Waterfowl in the Morning Mist

Continuing with the photographs I captured during my Saturday morning boating foray, this first scene greeted me as I was approaching the north end of the lake. (Click on the image for better detail) With the air temperature at 23F and calm and the water much warmer at 39F the conditions were ideal for fog formation over the water.

The morning sun warmed the air and the fog was beginning to dissipate when this lone Canada goose flew past between me and the shoreline. The remnants of fog remaining above the lake imparted the light blue color cast to the central part of this image.

Nice. I can feel the hush of the morning air as the fog rises and the fowl do their thing.

I can hear what sounds like a loon and the goose is calling for others to wait a minute.
