A moist dewy morning yields a few photographs

After a few days of autumn rain, the yard was heavy with moisture and air was think with a hazy fog this Saturday morning. I headed out to pick up the paper and decided to take the camera along. Fifteen minutes later I had a few photos (click any photo for larger images).

Since we have been planting trees in our yard this year, I also though I would include a photo record of at least one of the trees planting date. Although most of the species are a variety of native Ohio trees, I wanted to try a more unique tree  … one that is considered “critically endangered” — a Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides). Although I really don’t see many in this area of Ohio, I’m hoping this Redwood will survive and that my kids with be around to see it reach a majestic height.

    I enjoyed your personal blog and I thought the recent set of photos were excellent. I don’t get tired of seeing nature photos with bright color and am amazed when such brilliance is captured on film. Do you mind if I use the single daily as my wallpaper for my computer?

    Thanks and keep up the blogging,
