Soft fall sunrise

 

 

 

 

There were patches of fog in the lower lying areas on this crisp fall morning.  As I drove south on Highway 77 in the Upper Peninsula the sun glowed brightly through the fog where it was thinner.  I stopped to take some photos.  I really liked how the warm brightness graduated to the cool blue sky where the fog was even thinner, and the trees were silhouetted as they fade into the distance.

Toward Saint Mary’s Cathedral

After exploring Kilkenny Castle in the morning, we spent the afternoon walking about the town, mainly along High St.  We turned west onto Jame’s St. and found the bright afternoon sun directly ahead of us, casting Joan and Tori into backlit silhouettes as we strolled toward Saint Mary’s Cathedral.  The picture is nice in color as originally shot, but has a more dramatic feel in black and white.
