The world was shrouded in mist this morning and there were few opportunities for decent pictures with the long lens. So I slapped on a short lens and took a few atmospheric shots of the local churchyard. I've processed them in black and white, which seems absolutely the best thing for them. Not my usual sort of picture at all, but occasionally it's good to try something slightly different.

By lunchtime the mist was gone and it had turned into a beautiful sunny day and I was back to my usual photographic subjects.

Just a fleeting glimpse of a fox in the garden tonight (the current visitors are the shyest I can recall), so instead a couple of the garden amphibians out on the prowl. First a newt… then a frog.

Unrelenting sun is forecast for the rest of the week. Bizarre, but very welcome if true. We'll see.

  5. Robin, I should have saved those shots for Halloween! Arrgh… I've no sense of planning at all.

  6. After all it seemed to be a nice day despite that foggy morning. Typical autumun, I would say 😀
