October morning at Dodgeville State Park in southwestern Wisconsin. We got here early to enjoy the morning sunlight and fog lifting from the dew-drenched fields. I am chronicling the times at which the pictures were taken.
8:23 a.m. – wisps of fog rise above the prairie
8:29 a.m. – We hiked a path that was supposed to lead to a waterfall. The weather was too dry for the waterfall, but I was able to take some beautiful pictures of the morning sunlight casting a golden glow on the autumn landscape.
8:44 a.m. Sun rays through the fog
8:54 a.m. – This park has two lakes. This picture was taken from the sandy beach as the morning mist rose.
