Obsessing about the weather

I don’t know if it’s proof I’m getting old, or just that deep down I’m really British, but lately I have been thinking, commenting — andย  posting — about the weather. True, we have had an unexpectedly large number of storms and way more rain than usual, but still!

Anyway, I’m doing it again. I woke this morning to the heaviest fog I’ve seen in ages, so as soon as the boy-child was out the door for school, I headed off with my camera. It was really cold and damp in Greenhithe today, but I’m quite pleased with the photos I shot.

  1. Extremes always excite, somehow, and this morning’s pea soupier has given you an unbearably romantic backdrop – it’s as though you’ve captured all our memories and imaginings of winter mornings โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™‚
