A foggy day

I went out this morning for my monthly reeds photo session.  I loved walking through the fog and gloom and I’ve just worked out why.  I think it is because it captures some of the magic of the early morning dawn without having to get up specially early!   The darkness and murk seemed to have fooled the birds into thinking that it was still safe for them to linger, and I heard a lot of birdsong that I don’t normally notice.

I couldn’t see very far in front of me.  It was magical.

The reeds were dripping.

There was still quite a lot of colour, however…

Especially contrasted with the surroundings.

Still that downwards diagonal movement…

I think I’ll be sad when this monthly photoshoot is over at the end of the year.  I’ll have to find another theme for 2011!

    Your photos are wonderful, LIz. Very evocative, with a sense of mystery. Better to be walking in this fog than driving in it, right?
