Fridays Fences and Skywatch Friday

Two for the price of one today.

I woke up this morning to a soft fog, so I grabbed the camera and went for a stroll around the garden, snapping whatever looked promising. I loved the results, so thought I would share them with you, even though they only vaguely relate to Fences and Sky.

 I have featured the dam on Weekend Reflections before, but I loved this shot of the mist in the background.


This old house is one of the original houses built here in the 19th century. The back wall of this old house was part of the original stone cottage. The first settlers came here in1861and this cottage was probably built in the 1880s as an extension of the original cottage.  The house we live in was built around 1900.

This old place always looks like it belongs in a horror movie and of course the mist and fog just add to the atmosphere.

Liz Needle - linking with 'Fridays Fences' and 'Skywatch Friday'. If you look carefully you can see a fence and of course mist is part of the sky!
