Why I’m late for work…

Standard

I loved how the sun’s reflection gave some of these photos a sepia tone look!

The wonderful lighting of these autumn mornings is irresistible to me – every day I see something that inspires me on my way to work. Usually I sigh and just keep driving but this morning I stopped when I saw the mist over Lake Springfield and took a few shots.


I was a few minutes late for work, but it was worth it!

Missouri Mule

Standard

Every day on my way to work I pass a farm where there are about 8 or 10 mules in the field. This little guy is always standing apart from the rest of the herd and is usually close to the fence. The other day I couldn’t resist the urge to stop and take his picture – isn’t he a cutie?

Country Morning

Standard

Once again, I found myself mesmerized by some farmer’s fields as I drove by – this time it appears to be hay that’s been cut but not yet baled. I loved the striped patterns throughout the fields and that prompted me to get out with my trusty little camera and explore a little.

While you’re looking at these photos, imagine the warm sun, the smell of the new mown hay, the soft breeze that kept the wildflowers swaying and the twittering of the birds as they flew across the fields – all the simple things that make a country morning so special!
