A Sunday morning stroll that began with a misty dawn and gradually transformed into a bright and clear day.
The village street at daybreak.
Early sun dissolving the mist.
An unusual view of the cottage on the corner.
Gnarly roots and leaves.
A rough fence.
The first rays of the sun.
The poplar row.
Footbridge over the River Mel.
Small ghost threatens to throw half a brick
at passing photographer!
Stunning photos. Thank you. (My favourite is the footbridge.)ReplyDelete
I love all of these photos. Each one captures a moment of winter that is so beautiful. And... you made me laugh with that very threatening ghost about to throw a half rock at a photographer. I'm going to be very careful in the future. LOL!ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos- love the fence, and the ghost of course!ReplyDelete
Ah, the morning mist and a walk about...loved seeing all these photos and especially your icy ghost threatening the brave photographer in spite of the brick threat!ReplyDelete
These are wonderful and evocative.ReplyDelete
I love foggy, frosty mornings. Great pics!ReplyDelete
Nice one! The best time of the dayReplyDelete
Passing photographer surely had it coming to him!ReplyDelete
What beautiful pictures. Really, you do have a knack for finding beauty virtually in any setting.
Splendid frost photos. Thanks.ReplyDelete
I am always happy when I see you have posted. The frost must have been quite something! As usual, I cannot really pick a favorite here. But that last shot made .e laugh out loud! Hope you have a good week, John.ReplyDelete
Your photos catch the moment beautifully. I love the cottage framed by two trees.ReplyDelete
Hi John - I gather you're in freezing fog up there ... it looks cold - while your photos make me think of John Clare's day ... especially the cottage one - without the car and its lights! Cheers - hope it warms up for you - oand/r you have plenty of hot chocolate to hand ... HilaryReplyDelete
Debes ir muy abrigado, porque el frío se plasma en tus bellas imágenes. Me gusta la niebla que has captado en tus fotografías y la belleza del lugar.ReplyDelete
Incredible mist and beautiful winter sceneriesReplyDelete
What nature can add to our scenery…the fog, the frost! Wonderful photos, John!ReplyDelete
Outstanding photos and captions, John. You really are amazing! You capture the most interesting details. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Love your small ghost - don't be scared of him - half an hour of sunshine will soon finish him off. I have just recommended a friend who doesn't blog but is a real nature l over to have a look at your work via my side bar.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place you live in.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the lovely photos.ReplyDelete
Your lovely images capture the current weather perfectly - particularly like the frosted poplar trees complimented by the hoar frost foreground.ReplyDelete
Wow, what a wonderful variety of beautiful photos. Early morning, sun rising, misty and frosty, you got them all, John. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
These winter conditions make for amazing photos. Love the footbridge one.ReplyDelete
The last one is marvelous. You nailed it on what it showed.ReplyDelete
John, thank you for another most enjoyable walk.ReplyDelete
I see that although I am Weaver I have come out as anonymous above when I tell you your ghost will soon disappear - my friends did visit and loved your photos. While I am on may I say too that that is a super line of poplars - it is years since I saw one - not many up here in Yorkshire. WeaverReplyDelete
Amazing photography John.ReplyDelete
While your walks are always enjoyable, John, for the images presented, this one was notable for both the photos and the accompanying text. The frost on the red berries and in the fields was beautiful. My favorites here were gnarly roots and leaves and hieroglyphics.ReplyDelete
Frost-crisped leaves always catch my eye when walking. It is the bare bones of trees and twigs, fence posts and the like which must be appreciated this time of year.ReplyDelete
Exquisite beauty captured in every image! Thank you!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful morning!ReplyDelete
