Misty Mornings

Misty Mornings // 15 01 2022

In the dark winter months I struggle to wake up, as I’m sure many other do. When it’s spring/summer/autumn I tend to wake up naturally around 7:30-8, but in winter I’m pushing for a 9am wake up. I’m going to assume that it’s to do with the lack of light – sunrise this morning was at 8:15am.

After two failed wind turbine photoshoots I decided that I wanted to get up and go shoot this morning. The weather forecast looked OK for the morning. It changed from clear, to misty, to cloudy in the days before, and as I went to bed last night it said it was going to be cloudy.

Knowing that the forecast isn’t always right (whilst praying for mist or intermittent clouds) I decided to set my alarm and get out there.
I was rewarded hen I woke up with a nice misty view out of the window. I hastily got dressed (red dress tucked into gym leggings, with wellies on the bottom is a killer combo) and headed out.

It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten up and gone for a sunrise photo – Covid put a stop to most holidays! What I wasn’t anticipating was how many dog walkers there would be. Silly of me really, and I got a few funny looks prancing around in a bright red dress bare foot whilst there was frost on the floor.

None the less it was a morning well spent I think!

Grass : )

Monsal Dale (and Trail)

Headstone Viaduct, Monsal Trail Today we decided to go for a walk in the Peak District. Monsal Trail is somewhere I have been before, but I’ve never seen the viaduct from the hilltop, only walked over it. View into the Valley

We set off early (because in the UK the clocks went back last night, meaning that when we got up at 8 our bodies thought it was 9) and when we got there there was plenty of parking.

View into the Valley We were following a route from the Walking Englishman, but skipped bits of it because we didn’t have a lot of change for parking! haha View into the Valley

It was miserable all day. I did wonder if the mist would burn off and the clouds might get more interesting, but no. It stayed grey and misty all day.

The great bleak nothingness

We went up the side of a mountain to see the sunset. Only when we got here it was really really really misty. I must have been the only person on the tour who was excited about this. I requested the brown blanket (the others were sunset coloured or had stars on them) and went off to one side to shoot this.
Shame we didn’t see the sunset, because you can’t actually see it from where we are staying anyway (it sets over the mainland, and it’s very hilly) but one must make the most of a bad situation!
