Mid Summer Morning

The full brunt of the mid-summer heat bakes the countryside but in the cool of the morning landscapes can be beautifully lit before the ground fog has completely burned away.

Taking a short drive around our local area just after dawn the sun rays falling across a lush field of corn begged for someone to photograph its transient beauty.  Shooting the scene bracketed +- 2 stops gave me the raw material to combine the images in Photoshop HDR pro producing this the final result.

Health update:  The antibiotic regimen prescribed by my doctor seems to be working with all apparent symptoms of the Lyme disease now gone.  With my strength and endurance back to near normal levels my only concern is that the treatment will completely eradicate Lyme from my system.  I am hopeful that I will not develop any of the chronic problems associated with the disease in the future but only time will tell.

You have indeed captured the beauty of the the best time of the day. ie: "daybreak"
More importantly, I sincerely hope you and your Dr. have your "bug" under control and you experience no further problems.
