As an antidote to the chaos of a weekend spent painting and restoring furniture, I took some time on Saturday evening and early Sunday morning to walk around the neighbourhood. The recent clear and cold winter weather has produced some stunning sunsets and mist-shrouded mornings.

    • Thank you Sally. As I mentioned to Desley Jane, the mist totally enveloped all the boring stuff around the trees. Otherwise it’s a pretty dull scene. Photographing the same neighbourhood over a period of time has really helped me to see how nature weaves mystery and transformation onto even the most mundane scenes.

    • Thank Julie. Yes; we’re repainting a few rooms and restoring/refreshing furniture in preparation to put the house on the market. No real time-frame; everything has to fit around when my partner is in the country!

    • That would be so funny. It’s a stormwater pond, and is probably about a foot deep. Looking at the shot though, I could almost imagine the Loch Ness monster (or at least it’s tiny, miniaturized relation).
