darkness, but as my eyes adjusted there were a million stars to enjoy. What a way to start my day!

  3. Ooh! Aaahh! We had some lovely fog in New England too this morning. Somehow makes me feel closer to you. But where are Deets' little black cat feet this morning?

  9. Yes, all these photos are really stunning! But I emphasis the fog11 (wonderful grass color); fog12 (great sky color and cute Alan); fog13 (amazing) and fog14 (amazing the transparent rabit ears) and finally, fog16 (what a gorgeous view!).
    Have a nice weekend.

  10. Great pictures. It's so unusual to see foggy gray pictures instead of the bright azure skies. Makes things look mysterious and magical.

    I'm so jealous! Fog here just means more tailights on the interstate. Love your photo's.
