This was the view this morning; as the sun rose the mist rose with it. In mid-August, a few surprising cool nights.
This reminds me of two little sketches I’ve done through the years of similar misty summer mornings, below, when the trees were younger. In the photo above you can see the spruce at right, in the first sketch below it is one of a pair, on the left. In the bottom one, the mulberry in the center and the hemlock on the left are nowhere near as big as they are now. Only the mulberry is in my yard, but I still think I’ll give it a trim.
Textures and subtle colors always catch my eye, as in this composition of bare tree branches and brush in a tangled composition of tans divided by the orderly bluish fence.
