Misty Morning, Allestree
Hard to conceive that we are now into December (just where did this year go to?) We do have a misty start to this month, but the sun is doing its very best to break through and of course we still do have many trees laden with that magical autumnal gold.
By the time I reached the Pines the sun had found a chink in that grey mist offering promise for the rest of the day..
Frosts of recent days have brought many more leaves carpets the woodland floor, which together with the now dry dead bracken, they caught what ever sun was going and created a cosy glow….. even though the day is cold.
The mist still lingered long into the day…despite the suns best efforts, infact the mist remained until nightfall.
But for December that is not a bad start to the month.
