Looks like Frederic W. Koski was out early in the morning looking for some autumn colors. He found them, but they're muted by the fog that surrounds the shoreline and treetops. Still you can see the deep reds peeking out of that haze, letting you know that yes, it is truly fall behind that fog.

Joyce Tormala found a similar scene at the top of a hill, making it look like she's level with the tree tops. The fog is just enough to lower the visibility, but you can still see the colored leaves along the way down. Both of today's photos illustrate well that the fall colors UP North, can be so vivid and bright that even a foggy, misty (or snowy) day, can't mute them completely.

The fog in the trees is always neat. It seems to separate.

Colummbus Day?? I thought the Vikings were the first Europeans to get to this hemisphere. I don't know of anyone in Michigan(well, maybe government employees)who has the day off, though some of our clients on the east coast do.

Banks and credit unions usually close on the days the Fed is closed. I enjoyed my holiday off watching the snow fall outside of Ontonagon.

City of Lansing employees had the day off today as well as the federal government. State employees did not have the day off.

How serene the mist on the lake picture is. There's nothing like
getting out early enough in the morning to witness this beauty
before the sun burns it off.

ahhh...my stress level just dropped a few degrees :)
