Spike says:

17th Oct 2006, 12:30

OJ says:

Ooooh! Thank you for the highlight whoever that was.....the photo was worth kneeling in wet bracken in freezing mist :) It's a DSLR shot, not phonecam btw. Is that okay?

17th Oct 2006, 12:33

Spike says:

its still a great capture though!!!

and yes im sure the cold wet brakken was worth it.. in fact, i can see ti was.

i think Joe's to thank for the HL (well done joe)

OJ says:

I'm guessing so.... :)

And everyone else posts their "big camera" stuff...couldn't quite resist.

paintist says:

17th Oct 2006, 12:47

OJ says:

I thank you. I'll get a big head (to go with my wet knees).

Absolutely gorgeous!

crickson says:

Fantastic! I'm always looking for a nice wet cobweb to photo but never find one : (

17th Oct 2006, 15:09

OJ says:

Thanks all. Crickson, you want to try quite early on a very misty morning. Verging on freezing fog helps.

By the way, I should point out for the non-arachnaphobes, the architect was in residence. . Credit is due ;-)

crickson says:

Early?! In the morning?! Medically impossible for me I'm afraid.

17th Oct 2006, 15:15

OJ says:

Yeah, me too. By early, I mean before midday. :)

This was about 10am on a Saturday. The freezing fog coming across the fens between Norwich-Thetford-Ely this morning was something to behold. Eerie. This was pre-9am though, so no photos!

Gael says:

To use the Norfolk vernacular, "Bootiful!"
EDIT also reminds me of my fave VW quote re the "necklace of rememberable days"

17th Oct 2006, 15:31

OJ says:


Although the spider might not understand, being a Yorkshire spider! And yes, your favourite quote....

By the way, Gael, do you remember any children's story/legend, perhaps quite a frightening one that involves people or anything else being turned into a necklace/trapped in beads??? It's been nudging at the edge of my brain for a couple of days and it's annoying me...

17th Oct 2006, 15:41

Gael says:

doesn't ring any bells I'm afraid

17th Oct 2006, 15:45

OJ says:

It was worth asking! I read a lot of books as a child, it's probably nothing classic.

17th Oct 2006, 15:47

paintist says:

you might have read an adaptation of Indian folktales of Kali... skull necklace

17th Oct 2006, 15:56

OJ says:

Thanks paintist - looks interesting, it might have fused in my mind with this....

A Necklace of Raindrops by Joan Aiken. It doesn't look very chilling in the extract but I'm sure something bad is about to happen.

17th Oct 2006, 16:02

Gael says:

Glad you found it, I was going to suggest you ask Helen - funnily enough I'm sure that Joan Aiken was one of her favourite authors ...

17th Oct 2006, 16:05

Euphro says:

Were you in Ely this morning?

17th Oct 2006, 16:05

OJ says:

I will talk to Helen about it sometime then - or go skulking to the nearest children's library to re-read the rest of the story.

I came through Ely on the train this morning Euphro - from Norwich. There was much mist.

17th Oct 2006, 16:08

paintist says:

you are right OJ it does sound as if something interesting is going to happen.... I will have to look for it now...i am a sucker for myth and fairytales, this looks great :-)

17th Oct 2006, 16:14

Caine says:

Oh, absolutely fab, OJ. Beautiful. A very well deserved HL.

17th Oct 2006, 17:27

OJ says:

Thank you :)

You should see the high res...

17th Oct 2006, 17:29

mrs540air says:

Absolutely beautiful :-)

17th Oct 2006, 18:17

17th Oct 2006, 18:51

Dhamaka says:

oh wow

I'd love to see the high res, when you're able could you possibly send it?

this has got to get a HL, surely..

ah, it already has!

17th Oct 2006, 18:53

hildegard says:

Gorgeous. :)
And thanks for reminding me about Joan Aiken too.

18th Oct 2006, 02:51

UxB says:

Any chance you could send me a copy of the hi-res version? I'd love to use this as a wallpaper...

18th Oct 2006, 13:03

OJ says:

Hiya Dhamaka and UxB.

The high-res is on my laptop which is in the possession of teh wife this week, but I'll try to remember to send at the weekend.

Subject to CC license of course :)

Dhamaka says:

of course..
(for me personal use only..)

18th Oct 2006, 15:57

OJ says:

ps. Did anyone spot that the title reference was to a Gorky's Zygotic Mynci song? Also highly recommended! I'm pushing Welsh culture right, left and centre this week.

You're welcome Dhamaka.
