The morning had broken cloudless. A cool fog lingered over the pond, waiting patiently for the rising sun to relieve it of duty. The soft glow to the east foretold a perfect day. The delicacy and expectancy of this early morning scene suggested a painters touch. It was almost surreal.

The brightening sky in the east lit the delicate fingers of fog, giving a subtle, three-dimensional quality to the scene, most apparent when the photo is viewed in dim light.

Astronomical sunrise occurred at 5:45 am this day. As usual, the sun’s appearance was delayed some twenty minutes by the high ridge on the eastern shore. The date was April 27, 2013, at 5:53 am. The view is toward the east-southeast. Click the image to view it full screen, and the back arrow to return. Cursor over for its description. Enjoy!
