A Icy Misty Start….. but another rather grand winters day

The Lake had a thin layer of ice, the mist lingered and clung to the trees in the early morning light…

Winter sun always hangs low in the sky,  with little to no wind, that mist hung around for most of the morning.  It did eventually rise above tree level giving the blue sky a wispy covering.  Frost remained in the shadows and the Highland cattle sought out those areas of grazing catching the sun.  Despite the thaw on the Lake the waters remained dark with an icy look.

Cold, misty and sunny…..  I can live with that as a January day, after all it is winter.

Whatever your weather…….

CMMC Midweek Challenge – WHITE

School-Room - Copy

The Old School Room….

Cees Midweek Challenge nominates white as the colour to feature.  The walls of this old School Room may now be a little ‘off’ white but I think it still fits the bill.

Just a little fun for half way through the second week of the New Year.

If you want to join in, the link to Cees Blog is :- https://ceenphotography.com/2022/01/12/cmmc-january-color-white/

Have fun but as always……..

Thoughtful Thursday……. Some things don’t Change

1965--Morecambe-Bay

Sunset over Morecambe Bay from Cleveleys, Lancashire

Morecambe Bay changes with every turn of the tide.  The above image was taken back in March 1965.

Jean will have changed, and as she will admit to getting older, that will be no surprise.  Prince, the much loved German Shepherd now looks down from his Kennel in the Sky. Despite the passing of time it still brings back some great memories.

Apart from those changes, it is a scene that can be captured on the wide open sands of Morecambe Bay again today…. sunsets not always guaranteed.

The image above is a scan of a 35mm transparency on Ansco Film*

  • If you haven’t heard of Ansco, I suggest you Google it…. a company with an interesting and checkered history.

As everyday…….
