Ambience: Weekly Photo Challenge

A Winter’s Tale

I took this photo last weekend while hiking in County Cork.   It’s a very typical outlook at this time of the year, when the fog and mist come down, and gives a winter ambience to the countryside.

Foggy mornings, sunny days!

“In nature, everything has a job. The job of the fog is to beautify further the existing beauties!”

When we visited my family in Frankfurt recently, this was our early morning view, changing by the second! The communication tower, known as Europaturm or Ginnheim Tower, is the second tallest structure in Frankfurt after the Main Tower, and looks very impressive at night when the antenna is lit up.   The top of the tower can turn, and did have a restaurant on top, but this has been closed for several years.

And later in the day, when the sun shines, the spire stands out in all its glory.

The Lace Makers of the Mountains

Yesterday we went on a hike in the Knockmealdown mountains, between County Waterford and County Tipperary.   On the way there was a lot of fog and mist, which burned off in the heat (yes, heat in October) of the day.     There were so many spiders’ webs in the hedges, looking like delicate lace hanging by a thread from the blades of grass.

Even though the mist lifted, we could still see the low clouds in the distance, sitting over the Golden Vale between us on the Knockmealdown Mountains, and the Galtee Mountains in the distance.

It was a strenuous day, but worth it for being out in the sunshine with beautiful scenery.
