Monday, 2 November 2015
A mild spell for Halloween and the first day of November seems to be becoming a bit of a trend. Mornings and evenings have been misty and murky but if the fog lifts and the sun breaks through it’s been very mild in the sunshine.
The plan for the weekend was a little bit of steam train photography mixed in with some autumn scenery. It didn’t quite work out as planned due to the weather.
On Saturday we left home in some lovely sunshine heading towards York but we hadn’t got too far before we ran into some mist and low cloud making steam train or any other photography for that matter a bit tricky.
Sunday morning dawned foggy and we decided against a planned trip into the Peak District but by lunchtime the sun was out and it had turned into a lovely day. We set off for Stocksmoor in the afternoon for a spot of steam train photography. Lots of other people had the same idea!
When you’re busy photographing trains you have to have eyes in the back of your head to notice if anything interesting is going on behind you.
By the time we arrived home on Sunday it was just starting to get dark and the mist had descended again.
It hasn’t lifted all day on Monday so perhaps we’ve had the final fling of good weather as we head towards winter.
