Do click photos to enlarge, it is worth it.
Yesterday I got up pre-dawn and drove to get
some fog shots for you. I hurried to this spot to
catch the sunrise over the valley fog. I like the
way the first rays of the sun are tinging the edge
of the rising fog.
Then the sun rose like God coming to earth
and woke the world with blinding force
on the way home, a couple of kangaroos on our
foggy wood lot, then home to breakfast.

Absolutely beautiful Arija - somehow the fog makes such a mysterious landscape. You have captured that in the photographs.ReplyDelete
Wow it is so beautiful. Looked so magical. Could hang up as a painting in the living room. Amazing.ReplyDelete
Beautiful sunrise foggy series. Complete with running Kangaroo - Australia trademark!ReplyDelete
These photos do have the feel of early morning - maybe even the First early morning in Eden! (and thank you so much for taking the time to send the extra notes on cycads; just fascinating, and much appreciated!)ReplyDelete
Magical is the word! How absolutely gorgeous! They're all like paintings.ReplyDelete
Oh Arija, that is soooo beautiful! I can't even tell you which part of your skywatch I prefer the most: the landscape, the fog or the kangaroos! All of it beautiful!ReplyDelete
oh my goodness, how amazing, specially that sun.ReplyDelete
It's just beautiful. The foggy landscapes always moves me. To get up early i the morning to get this reward must really make the day.ReplyDelete
Unbelievably stunning photos. Thanks for getting out so early so that we might enjoy.ReplyDelete
The light is almost magical. With the fog it creates a pleasant mood.
Gogreous photos.Yes it does look like Heaven opened up for you.ReplyDelete
Arija, thank you for rising early to get these photos! There is nothing like a lifting fog to add drama to sunrise. The sun does look Heaven sent as it's rising - it seems to set the tree aflame!ReplyDelete
Love the morning fog,... thank you for getting up so early. And the kangaroos are such a treat,.. to have them just running along on your property!ReplyDelete
It does hold such a beautiful meaning in these photos... I feel so wonderful when viewing your pictures... I cannot help but smile and feel the warmth.ReplyDelete
OMGOSH!!! These are spectacular!!!!!ReplyDelete
Such amazing light - Great Great shots!!! I love that sky!ReplyDelete
Exotic and bewitching, thanks for sharing these remarkable photos. Makes me want to hop on a plane!ReplyDelete
Those are really magical pictures, I know it's been said already, but it's true.ReplyDelete
Early morning light is so beautiful, especially when diffused by foggy mist. Beautiful photos, Arija. Love the kangaroos, too.ReplyDelete
I Love your photos!!! It look so heavenly^^ReplyDelete
Stunning!!!! Fog and sunrise, what an incredible combination and it all came together in your gorgeous photos. All shots are truly spectacular. They should be in a book, in a frame on a wall. Thank you Arija, I feel so good after seeing these.ReplyDelete
Great photos I like the effect of the foggy sunrise, and the kangeroos in the morning. Hope you get some good rains soon thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Iespecially like the first with the fog nestled in between the hills!ReplyDelete
You were really blessed by the most beautiful things world can offer.ReplyDelete
Great! I like foggy photos, but it is not easy to do.ReplyDelete
Stunning shots of a foggy sunrise. I love the colours. You have a great blog. I find it hard to remember names of plants. How do you do it? I also have problems remembering how to spell as you pointed out in your comment on THE GRAMPIANS. I realise I should have checked how to spell it before publishing, but I was pretty tired at the time. My children and I all have the same problem, a certain part of our brain isn't functioning properly. However we all managed to get a uni degree. It is wrong to judge people by their spelling. A more sensitive approach would have been kinder.I'm really a nice person and the way you said it offended me but also will make me be more careful in future.ReplyDelete
What an explosion of light. Absolutely stunning and magical photos! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful pre-dawn moments with us.ReplyDelete
Wow, just W.O.W.ReplyDelete
Fabulous photos, I am not fond of fog but they can produce some wonderful photos.ReplyDelete
Excellent photos! I love the 'roos!ReplyDelete
Your images are so wonderful! The light is enchanting and then kangaroos are always so wonderful to see, especially for those of us without them!ReplyDelete
Oh, thank you so much for doing that for us!!! What magnificent captures, and yes, the sun did rise, like God coming to Earth. From what I understand, though hard to imagine, it will yet even more glorious than that! I can't wait!ReplyDelete
Amazing! I love to see nature in her abundant glory.ReplyDelete
your photography is truly special,
like reflections of your soul.
I enjoy so much coming here and letting myself get lost in your world.
Thank you for so generously sharing it with us.
