Love Of Nature, Photography, Gardening And Country Valley Living

Thursday, August 18, 2011



It has been cool the past few days and the mornings have been dewy but this morning is getting humid and sticky. I had to close the windows and turn the AC on. I much prefer to have my windows open so I can smell the fresh air and hear the sounds of nature around the Cove. We are to get rain and thunderstorms this afternoon.

    I took these photos this morning of the fog hovering over the valley as the sun was rising and reflecting off of the fog !




    Then yesterday I was roaming around the garden looking for more to photograph, sometimes things are just to quiet and there's nothing to take pictures of !

                                                         But I found this little guy !



                     He was a bit camera shy and kept turning his back to me !

                                Until next time, hope you all have a great day !

Your misty morning photos are lovely! We have multitudes of grasshoppers here in Iowa right now.

How do you make an ugly little grasshopper a pretty picture

I love fog photos, it shrouds everything with a bit of mystery. Really cool little grasshopper!

I love those shots of the fog! pretty cool!

You are one brave lady taking photos of that grasshopper! I'd be afraid he'd jump on me and then I'd scream and drop my camera!

Wonderful images. I really like to be able to keep the windows open, too, especially at night while sleeping. There is just nothing like "outside" air.

The fog is beautiful. The grasshopper is so cool. Great job on all.

That feeling of fall is in the air, but summer is pretty persistent with the humidity, isn't it?

I love the pictures of the grasshopper. I was taking photos of one today, and I think he was posing for me!!

I hope you're doing well, and have had a good week! I've missed your blog--Terrific photos yesterday too!!
