Beautiful Cyndee.  No mist here and that's a good thing because when the fog (mist) moves in it's dreadfully cold and miserable.  All that we have now is SNOW with more rain on the way shortly.  Have a great remainder of the weekend.  BTW, I bit the bullet and am working on the WS.  %$%$# it's not fun.

Great photo.  Just what I needed on a Sunday!

Ginger, this was taken right as sun was coming up and Ted & were driving by kinda fast as I said "Pull over NOW I have to get this photo!" Well it was near a rest stop and I had to run about 1/2 mile back to the lake, I know people were driving by thinking what the heck??? Just another day in my life,lol. I know you can do it, keep me posted, ok?

Kelly, you took the words right out of my brain! I like your sign off.

This is such a lovely photo, Cynthia! I would have a run a whole mile for this one! But then I'd probably have been too late to capture this so perfectly....

Well done...no matter how far you had to go to get it...it was worth it!  It looks like a painting.

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 10 years ago

That is just beautiful and I'm glad you jogged back for it.  I could look at this all day.  We get mist on Sinclair near the power plant where the water is so much warmer than the air around it, but it rarely occurs naturally in other places on the lake.  I'll have to keep my eye out for it.  And Ella did go beautifully with it too.

Aaron, sorry you slipped in while I was commenting. It was as beautiful as it looks!

Debbi, I know I looked like a goof but I didn't care and was really surprised no one stopped to see if I was running away from Ted, lol! No adjustments needed, it looked exactly as pictured.

Sharon, thanks, my poor Ted is always so accommodating when I yell STOP!

Miss Tammy Tot, Well I had my camera in my lap so Ted knew the drill, lol. Yes keep your eye out for it on your part of the lake! Thanks, I though of Ella singing that tune when I saw the outcome of the photo too! Great minds and all that stuff ;)

Posted by Cynthia Bartch over 10 years ago

Hi Cyn, Ah sigh...what a spectacular photo, I love the misty colors - very nice shot!  I read your comments how you ran back for it, it was well worth it:-)

Hello my friend-Long time no chat. Hope you are doing well. I have missed you. Working two jobs has kept me hopping. I love your pic. There was a place back home called Boldt Castle and a photographer caught it with a lot of fog and mist and it was so beautiful. Have a great week. <SMILE>

Cynthia, Thanks for dropping by my blog, You take  lovey pictures. Many of my posts have Mountain scenes in them drop back by sometime and I'll do the same. Steve

Mary, I was a huffin' and a puffin' but I just had to get the shot! Thanks for stopping by and for your nice words!

Long time no read Miss Sharon Lee, I've not been here on AR regularly for a few months also. Work ugh, it gets in the way of fun sometimes. Now when we can combine them then bingo!

Steve, Thanks I'm an amateur shutterbug just havin' fun. Yep I've visited your blog before but my avatar changed so you may not remember me, but I'll keep tabs on you! That was a fun post you did!

Cynthia, You captured a beautiful moment....at a wonderful time.  There is something calming and peaceful I see in this picture.

Posted by Laura Cerrano, Certified Feng Shui Expert, Speaker & Researcher (Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island) over 10 years ago

Cynthia - You have the gift of finding the perfect photo opp! Fog or mist can have a very dramatic impact when capturing a scenic photo. You have gift girl, get amateur out of your vocabulary, you hear?! Keep those photos coming. ;-)

Love the mist and the foggy days as much as any other day.

Posted by Gene Allen, Realty Consultant for Cary Real Estate (Fathom Realty) over 10 years ago

Morning Carole, I saw felt the same way as you, even though I was in a frenzied rush to catch the moment before it slipped away!

Morning Judy, You are waaay to kind, I can see the moment but capturing it is another thing altogether. Just when I think I have the perfect shot it turns out not so good. Oh well there's always next time, I think to myself. I delete more than I keep but I so appreciate your compliments! It means a lot :)

Morning Kathy, I looked like a nut running by the side of the highway but it was all worth it in the end. Thank you!

Morning Paul, You're oh so right, it did look like that! Love your signature line by the way :)

Morning Gene, You know what? I do too, nature gives us such beauty even on a misty foggy day, we just have to be aware of whats around us.

Posted by Cynthia Bartch over 10 years ago

Cynthia, your picture is awesome.  Its looks so laid back and peaceful.

Posted by Diane Williams over 10 years ago

Cynthia,

This picture is a real grabber. Creates a great mood - love the mist and the colors. :)

Posted by Steve Hoffacker, Certified Aging In Place Specialist-Instructor (Steve Hoffacker LLC) over 10 years ago

Just beautiful...very peaceful.  Sometimes these kind of scenes make you "stop and smell the roses" even when you didn't think there was time, and there are no roses...so you got a good guy, too?  My hubs can pull over on a dime, and do a U-ey almost as fast! Very nice catch, and capture! =o)

Cynthia - Nice photo! It reminds me of the early morning mist on Lake Katchewanooka in Canada.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 10 years ago

Diane, Well that's exactly what I saw too as we passed by this photo opportunity. Thanks for stopping by!

Steve, I also enjoyed the soft colors the early morning cast over the lake. I had to snap fast so I'm glad it came out, thanks for the kind words!

Cheryl, You always have a fun way with words, I think we both see roses where there are none ;) Yes I got a good one too, he indulges my brisk shout of "STOP"! Always nice to see you pop in for a chat and thanks for the compliment!

John, The sun just started to peek through the trees so I was lucky to catch this misty shot. There are sure some beautiful area in Canada, I haven't been back there in quite some time. Thanks for the visit!

Posted by Cynthia Bartch over 10 years ago

It does look dreamy Lora, I was just hoping it wouldn't turn out fuzzy :) Ted is very good one for putting up my Kodak moments! Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for taking us along to visit your Mum, I haven't been to France so I enjoyed your photos immensely. I'm hoping the best for her and I bet she was thrilled to you.

I was all wide awake and ready to Play in the Rain, and now I'm feeling sleepy again. Misty days do that to me, even virtual misty days. LOL

Posted by Not a real person over 10 years ago

That's very pretty.  I saw you note about running back to get it.  You're lucky there was still a shot to take, sunrise and sunset seem to move so fast! 

Posted by Doreen McPherson, Phoenix Arizona Real Estate ~ (Homesmart ~ Scottsdale ~ Tempe) over 10 years ago

Salut Sheldon, I'm sure your visit was comforting for her. I did enjoy learning along on your trip. There are few people I know living in France as well. As always, it's nice to see you visit my blog!

LOL@Russel, These kind of setting do this to me too, kinda dreamy like! Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Doreen, The sun was about midway through the trees and I was running back as fast as I could! You are right, I thought I was going to miss the shot because the scene changes with a blink of an eye. Thanks for the visit.

Posted by Cynthia Bartch over 10 years ago

It's a peaceful tranquil moment in time. I can see myself thinking and mentally planning with the quire serenity of the location.

Hi Emelyn, But you have those majestic mountains in your area!

Hi there Kathy, I was surprised this shot came out that way because it does resemble a watercolor, very perceptive.

Posted by Cynthia Bartch over 10 years ago

Hey Russell, There always new stuff going on here but I'm not a consistent blogger :( Thanks for checking in!

Hi Gerry, It was so beautiful in person too, I seem to have good luck getting subject matter in the early moring hours. You are right, it does look like it could belong a fairytale book. Au revoir mon ami!

Posted by Cynthia Bartch over 10 years ago

Hi Charles, Thanks for the kind words on the photo I appreciate it greatly. The butterfly was from this blog if you care to read. I think he liked me, I kinda attract critters!

Hi Carole, Well it was early dawn on Lake Hartwell in SC. It was a great opportunity for me to be a shutterbug that morning! Thanks so much for the visit :)

Cynthia, okay, so I'm a little late commenting on this post...I was going to ask where this is and Ann beat me to it.  It really is beautiful, I can only imagine the up close and personal experience was.

Hey there Nick no worries mate about the late comment, I comment on quite a few old posts myself and always enjoy feedback. As you can see I really don't post very often, I'm more of commentor! A fellow AR buddy commented on my first posts not too long ago. How cool was that?

You are right it was even more breathtaking in person, for myself something about the early mornings puts it all in perspective for the day.
