UPDATE: Made it on to Explore #5 on 8th September 2012 - Thanks to all who viewed, commented and faved. It means a lot. :-)
I have been looking forward to the first mists of Autumn for some time now as we have had such a poor summer. There was a buzz in the air from a few tog friends last night on various social networks sites and sure enough, I awoke to mist. I leapt out of bed like a child on Christmas morning and packed the gear in the car. I had a location and shot in mind at my local woods. Unfortunately the woods are at the top of a hill and as I arrived I drove out of the mist into brilliant sunshine. I cursed and quickly did a U-turn. I drive past this copse every day on my way to work and have been meaning to shoot it for some time; just waiting for the right conditions. I thought I would give it a go today; and was I glad that I did. This field is due to be harvested any day now, so I had to try and get something before it is gone. It really was quite magical to be out shooting early in the mist; fingers crossed for more fantastic photographic conditions as the season unfolds.
