Start of the sparkly season

I regretted not taking my camera out in the fog with me yesterday, there was some spectacular lighting as the fog broke up and the sun shone through. Today, I remembered it, but as I left the street I began to think I was wasting my time. Now, I’m no photographer and there didn’t seem to be any likelihood of any light. However, there was enough to make the droplets of water hanging from the twigs, seedheads, grass stems and thousands of cobwebs sparkle.

This is fairly normal activity for this time of year around here, unfortunately.

You'll be needing to carry those spare metal dustbin lids next time you're out on that walk then.

You can be an artist sponsored by some green movement arts council grant quango type thingy... just a very noisy banging clattering sort of art, that's all.

There might be whistles involved as well?

The geese make such a racket, they wouldn't hear me :-(

Nice pics. Louise.
My pick is the first one of the 2 fence shots. Although foreground is a little oof it's still a nice shot.
Well done.

Louise said...

Thanks Alan, I quite like that one too.

Very good Louise. Sparkly, in fact. Hoping it stays that way for this weekend.

Hmm, not entirely sure what the weather has in store for us. Snow? Maybe. Deluge on Sunday? Difinitely! Just because I wanted an autumnal stroll around Loch Afric. Ho hum.
