Last sunday, the fog creeped in over the felled area on the ridge by our farm, and made the whole place look like a deserted battleground, or maybe the remains of a long gone forest fire. As my followers on Tumblr probably know too well, I am fascinated by all those wonderful photos of fogs […]
My annual hike, or something like that. I do go for a lot of walks in various terrain throughout the year though, but I rarely go on those proper hikes where you’re out walking for hours on end. And it’s fine, because my body is in no shape to walk that far very often! (I guess […]
I took these photos one morning in late September, while showing my boyfriend’s family around the farm. The sun had just appeared from behind the mountain, the grass still covered in soft morning dew.
