The sense of adventure in misty mornings

The sense of adventure in misty mornings // 16 10 14289 // 365

I love autumn (or fall). I’m pretty sure I’ve said this at least 3408320482309 times, but once more can’t hurt, right?
There is nothing better than a bit of heavy mist to start off your morning, especially when the sun burns through it for a glorious sunrise. It’s just a shame that I had to go to work, and wasn’t somewhere more scenic… Having said that unless I was getting up before dawn anyway I would have missed it, so swings and roundabouts I suppose!

Misty autumnal mornings for me are just magical, and we seem to have had lots of them over the last month. I promised myself that I would get up earlier ‘just in case’ but it never happened! Until this morning when I saw it was misty and magically managed to chuck myself around the house and be ready in 5 mins, giving me 10 mins spare to go and take a photo. I suppose it’s quite lucky that there is this patch of grass next to my house. When we were looking for houses it was a bit of a negative (maybe kids would hang around there and be drunk), but it’s turned out to be pretty useful for my photos, and over the years it’s been used as a go to place when I want an open space with trees in the background.

What did make me laugh this morning though was as I was setting up and frolicking* around a man came to walk his dogs on the field. He was stood there kind of looking at me, then I turned to do something with my camera, noticed him looking at me and he walked off – I guess his dogs didn’t need walking that badly after all πŸ˜‰

*I realised last night that for some reason whenever I’m with my camera I kind of run on my tiptoes and half skip. Like a crazy lady.

  1. I’m very fond of your self portraits, Manadh. I have two blogs, one of which is a collaborative project on self portraiture:
    http:\\strataoftheself.wordpress.com
    Would you like to share some of your work there?
    I would credit you and link back to your blog. πŸ™‚

      1. You don’t really have to do anything. πŸ™‚
        Shall I choose some and let you know once they are posted?
        Or would you like to choose some yourself and let me know?
        I’m so pleased you’re happy to join in. πŸ™‚

      2. You can choose them if you want to, but I don’t mind either way. If you could let me know when they’re up that would be great! πŸ™‚
