The North Downs in East Surrey, covered in mist. Somewhere down there is the M25 motorway!

Sometimes you just have to stop and admire the beauty of what surrounds you. The scenery in this picture made me do just that. I was driving the kids to school along some back roads at the edge of the North Downs to avoid major roadworks.

It was a route I had only taken once or twice so wasn’t too familiar with it. As I rounded a corner I saw this; a mist covered valley. Believe it or not, somewhere in amongst that mist is the M25 motorway! I think it’s best covered up, don’t you?

I thought it was a beautiful, early morning scene. That said, the picture isn’t perfect. It wasn’t until I came to rip it from the memory card I noticed the twigs in the top right corner. I considered editing them out but felt they maybe added something to the scene.

I know some of you love the technical detail so here it is; the picture was shot in auto mode (I was by a busy road, I didn’t have much time to experiment!). ISO was 100, aperture f5.6, focal length 55mm and shutter speed 1/60sec.

    Beautiful view, hard to believe there’s a motorway hidden in there somewhere! I quite like the wee branches poking in to view at the side!

  2. Great photo. I do love early morning misty shots. It’s always when I’m driving that I spot something I want to photograph – it’s rarely convenient to stop or find somewhere to park!
