A Misty, Moisty Morning

We have not been overwhelmed with rain. The soil is still dry and dusty.

But we have had cool enough weather that the dew point was higher than the ambient temperature, resulting in a pleasant silvery mist at dawn.

The texture of this old log caught my attention.  I admired the contrasting texture of the water all around the log. I loved the reflection of the log in the water beneath. The ripple between reality and reflection completed it for me 🙂
