The weather almost reached 50˚F this afternoon. Definitely a rarity for December in Michigan, the temperatures are supposed to slowly drop tomorrow as rain begins to move in. But we may actually have a little snow on Christmas Day, just enough to cover the ground. We will see if I get my white Christmas or not.
I originally went outdoors to photograph some birds. My feeders were being overrun with Sparrows, Titmouses, and Black Capped Chickadees. I love these diminutive birds; they seem to “chirp” at me when I just step out the door. Trust me; they are all very vocal when the feeders are low.
After a while, my attention turned to the clouds. They were just beautiful. One person on my Facebook page describes the clouds as a “stairway to heaven.” The stunning array was a perfect setting as the sun slowly began to sink below the tree lines.
As soon as the sun started to set, the fog began to roll in….sounds like a good beginning for a book.
The sun was already beginning to set in the above photo, but the clouds were still gorgeous.
The fog rolled across the field, I actually watched the mist cover the ground. I found the experience fascinating.
The sun was setting, but the fog just covered the bottom of the ground.
I am sure there are better more scientific words to describe the fog, the clouds and the sun. But I just like photographing the natural world around me.
