On a recent fall morning, my husband and I took an early morning drive out to August A Busch Memorial Conservation area. We are fortunate to live only a few miles from this great recreation area. This area is a great place for hiking, biking, fishing and hunting. It has 32 lakes and miles of trails. It is also a great place for a photographer. On this particular morning we arrived just after sunrise and I was delighted to see a heavy misty fog floating just above the water. The wind was calm so the waters were still and it was great for reflections of the fall colors.
In the photo above I used the lone tree for a focal point with just the tips of the trees basked in the early morning sun.
At the second lake we stopped at there was an aluminum boat tied on the shore but the early morning sun was giving it a golden glow. I crouched down low on the shoreline so I could capture the colorful brush in the foreground and the boat and reflection behind it.
The next lake had a marshy area with lots of grasses. I again got down low and photographed this area with the misty lake behind it.
