Misty mornings

The morning air is full of moisture; the atmosphere is still and mysterious.

(Click on these images to enlarge, and see the real beauty.)


The lacemakers are busy.


As are the invisible decorators. Crystal beads are popular again this year.




Magical, magical. I am five years old again, struck silent with wonder.


PS I didn't get to Exeter after all - I got the horrors about spending hours in shops, and decided to stay home and paint furniture instead. But first I had to visit the spidery wonderland that is revealed in damp weather....

I like your last photo in this series especially.

I think they're beautiful. Much better to watch miniature lace makers at work than a shopping trip. Isn't it amazing how much tiny detail there is around - often right at our feet!

IM sure the John Lewis in Exeter is no more exciting than the one you rarely went into in Newcastle!

Don't those quiet little wonders just knock your socks off? Wonderful photos.

Lovely. I was admiring misty webs stretched across the gorse bushes this morning.

I particularly like the crystal bead decorations.

Far nicer than shopping.

This is the time of year when I move forward SLOWLY when outside. Much as I admire the beautiful work of the lace workers (your lovely description) I dislike the gossamer attaching itself to me.
