Barely an hour difference in the time...
These three shots are a selection from seventy-two I took in the space of an hour on my way into town this morning for a coffee (that's all there is to do in rural France on a Monday as everything is closed... except for the bar and boulangerie). The EXIF says they were taken at 8:48am, 8:56 and 10:00 precisely. I would have taken more but I only had a single 2GB CF card in the camera slot (no spare in my pocket)... and so 72 RAW images was the max!
Those selected here were from views looking roughly south-east - towards the rising sun, which came up and nearly blinded me as I was squinting through a 135mm tele (200mm equivalent on a Nikon D300) for the second image... but it was worth it. EDIT: The 3rd shot was taken looking due south... the sun, to the left, still low creating long shadows on the gently sloping farmland.
Normally I loath the visual intrusion of telephone and electricity posts which line certain lanes around here, but today I 'compressed' them with the 135mm and used the steeple of the 1,013-year old abbey church about a kilometer away in town as a focal point.
These three views, although looking completely different in atmosphere and timing from the lingering mist to absolute clarity, were also taken within a couple of hundred meters of one another... which just goes to show what a difference an hour makes with natural lighting in photography!
