It's a beautiful mid-Autumn shot. The mist adds atmosphere (no pun intended).
Part of what is fascinating here is the realization that, a very few weeks later, with the leaves down, on a similarly misty morning, with them sun behind the trees, the whole scene would be lit with silver. One of those that I experienced will live with me all of my life.

And this picture captures the mood perfectly!
