I took my normal route to pick up Julie for our weekly quest to find the perfect image. We decided that with Fall we could actually get up early enough to catch the first rays of sun, and as I drove past the Lime Lake county park I glanced in that direction. The mist was rising off the lake and the sun was coming up over the trees on the far side.
After shooting several photographs, I started back to the car – and stopped. I had almost missed this beautiful tree silhouetted against the sun-rise mist.
