Saturday morning the 16th at about 8:00 AM I left JR's in Saginaw and headed out in the light fog toward Oakwood Cemetery to see if I could get any interesting sklyline shots of downtown. The fog was patchy, the light was cold and the skies were roiling at times..

Oakwood is a pretty place with big old oaks, FW history from 1879 and a great outlook spot over the Trinity and the old Frisco bridge to the bluffs..

Nice shots . For those who have never been to Oakwood you should take a visit through and just walk around. A lot of the early settlers of Fort Worth are buried there. You will recognize a lot of names that will match many of the street names in Fort Worth.

Just incredible pictures djold1. Great call on the weather. Could not have been more or less humid. The perfect setting. Keep it up!
