Golden Orb…

I am flat out with work at the moment and so this is the first time I have properly logged into WordPress for what seems an age (well 5 days!!), and is likely to be this way for another week or so.  In turn, I am snatching photo opportunities when I can.  This image was taken last Thursday morning just after sunrise with the fog so thick you could look at the shape of the sun 🙂

    Oh dear, I think I’m going to have to go and have a sit down >>> absolutely crushingly beautiful, my friend, maybe the best thing of your’s that I’ve seen >>> and certainly certainly certainly something that I would like to call my own! You have hidden depths! Adrian 🙂

    Reblogged this on FATman Photos and commented:
    I first started following Lisa Kimmorley’s blog because we share a liking for Silver Efex Pro software – and then found that she knows Bristol too, and the West Country. I enjoy her photography (she is starting into infrared now), but I can only say that I am knocked completely sideways by this particular image. To me, it is an object of absolutely CRUSHING beauty, its as simple as that. It is an impression the natural world, very little is sharp – can you see the ducks? – but it moistens my eyes and moves my soul. I very much want to produce images like this one. Technicals? The almost letterbox format suits it exactly, and having the sky featureless is a decided plus – and as for the rest of it – WOW!!! Adrian

    If this image were the last thing I’d ever see, I’d be fortunate (and sad). All the above comments are understated.

    Ethereal is the word that come to mind first. Mornings like this need to be captured – the spirit of them is so often fleeting. Beautiful capture, Lisa, and Adrian is absolutely right to praise you for catching this.

    A BRILLIANT photo! Foggy weather is one of my favorite photo conditions. I love the atmosphere of mystery such a one morning…..
