Rockford Common Misty Morning
Tuesday, October 8th, 2013
After a wonderful summer, autumn has come in with fantastic colours, misty mornings and (some) lovely sunny days. This morning was a perfect example.
Please forgive a vague dark fuzz near the top of one or two photos. My camera developed a fault that dropped a piece of something in the lens, the effect was worse depending on the zoom level.
As we get going, the sun makes a valiant effort to break through a low lying mist.
Spiders webs dress the gorse bushes, backlit by the struggling sun.
Looking back the way we’ve come – much brighter now.
Ahead of us, the sun is lighting up the remaining green in the birch trees to beautiful effect.
We reach the edge of Rockford Common and get this lovely, but still misty, view looking over Digden Bottom to Ibsley Common.
A bit to the left, Whitefield Plantation on Ibsley Common seen over the brightest orange bracken I’ve ever seen. The sun is getting stronger all the time warming up the world and the colours. I promise that I did no post processing to this image at all, except to resize it 😉
This New Forest Pony looked up from grazing beneath a birch tree. What a difference to when we set out!
I'd love to hear from you...
