Foggy Halloween sunrise

It was one of those beautiful ethereal mornings today – with the dew hanging off cobwebs and the sun gradually burning through the heavy fog.  Every where I looked there were photos! As usual on my morning walk all of the photos below were taken on my mobile phone.

That was September

Mists and mellow fruitfulness and all that jazz. Summer stayed for the whole of September with record temperatures and lots of blue skies. As I type October has arrived grey and wet and my sandled feet are cold…
