Morning Drive

I love early mornings when there is a little mist hovering over the ground. It makes the whole countryside look so beautiful! I was driving to work a few mornings ago on a day like that, and I took a few pictures to share my morning drive with you.

Just down the road from my house - a beautiful start to the day!





Fields shrouded in mist





Looking ahead, down the gravel road.






The sun - shining through the mist!





The sun lends a golden glow to the mist in the fields.




And as I near my destination, I pass this corn field, where an old tractor is running an irrigation pump, watering the dry fields.

On days like this, I would like to keep driving and enjoying this beauty, but my work awaits. Still - it's such a great way to start the day!

It would be a shame to sleep in and miss all this beauty. No matter what the season, the country is beautiful!

I love morning fog like that! I'm not usually out driving that early unless I have an auction so when I see it I always want to stop and take a picture. Your photos are beautiful!

Some days I would like to stay in a fog like this - these photos are so pleasant and relaxing! We had a little fog across the street in the park! It looked lovely.

One of my goals for this coming school year is to leave early enough to be able to stop and take photos of my beautiful drive. You, like me, are blessed with incredible scenery that truly shows off God's handiwork. These are awesome photos, Mari! My favorite is the one of the golden grain field. The tractor is a close second. The last three esp. would make lovely cards. I can see them in Dayspring.:>)
