Goldenrod at various stages in its life
As I drive into work in the morning, I pass a field which frequently has a mist hovering over it. This fall the field has been filled with Goldenrod. Every foggy morning I’d wish that I could be headed into that field instead of headed into the office. A couple of Saturdays ago there was a bit of fog in the morning air and I had no other commitments, so I headed for that field before sunrise. Here are 8 of my favorite photos from that Foggy Saturday Morning. (Click on photos for larger version.)
