Misty eyes

I was out and about this morning with my camera, and Teddy my little furry friend. It started off sunny but then the mist came down, for a few minutes the cars had their headlights on as visibility was down to a few yards. Almost as quickly it came, the mist lifted, I needed to be quick to get some decent pictures. I have whittled 68 shots down to fourteen. You can click on them to make them bigger.

The rising sun brought these berries up lovely against the cottage wall.

The mist is starting to come down.

I have photographed this cottage before, but this time I got close up to the gate.

Five minutes later.......

The sun is starting to break through, again

By the time I reached the playing field it was brilliant sunshine.

Down to the allotments, I found this garden table.

That's one way to grow your beans without sticking canes into the ground. Use a greenhouse frame but don't put any glass in.

I haven't the foggiest idea what this plant is or was, but the dried seed head looks amazing against the blue sky.

I spy through the hedge, two lads marking out the football pitch before the mornings game.

Then back home for breakfast.


  1. You are getting quite amazing shots with your camera. Must be a very good one. Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lovely photo's :0)
    I think the dried flower heads are jerusalum artichokes, or just plain old artichokes

  3. Beautiful photos, I love the misty ones!

  4. I think the dried flower is a cardoon, great photos.

  5. Catching the light through the mist... very tricky and so effective.
    That "Five minutes later" is a great example of how if you blink, you miss a decent photo.

    I sometimes regret not having my camera with me when I see something particularly splendid, but on another occasion I'm secretly pleased that I didn't take a photograph and I can just keep the picture as a memory.

  6. Lovely photos, Ilona. The plant is a globe artichoke. What a waste to not have cut it earlier in the season! I love them.

  7. Very nice, nothing like a bit of mist!

  8. What lovely photos. Thank you for sharing them.
