Sunrise at Chew Valley Lake II

Call-time for extras was half an hour earlier today, so my stop-off at the lake on the way home was half an earlier too. 

It was a lot mistier this morning. Dragon's breath! 

It was even dense on the road. 

I decided to stay and watch for a while. As I said to the guy who paused alongside me, if you have to be up this early, you might as well make the most of it. 

'Life is beautiful, isn't it?' he answered.

A rag-tag of crows flew by ... 

... and I could just make out a heron amongst the ducks.

This mist thickened and my toes grew really cold in my sandals. I wondered about driving on home. 

And then something started to happen ... 

... and I quite forgot I was shrammed.
