Foggy winter morning

A foggy, frozen morning on the back road to La Motte.

Frosty Morning

So far at least our winter has been wet rather than cold, but there has been the odd frosty morning:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Weather – Foggy Morning

Freezing fog gives a ghostly appearance to this view of the little road that runs from our hamlet up towards La Motte.

(To enhance the mood, the original colour image has had a Blue high-contrast filter applied in Lightroom.)

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 22 – Nature

The 52 Week Photo Challenge is back after its brief year-end hiatus and the topic for Week 22 is ‘Nature’. That’s certainly something that leaves plenty of scope, but I decided to go with something that’s typical for the time of year.

This is a detail from one of the oak trees in my fields. We are in the depths of winter, so obviously last year’s leaves are dead, but at the same time you can see the buds that will produce new leaves when spring arrives.

WPC: ‘It’s Not This Time of Year Without…Frost’

We’ve had a couple of frosty days over the past few weeks. So that’ll be November then:

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 16 – Christmas

Yes it does seem a bit too early to be posting Christmas images, but it’s The Girl That Dreams Awake’s challenge, so who am I to argue? (Except with the numbering: this is Week 16, not 15.)

Anyway, here are some photogenic pine cones from the roadside about a mile down the road from here.




52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 14 – Winter

As it happens we woke up this morning to our first significant frost of the year – a sure sign that winter is on its way. It had all thawed before I could get my camera out, but here’s a winter scene that I photographed a couple of years ago during a walk ‘around the block’ (about three miles). The low sun on the barren tree in the foreground made the whole image stand out for me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons

In 2014 I set myself a project to record the passing seasons by every month taking a photograph of the field behind our house, from the same point of view. This week’s Photo Challenge provides an ideal opportunity to show the results.
