I stopped and took quite a few pictures on that bike ride. This one is black and white because I accidentally swivelled a knob. But I liked it anyway; it quite catches the feel of the morning, which was both foggy and frosty.
The light of a winter sun is one of my favourite things. So have some beauty to share.
Took quite a few pictures on today’s dogwalk; had fun with ferns.
It’s been foggy for a few days, leaving everything very… damp. Yesterday while hiking I found a tree festooned in spiderwebs and dew.
The moss meadows have quite a few varieties of mosses—this type seems to be especially good at picking up dew on a foggy day.
It’s been really humid these last few days—today worse then yesterday, when I took this picture. The dew was heavy, still there at 10 in the morning.
Since I was on the topic of dew…
I found this at the beach, too.
I found another luncheon stump the other day, where Something had made a meal of Something Feathered. This time I took closeups of the feathers—it was a dewy, dewy day, and the wee droplets sparkled. This one doesn’t even really look like a feather, but some exotic creature with an extremely complex exoskeleton and a lot of antennae. Or legs. With arthropods it can be hard to tell.
Both of these pictures of dew on a leaf are taken with the dew seen through the leaf—it’s the effect of the light that defines the shapes of the water droplets on the back of the leaves. I was quite taken with the fuzzy otherworldliness of these. I think I like the first one best, but the second one reminds me of sand shaped by waves.
