Saturday morning bike ride.
A misty start. Lots of dew-dropped cobwebs and ripening berries.
As I and the sun climb higher the mist starts to clear. I am rewarded with beautiful clear views at the reservoir, though even as I sit to admire them the mist drifts back over, changing the view in minutes.
I left at 7:30am and get home at 11:30 (the ride includes lots of photo-faffing time, not all 4 hours are spent actually cycling!) to find freshly baked muffins waiting.
A lovely start to the day.
Days like these put me in mind of the first line of "To Autumn" by Keats - "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,". Linda @ Occasional Scotland introduced me to few more lines which I now can't get out my head as I am hearing (but not seeing) robins whenever I am out and about: " and now with treble soft The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft; And gathering swallows twitter in the skies." I saw swallows still here on Wednesday!

What fabulous photos!
Well done. You've managed to really capture the "magic in the mist."
Heard someone at the local shops say on the same day " I was going to go out and take some landscape photography shots but there's nothing worthwhile to photograph when the weather is like this".
Says it all really.
Keats fits your photos perfectly. The ram in the fog was great.
Absolutely gorgeous photos today, you've outdone yourself. And how lovely to come home to freshly baked muffins. Wonderful. CJ xx
Beautiful photos - and coming home to fresh muffins - perfect!
I love that poem and shared it last week because it is such a favourite of mine. Your photos illustrate it perfectly and the coming of autumn! What a wonderful bike ride! xx
Wow, you got some real prize-winning photos on this day! I loved the big horned sheep and the spider web crystal beads.. and who made the muffins for you? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Those photographs are beautiful, especially the misty ones and the spiders' webs.
Stunning photos my friend. So glad you take time to get off your bike and take them for all of us.
