Chasing the sun.....

With all the rain we had recently everything it's very moist outside.  The mornings are foggy and this morning I decided to follow the sun as it rose over the backyard.
I was up early and talked myself into dashing outside to grab pictures as the sun was rising through the trees...the early morning fog was still present and made for some good shots...
This is our wind chime stand we created this summer.
We re-used some old posts we saved and painted them black so they would blend with the wind chimes.
Spiders never rest...I think I came in with a cob web or two that caught my hair as I wandered around!
The sun casts a nice glow on the leaves...
The lacy leaves of the Japanese Maple highlighted by the sun...
Early morning sun the Hostas don't mind....
The sun shifts away as the angle changes...
But a few rays are left...
Sometime later the sun shown over here....
It changes quickly! The fog has burned off....
I went back inside and realized the sun was dancing inside my home too! I only had moments to get this shot...it was gone in 30 seconds!
Back out to catch the few rays still beaming through...
Ahh....it smells so good outside...I wish it was like this year round!
