Evening Mist Rising in a Stream

Back to a bit of yellow 🙂

I had to get myself in a rather precarious position on the bank of the stream ( which is really a fen drain but that’s not such a romantic name !! ) in order to get this photograph before the light failed completely. 



Another version with a more eerie feel to it….

      • Yes…Are your photoshop skills up to getting rid of the vehicles yet? I think it would be a bit more ‘timeless’ without their distraction…But you know me, never happy unless I’m exercising my GOD complex.

      • Just realised I hadn’t answered this Stuart.. Yes could easily take the vehicles out but I like them… I like that they show how dark it is…but I do get your point!

      • The vehicles certainly give it a greater sense of context/time/conditions etc. but I think I’d have to have a crack at ‘vanishing’ them…just to judge the results alongside each other.

    • Thank you PG and welcome to my blog. I was pleased I managed to capture it ( although the photos aren’t the best quality ) because the light was almost gone.

  1. What would it look like if you took the eerie one and cropped out the oncoming headlights on the road? I can actually get that effect by scrolling down. I like it!

    • I did try with the lights taken out but decided against it because generally I think they help to give the photo a better perspective… and show how dark it was 🙂 ( excuses the poor quality of the photos…don’t look too close! )

  2. I think the lower version has it – as you say, its more eerie, more Sleepy Hollowish! We have drains on the Somerset Levels too – not a great name as you say, but if that’s what they’re called then that’s what they’re called! Adrian
