Morning in the Woods

Black And White Photography, Laurie, Photography

Depsite the rain and cloudy skies that I encountered while riding through the hills and hollers of Kentucky, I was none the less, struck by the beauty of the area.  Walking into the mist during an early morning hike in Breaks Interstate Park, I was surrounded by the quiet sounds of morning in the woods. The light coming through the trees let me know that the canyon was not too far off, but once I arrived, I had to use my imagination as to what lay before me.  No disappointment though … just peace.

The return to work, and life in general, has so far been a barrier to sharing the tales of my recent travels.  I will get it done, however, and I’ll hope you’ll come on over to Life on the Bike and Other Fab Things to ride those roads with me.

Be sure to check out the blogs of the other Monochromia contributors, too!

  2. The way that light reflects from the rear center of the photo, it gives the background a sublime misty appearance. Its almost like the tree in the center is reaching for some sort of peace that only the sky can offer. Thanks for sharing…

  4. This is an incredible image Laurie, you captured every nuance of the tones and mist. I actually have mist on my eyeglasses from looking at this 🙂 Very well done.

    1. Thank you!! Atmospheric is a great word … I could feel the mist, hear the moisture dropping on leaves and ground, and see the light coming through the trees. I felt surrounded by really good things.
