Yesterday we had mist and ice but also some sunshine trying hard to lighten the mood.
Today that mist has turned to fog….fog that reaches upwards to join the clouds and blot out any chance of sun to brighten the day.
Ghostly silhouettes of trees stand motionless in the still and damp air…
No one is prepared to linger on the bench today.
All in all it is a rather miserable day, a day when it appears you are the only ones around. The fog cast not only a visual blanket over everything but also suffocates all sound, not even the call of a bird…. trees can stand in ghostly silence.
The one bright spot is by the Lake where the scene is enriched by the newly fallen leaves….but it is the only bright spot today.
The lonely trail through the woods.
