We woke up to a heavy frost and the promise of mist on low ground, so the much needed lie in went straight out of the window. We were going to have to work fast as the sun was going to burn through the mist quickly, so we drove up onto Riseborough bridge and caught the sun just rising through the mist over the Vale of Pickering, beautiful! After that we headed over Riseborough hill and down towards Normanby Grange where we continued to get the sun glowing through the mist giving some interesting silhouettes.
After Riseborough, we had a look at the bridge over the River Seven at Great Barugh, but were a little disappointed by the scruffy look to the scene, but Janet did manage to capture this interesting cobweb. After Great Barugh, we tracked back to Riseborough and were treated to some lovely warm winter light on the trees and mist with a beautiful view over the vale towards Wrelton.
By this time the sun was up and the glare was too harsh, so we headed home for a coffee and a warm up and a chance to review our morning’s work.
