Ethereal light

by Helen Hooker December. 19, 2017 1122 views

I expected to wake up to thick fog this morning. Fortunately the weather forecasters had got things wrong so I made my train journey down to Sussex under clear skies. By the time I arrived in Bosham a thin layer of cloud was shrouding the sun, throwing an ethereal light over the harbour. As luck would have it the tide was in so I was able to photograph reflections of the village in the distance rather than acres of smelly mud!

A piece of art, like a painting.

Lovely.  Reminds me a bit of the Vermeer painting of Delft.
