This is a great time of year for foggy mornings with (fairly) calm winds. Those mornings offer some pretty fantastic opportunities for photographers, especially as the sun just begins to break through the fog. I do, however, recommend good rain pants and waterproof boots, though even that often doesn’t keep my pants and socks from becoming completely saturated. Ah, the suffering I go through for my art…
A couple weeks ago, I shared some photos from a foggy morning up at the Niobrara Valley Preserve. Last weekend, I spent a really nice morning at our family prairie. Here are some of the images from that trip.
Special Note:This Sunday, August 11, I’ll be appearing on “Digging Deeper”, a Facebook Live broadcast by “Backyard Farmer”, with Nebraska Educational Television. Tune in to Facebook Live at 6:30pm if you want to watch the program, or you’ll be able to find it on YouTube, starting Monday. Jim Locklear, of Lauritzen Gardens, and I talk about prairie conservation and the use of native prairie plants.It was a lot of fun – I hope you enjoy it.
Mmm, that lettuce leaf macro and those grasses! Worth the wet socks, IMO!
I just watched the Digging Deeper with Backayrd Farmer. I love the show and I’ve enjoyed their Sunday night extra segments! Always good topics. It was great to see you on there! BYF is the only show I watch that I just can’t miss!
Wonderful photos. I’d be happy to trade our sweltering temperatures and humidity for your dew. The last time I was out and about, I ended up looking like I’d been standing in a shower for a good while. No matter — it’s still worth it, especially when you bring home photos like this.
