November mists

In Images, Nature, Photography, Walks by Felicity Martin

John Keats’s “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” has given way to Thomas Hood’s November:

“No sun – no moon!
No morn – no noon –
No dawn – no dusk – no proper time of day…”

Comrie started the month shrouded in fog. We have been living in a world of half-light, with grass and other vegetation dripping with dew and drizzle. It has made for some grey, soaking wet dog walks, but I did take the camera out one drier day when I had hopes of climbing into clearer air.

On Bogton Braes I found myself looking down on one layer of mist, but with another above me. I obviously needed to climb higher! This is just what Mark Nesbitt did to take these lovely sunset photos over the village from Glen Lednock. It looks as if he was on foot on this occasion, but he does also take some superb aerial shots over Strathearn with aid of a microlight.
