Misty Sunrise at Lechlade

A couple of weekends ago, I let myself be persuaded to get up at [very] stupid o'clock 
to go in search of misty sunrise pictures.

After much debate, we decided Lechlade might be a good place, 
so we could factor The Thames into any misty landscapes.

I am not someone who has previously enjoyed landscape photography, but since getting my 
wide angle lens after last Christmas, it's growing on me.

We managed a good couple of hours there before the mist turned into thick fog, and we 
couldn't see more than 6 feet in front of ourselves, let alone across the river.

Thanks for talking me into it, Lou and Tracey, and thanks for driving, T. xx

First Visit of the Year to the Nature Reserve

On Saturday afternoon I went with Lou and Tracey over to Letcombe Valley Nature Reserve. None of us had been there yet this year.

Whilst they concentrated on birds, I went for a wander with two cameras: One using my macro lens, the other a zoom.

Despite it still being fairly 'wintry', there was plenty to photograph.
