Taken on Bungay Common suffolk at 20.58pm on 25.6.09

Simon and I had watched the sun go down and as we stood we noticed a mist slowly lifting off the surface of the River in the distance and slowly creep and crawl over the land. The cows started to move more and more in our direction trying to find their grass to eat that was not disappearing under the mist. It was a wonderful thing to watch

A Magpie when it comes to photography I capture anything and everything that captures my eye and lens. A beginner in this field I love how the ordinary becomes less ordinary.

  • Thank you Trish, it was wonderful to stand and watch it for 5 to 10 minutes as it rolled over the fields, afraid i could not really do it justice.

  • Thank you Shaun, the mist was really something rolling in, spiking up and at one point you could hardly see the cows. LOL
