I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Shift and tilt

Shift a little to the left and tilt your eye line......then you'll find me perched  precariously on a garden chair - naughty I know - looking up at the skies trying to focus through all that mist.

I did wobble quite a bit if I'm being completely honest and I scare myself quite a lot.  Though I think that had more to do with a giant spider (the size of a word of a lie. Welllll maybe a little embellished) abseiling from his web to have a nose at what I was doing from the comfort of my shoulder. Scream 'you betcha'...a blood curdling one at that.

But sometimes only the best viewing to be had is at an angle and with a little bit of spontaneous balancing.

The webs seemed to be dangling purely by themselves - not attached to or supported by anything else, just there - hanging in the mist.  It was quite a strange thing to witness, but most definitely a magical one......all rolled into one. 

A bit of a surreal moment I guess, but one I'm glad I took some time over. With a risk to be sure and a little bit of effort I manage to capture my ghostly webs all dressed up and glistening for the very last day of October and this spooky 'All Hallows' Eve'....happy birthday little sis xxx

Have a good one - and don't get too freaked I do.
