Time For Breakfast

One early morning the year before the pandemic I visited Great Smokey National Park. It’s about an 8-hour drive from my home and I like to explore the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounding areas.  This morning I enter the park way before sunrise stopped at a spot I was familiar with and waited.  I knew that every morning around sunrise the horses that have been out in pasture are called back to the barn for breakfast.  This particular morning it was foggy with a deep yellow sky as sunrose started.  Sure enough, like clockwork, the horses showed up.  I took my photos and moved on to the next location.  Shot on a Sony a7r iii with a 100-400mm lens.

A Foggy Start Of A Day In Tuscany

I really love Italy and especially Tuscany.  The Dolomites are another favorite part of Italy I visit often.  This was shot one morning early as the sun was coming up and I caught the fog in the valley.  Made with a Phase One camera and an IQ180 camera, it’s kind of an iconic shot of Tuscany.  I softened it a little bit to add to the feel of the picture.
