Last week I was in Chapleau for the Fall Fair. The first few days back in Chapleau were pretty great weather wise. I was able to get some photography of the beautiful fall leaves - then the first frost came. I drove my mom to work that morning and noticed that there was an incredible mist looming over the town mixed with a fresh frost of a cold autumn morning. I had to head back, grab my camera and capture these amazing scenes!

The first scene I noticed with the mist was the cemetery at Peace Park while on route to my mom's work. The mist was so heavy in the air and the sun was just shining through it in the perfect way - it was even hitting the morning dew on a spider web at the perfect angle.

As the first frost of the year hit, it hit the plants in the park pretty hard. It was very cool to see each leaf and petal be enveloped in the frozen crystals.

It was early enough in the morning and I was the only one out in the park. It was completely quiet apart from the odd flapping noise of the ravens passing by. It was eerily beautiful and very rewarding to be able to take in those few moments by myself and really look around. The silence was broken by some crumbling noises coming from my right and I thought that I was a squirrel or bird; but upon investigation, it was the leaves falling to the ground one by one. There was something so poetic about that.

As I was about to head back over the bridge to go home, I noticed that the mist was also pretty thick on the waterfront, so I went to check it out. Turns out, it was just as great as the Peace Park!

I always love being able to catch a misty morning. I'm not usually very lucky with that sort of thing, but it was an absolutely perfect morning for capturing mist over the water.

Thank you for reading! 

I hope you enjoyed this misty morning adventure.
