The frosts had melted, by now the sun had actually been up for a couple of hours. It’s warmth had finally penetrated the heavy bank of fog. Down here at ground level in the base of the valley the fog was still very thick. So other than a sort of warm glow in the sky you couldn’t actually tell the sun was high in the sky. It was noticeably warming up however, so what was once frost was now dripping droplets of water.

These once frozen spider webs were now silken strands covered in crystalline droplets of water. Running down the strands as the frost melted.

Flying the drone up once more this morning. Rising up above the remaining fog lying deep within the valley. It’s dispersing slowly but you can still see it’s thick blanket even here at 10AM. It had been a fantastic and most productive mornings shoot. Time for a late but well earned breakfast…
