Today in Renfrewshire there was a lovely mist after the rain went away. There was a layered “shades of mistiness” effect that I couldn’t resist. I haven’t felt like stopping by roadsides recently due to lots of large and upsetting changes in my life, but I’m glad that the desire to do so here was…

    I’m really sorry to hear that things are not good for you atm, Matthew. Hope you get some rays of sunshine despite the rain. Take care.

  • Hi Matthew, I had noticed that you hadn’t posted anything for a while.

    I too like this shot very much…you nailed the selective focus and DOF spot-on. The shot works very well because of Bethan’s dramatic eyes (nice catchlights!) and the slices of green add an air of mystery…wonderful!
