When I left my house just before sunrise there was a thick fog. We knew it was forecast and me and Sarah had agreed to meet and soak up the atmosphere in the misty woods.
This valley is deep and there are many steep paths up it's edges. As I climbed up through the winter trees, the crisp silhouettes were enough to excite me, but the higher I got the clearer it became.
In just ten minutes I was above the clouds!
It looked like you could just dive in to this beautiful lake and float.
Often the valley bottom is a totally different atmosphere to the top. When you're down there, it's just a foggy day. You don't know that a bright cloudless sky is only a short walk away.
We enjoyed crunching through the fields in the sunshine.
and seeing all the shapes and textures accentuated by frosty outlines.
Then I had to head back down into the misty valley.
The edge of the cloud was round about here.
But I knew that the bright winter sunshine was not very far away.
