"Backroads Surprise"

Photo of a beautiful and foggy early morning scene.

Photographer Juanita L. Ruffner obviously has a good eye for beautiful and intriguing scenes, and today's picture of the sun rising over an early morning fog is certainly one of them. Here is the story behind the image:
    "I go out a lot and photograph while I'm "on the road". There are
    a lot of backroads that I enjoy, each of which offers a unique view.
    The kind of day it is will lead you to nice surprises. Mornings are
    my favorite time. On this morning it was foggy and the sun was
    hitting the top of the trees and hills. I adore it when I drive upon
    a spot like this...Sunrays glowing through and atop the trees!"
      --Juanita Ruffner

    I too enjoy driving down country roads, never really knowing what I'll find to photograph. But I always seem to find something beautiful or interesting to shoot, and it appears that you do as well. Great job on this one Juanita!

    It has been said that photographers are “Painters of Light.” If this is true then you have painted a masterpiece here, Juanita. Great capture of a perfect moment.
