Jack Frost Morning
Just before eight this morning I dashed out in an effort to picture the frost lying across the grass over the road. This turned out harder than I thought as the park was freezing! As I wandered down the fingers became ice and i was suddenly struck with a desire to eat hot food and lie in my bed once again.
The sky however was wonderful!
I am unable to reproduce the colours I saw, the camera and my ham-fisted operation saw to that, but I think such mornings are fabulous. Few were about bar those hustling to work and kids yearning for the bus to take them to imprisonment in school for a day, even the dog walkers were missing, just one or two hardy folks, the rest being kept in by grumpy owners. Maybe it was too cold for even the dogs.
On mornings such as this it is easy to see how many aircraft operate over this area. Many headed for nearby Stansted, others crossing over to Luton or on to the north or even those 35,000 feet up where I suspect it is far colder yet they head over the Atlantic to the Americas.
The trails fill the sky mixing with the variety of cloud that soars high above, very interesting patterns they make today. I love such morning, I just wish I had better things to picture alongside of the sky.
This sums up my day, a few pictures, back to bed, and little else to show for it.
Tomorrow there is the museum and even better lots of Fog! Now this is supposed to be with us all day so that might provide a picture, if I can get out...
