Misty Coniston

Autumn Mist on Coniston

This weekend, my wife and I traveled up to the Lake District for a family birthday party.

On the Saturday morning, I headed out before sunrise in the hope of catching some mist on Coniston. And boy, was it misty! Really foggy in fact, and I had to drive carefully.

It was so foggy, I missed the car park I was heading for (without realising at first) and ended up parked about 100 metres further along the road, and this put me away from the easy path to the lake. Because I headed off hurriedly in the general direction of Coniston, I became soaked from walking through waist high ferns!

Eventually I found my way to the lakeside, but could see nothing of the mountains in the distance, so consoled myself with simplistic misty scenes.

I made it back to the hotel in time for breakfast which kept the missus happy wink
