Late summer mist

Today was a beautiful day: the air was still, hot, and hazy under an almost cloudless sky.

Low sea mist sheathed familiar landmarks in pale grey shrouds, giving much-loved vistas an alien yet still beautiful disguise.

Flat as a sheltered lake, the sea mirrored the pale grey-blue above, enhancing the feeling that the vivid, lush colours of the countryside and shore had been transformed into a pastel-hued Impressionist painting.

Driving to and from work through this ethereal wonderland, I wanted more than ever to stop the car and spend the day walking with my camera.
