Mistley - short walk with Gill Moon

When Gill offered this morning walk with coffee and cake at the end, who could resist? As it was, the morning was misty and atmospheric over the river, and then onto a walk through the woods. So, a few images I managed of the morning. Being by the river side, the morning mist was still lingering over the water, while everywhere was tranquil and quiet. Looking up river, the clouds appeared black and threatening, making the autumnal colours somewhat muted. Having walked along the waterfront past Mistley Towers, we entered Mistley woods. This was called `old knobble` and was certainly gnarled and broken. Also, very old I would say. Another old tree in the woods which was very deformed. Some autumnal colours beside the road on our way back to our start. Being Remembrance Sunday, a short service was being held beside the memorial. Back at the start we were treated to hot coffee and cake - lovely! Thanks Gill and Simon. Home

This was a Misty Autumn

Autumn can be a beautiful month but also damp and misty. Summer trying to hold on it seems! This year there were quite a few misty mornings and a chance for some atmospheric shots, with a few shots of other Autumn regulars such as fungi and spiders webs. Firstly, some images on the River Brett, near to where I live. Navigating a barbed wire gate (carefully) I was rewarded with these beautiful views. On the other side of the river, the sheep wondered what I was doing.  Pylons across the valley took time to emerge from the mist. Even the runners in the Hadleigh Road Race were soon swallowed into the mist. Lonesome - after the mist cleared. The lanes that I walk on a regular basis, are really lovely this time of year. Cobweb made more visible by the mist residue on it. Rosy Earthstar (Geastrum rufescens) is a species of fungus in the family Geastraceae. It was first described scientifically by Christian Hend
