A Glasgow Autumn.
As autumn is in full swing at the moment across the UK I thought I'd do an autumnal collection to celebrate my 400th post on this blog. It's always better if you can get autumn colours damp for a photograph as they stand out more. October is perfect for this as cold mornings at this time of year often produce mist inversions over the city. Glasgow sits in a flat bowl surrounded by hill ranges so it tends to attract this phenomenon, as do other parts of the world with a similar geological set up and the right mix of temperatures colliding. Add in a few dozen drumlins which sometimes stick out the mist blanket, or tower blocks on slopes poking above into bright sunshine, and you have a perfect combination for natural magic happening.
As I'm all for father's spending quality time with their children on Sunday's I didn't make the competition any the wiser. Besides, I don't want my favourite locations getting too popular. Luckily, my blog is mainly visited by Americans and Russians these days, judging by the stats info, so any obscure tiny lay-bys I favour remain empty.
