Nature Notes - Morning Light

Visit Michelle at the intelligent Nature Notes Thursday to learn something new.

Something I really love about autumn is the angle and softness of the light in the morning. I took the first shot and then about 10 minutes later, I took the second shot this morning. Went out on the deck in my robe for all of you.
In the photo above, the trees at the very top of the photo look as though they have turned golden, but that is the sunlight coming up over the houses. In reality, those trees are all still green.

With my limited photography skills and little point and shoot camera, these photos simply don't do it justice. It is one of my favorite things in nature, this morning light. It's also one of my favorite things about Christmas and Easter mornings.

All's Blue
Robert Browning
I find earth not gray but rosy,
Heaven not grim but fair of hue.
Do I stoop? I pluck a posy.
Do I stand and stare? All's blue.

I agree with you about the Autumn light. It's odd but where I live we get that glow on the trees in the afternoon. I don't think of it so much in the morning but the afternoon light is my favorite part of Autumn and it looks like what you photographed in the morning.

These are beautiful photos Caron and you caught the light beautifully...I love how the light changes with the light...until everything turns white. Oh geesh that

I'm with you. Morning and evening light is wonderful, and in spring and fall it's absolutely magical. Nice photos!

Yes, autumn light really is different from that in summer, which is often harsh on the eyes. And early morning and early evening light this time of year is especially delightful!

I do love this time of year and always enjoy looking out my window at the light on the trees out back. It is almost ethereal. Lovely photos!

I love morning and evening has that glow quality about it.
