Freezing fog filled the valley as the sun rose from behind surrounding hills. A grab shot as I passed in the car I could not resist.

2 stop ND grad and Tobacco grad, (light use to add to the warmth at top of image)

This has a good warm feel to it, yet it was so cold. A nice juxtaposition of moods here.

We'll forgive the tobacco grad, just this once. But don't let it become a habit! Grin

Lovely shades and a nice calm mood, here. Great stuff.
