Mist and Fire
Friday 11th December 2020
Went for a misty walk on the heath around sunset, then later on in the evening went and sat in Jeremy's garden for a bonfire with some wine.
London December 2020
Was feeling restless working today, decided I needed some fresh air and exercise, so called it a day at 3:30 and headed to the heath to catch the tail end of the sunset.
There was a pleasing hint of mist on the slightly higher parts of the heath.
Very muddy underfoot though!
Interesting effect of perspective creating by moving back and zooming, making the London skyline seem much closer than it really is on the top of Parliament Hill.
Nice combination of mist and sunset around here.
I really like this picture, the mist, the silhoetted trees and the fading light.
The barrow, still a bit of light lingering here at 4pm.
I sat by the barrow for a while, without any wine for a change, and just enjoyed the peace and quiet.
Nicely silhoutted barrow and still some hints of pink in the sky.
A bit of the mist visible here as well.
Heading home now.
The London skyline. Really must start bringing a tripod!
Later on, in Jeremy's garden, where the plan was to sit outside and catch up around the fire with a glass of wine. I got the fire going while Jeremy was indoors for a bit attending to domestic duties.
I thought it might be a case of an hour of faffing around to get the fire properly established, but it pretty much went with the first match.
One of Jeremy's jobs is as a carpenter, and so we were burning some offcuts from his work.
This included some oak I think. It all burnt impressively well.
I set up my phone to do a self timer shot here.
Me, the fire, and tonight's wine - some Rossignol Trapet Gevrey Chambertin.
More shots of the fire.
I ended up having a rather extended period of time sitting outside by myself in Jeremy's garden (about an hour!) while he attempted to deal with domestic issues indoors. Still I was quite happy, with the fire and the Gevrey Chambertin.
The fire later on as it was reducing to embers - I think Jeremy had finally joined me outside by this point.
One final hurrah for the fire wih some old floorboards, before we called it a night.
