Misty campus evening

Thursday 10th January 2019, 4.30pm (day 2,695)

Misty campus evening, 10/1/19

A full day in Manchester, and into the evening as well. By late on the city had become clamped under a vast sea of fog; here at 4.30 the first inklings of it give a romantic quality to the older remaining campus buildings.

View of Heptonstall

Sunday 23rd December 2018, 10.35am (day 2,677)

Misty Heptonstall, 23/12/18

On the drive over to parents and parents-in-law for Christmas, a view over to Heptonstall, which rises above Hebden Bridge (being the original village) and has featured on many pictures in the past. Perhaps I have post-processed this one too much but with the continuing grey light, in colour this one looked kind of wan and washed out, the mist being just patches of out-of-focus space. In black and white I prefer it and the church comes out more.

Mysterious mist

Monday 29th October 2018, 8.50am (day 2,622)

Mysterious mist, 29/10/18

Sometimes, despite all the bvious faults in a photo (here, rampant lens flare), it’s still worth going with just because it’s different. The ‘mist’ is actually steam from a heating vent being pumped out by the old mill on the way to Hebden Bridge station. A beautiful morning today, but very cold, with a sharp frost.

Misty morning

Friday 27th October 2017, 8.05am (day 2,255)

Misty building site, 27/10/17

It became a very bright and sunny day in Manchester but at 8am the whole city centre was wreathed in this rather eerie mist. A long and busy week comes to an end; time for a break….

Sunset mist

Saturday 26th November 2016, 3.10pm (day 1,920)

Sunset mist, 26/11/16

Another very beautiful day, ending beautifully. The ‘sun’ poking through the hillside is in fact a reflection off one of the houses on Heptonstall Road. Mist filled the air this morning and by the looks of things, so it will tomorrow morning too.

Sunrise wing

Sunday 5th April 2015, 6.15am (British summer time) (day 1,319)

Sunset wing, 5/4/15 Taken somewhere over Wales on our final descent into Manchester this morning, allowing for the time difference a 19-hour journey door to door. The humps in the foreground are the wing and engine; behind are various hills poking above a layer of mist and fog.

Misty morning

Wednesday 12th March 2014, 8.30am (day 930)

Misty morning, 12/3/14

It was actually another beautiful day today but I saw nothing of this; due to my wanderings yesterday I really needed to get down to do some work today so never left home. So here is that old staple, the view from my house, over Hebden Bridge. The sun did not burn through this mist until well into the morning.

Pennines in mist

Sunday 21st October 2012, 9.15am (day 423)

Pennines in mist, 21/10/12

Flew over to Moscow again today, where I’m working all week. My intention was to post a totally gratuitous photo of Germany, where I changed planes, purely to get an 8th country onto this blog. But though I got some decent shots of Frankfurt today, where it was a lovely sunny day, this shot of the Pennine hills just outside Manchester as we took off this morning has to be the winner. Germany can wait. I’ll be passing back through on Friday so we’ll see if an equally gratuitous shot makes it then. Meantime, the mist.

Mist on the hill

Sunday 14th October 2012, 8.30am (day 416)

Mist on the hill, 14/10/12

A somewhat boring day – had to work, for the third Sunday in a row – but a beautiful one, particularly in the morning. Hard to capture the combination of blue skies, a sharp chill in the air and mist clinging to the sides of the valley first thing, but this is my best shot.

View of Bergen

Tuesday 8th November 2011, 1.10pm (day 75)

Bergen view, 8/11/11

The first time I came here, in September 2010, I developed an opinion that this might be the world’s most spectacular city – see this pic on my Flickr site for further evidence – and I have seen nothing this time to change my mind. If only things were half the price that they were, because this country sure makes you pay to enjoy its beauty.
