Sunday 21st October dawned with clinging fog but with a small promise of becoming brighter. Regardless of the weather we had decided as our trip to Germany had been postponed due to circumstances beyond our control we would have a day out.
Witley Court and Gardens are only 45 minutes from our home so are quick and relatively easy to get to, via a number of motorways and a variety of minor roads. I had intended we set off early but as usually it didn’t happen, I suppose I should have learnt by now, but I suppose if we had gone early the fog would have still lingered. As it was we found numerous trees draped in clouds of cobwebs encrusted with diamond-like water droplets just waiting to sparkle when the fog lifted.
I managed to take some really quite good photos, some of which are above taken with my small compact Nikon digital camera as big son was using my Fuji and little son my Panasonic Lumix. Husband was using his new Olympus, which is able to take panoramic and 3D shots without the help of Photoshop to create the magic.
The photo with the spiders shows the fog just starting to lift.
We had a great day out which was enhanced by enjoying a light lunch at the tea room just outside the gardens. It was so nice we didn’t need our Sunday dinner when we got home.
