Now I just want to get up early on every mild day from now till May. These are very inspiring shots. I especially like the tree lined water and path as well as the moose.

I have to say that all the photos are beautiful, but the photo by Dee is exceptional. If it can be said that a tree has a personality, then Dee certainly captured that personality. And that’s not an easy thing to do. Great picture Dee.

Some pretty cool shots over there!

I’ve created a series a while ago where fog played a big role. You can check them out over here

Fog is great to create athmosphere, but its hard to be at the right place at the right time to take photos as shown here. Thank you for collecting them 😉
