Hoping to shake off some of the Christmas holiday period cobwebs Mrs M and I went on a morning visit to Charlecote Park. There had been a heavy frost the night before, the car was thoroughly iced up before we started and there was a thick, cold, fog laying low over the houses. The sun was trying to shine through but was being severely diffused by the pea-souper.

When we got to Charlecote, we found it too was laying beneath a thick fog and frost with the sun trying desperately and ineffectually to burn it off. The light that sifted through the fog though was glorious. Softened, it gave the trees and surrounding parkland an eerie, unearthly feel.

This image was taken with the Fuji X-T1 and 18-135, f/3.5 – 5.6 lens. I overexposed by a stop to ensure that I got the glow from the sun, and you can see that the sun itself, diffused by the fog, looks huge in the sky.

Today’s photograph is from Charlecote Park where I went on Wednesday after an abortive attempt to go to Compton Verney to see the Martin Parr exhibition. Anyway the latter didn’t happen so as I was passing Charlecote I popped in. I spent the next two and a half hours, wandering around the gardens, watched herds of deer and walked through fields of buttercups. A very pleasant visit.
