Foggy Morn

The first true fog of the season arrived today and didn't lift until about 10 a.m. I headed for the nearest scenic location, the wharf at Como, however it was looking pretty lacklustre as the wharf was still cordoned off for repairs and all the available angles looked pretty boring. I thought I may be able to get some decent shots on the bridge and spent a fair bit of time playing around with reflections in the puddles on the bridge and the spiders' webs attached to the wire fences alongside the railway track.

It was actually intriguing to see the variety of web structures - it was like a tiny spider village. Some homes were perfectly maintained, some damaged, some embellished by water droplets, some inhabited, some abandoned, some securely anchored, some clinging precariously to a single anchor point, some secluded and some clustered close together in groups. Although I was unsuccessful in locating a striking web heavily laden with glistening liquid orbs, it was an enjoyable way to spend a few hours, great to be out in the fog and I was able to capture a few acceptable shots.
