A gloomy walk....

     .... but not because of my mood (for a change), indeed not for it was the mist that wafted in waves across across the slopes of Moel Famau this late afternoon that I speak of. In the thickest parts of it visibility was down to just a few yards and then within a few minutes the only trace was a slight haze to the air around me, that and the dampness of my clothes and the warthogs fur!
     But the walk served its purpose, tired and hungry we arrived back in Buckley. Again no fancy words this time but they'll come in time. So once more just a few pictures of the meander through the mist. One thing at least Willow doesn't play the spook game, shame really.











Can you believe these drops of mist left moisture on these webs?



      So till the next time take care and maybe then I'll have found my voice.

I love those last two photos particularly, John. But I am fed up with the everlasting grey cloud. :(

Fab photos as always. I particularly liked the beads of moisture on the webs, great quality of photography.
The wizard carved in the tree is wonderful, whats the story there?

Hi Kath, thanks for the kind words, the face in the tree is one of two carved there in the week. Not sure what they signify but remind me of wood spirits

The photography is suberb. Writing's not bad either!

It just shows how little time I spent in UK and how long I have been in Africa, I had to look Flintshire up on Google Maps!
