Catching the Fog

This morning I took a lovely group of people for a wander around the many pathways that crisscross the beautiful Durlston Country Park. This walk was billed as a photography wildlife walk and even though the fog took a little while to lift there was more than enough to keep us amused.
Plenty of birds were visible right from the start with Jays, Magpies and Jackdaws making themselves heard, keeping just enough of a distance from us.
First stop for us was the meadow where the raising fog was leaving behind millions of chrystal-bright droplets of water that held on to every surface. Spending time changing position and camera settings, using the water topped seedheads and decorated spider's webs, can prove invaluable when you are learning what your camera can do for you.
Using the macro settings too can take you into a world that is often ignored.
