Another Foggy Morning, Astronomy and an Owl

After an unseasonably cold snap, as warmer temps moved in in the early hours, we reached the dew point, leading to yet another, lovely, foggy morning. I drove around our neighborhood some for these pictures.




These next 2 shots are of the bird feeding area of my backyard.



A large, grass spider web in our backyard, with the funnel clearly visible.

Dissipating fog late in the morning.

In astronomical news, the Geminid meteor shower is Dec. 13-14.

In art news, my Barred Owl was "Daily Nature Photo" at The Nature Conservancy's website on Dec. 8th.

A couple of those shots I saved for wallpaper on my desktop computer. That's how much I liked them. Very, very cool. I liked the spider web one, too, with the funnel hole. That was really cool, too.

These pictures have ethereal quality to them. I can imagine myself listening to music in those places.

Looks like a dream. No snow. Lots of atmosphere.

I really liked the Roy Rogers holster and gun set. So long ago. I can't help but wonder what I was thinking when I just let it disappear.

Charles; Thanks, hon.

Michelle (artscapes); Me, too. I had to drag myself out of bed, but it was worth it.

Kelly; Glad you enjoyed.

celticmusicfan; Thanks.

Abraham Lincoln; Considering the hour of the day, it was probably partially a dream. *L* Sorry about your set. I sometimes wonder what's happened to my Mrs. Beasley doll...

yes, foggy mornings is made for photographs. I love the m too. And your shots are amazing.

Where I live evergreens are the most prevalent species as opposed to deciduous tress and fog is common. It's amazing to see the differences in the landscape between where I live and where you live. What really caught my eye this time is that amazing spider web - WOW!

What great fog shots! Can you send some of that moody atmosphere over this way?

Congrats on your owl shot, Lana!

There is something particularly romantic about early morning fog... unless you have to be driving down a busy highway. :)

I love all the pics, Lana. But numbers two and three are my favorites--they appeal to my horror side. Love 'em. :-D
