At long last. I finally have broadband again. I was beginning to think I would never see you all again.
I had given up any hope of ever sending an email during the rest of my lifetime and had purchased a rather nice blanket, this was for use with the fire pit I was planning on building so I could communicate with people via smoke signals. Not sure if a photograph would transmit very well using this method, but I felt like I was in the dark ages.
It is definitely true what they say, "you don't miss it until it's gone", and have I missed my broadband.
When I saw the light on the router illuminate about 20 minutes ago I felt a tear roll down my cheek. I have been waiting all morning, today is "Activation Day" according to the letter from my provider, it's been one of the longest days of my life.
Anyway, I'm back and here is todays offering.
Rather like the way I have felt over the last month with no internet access it was taken looking out to sea through the fog.
This is one from my epic trip from York to Hetton following the coast and visiting the towns on the way.
I left Gill and Lisa in a very foggy York and headed off for Bridlington, the going was slow and laborious as I followed what seemed like endless A roads in what can only be described as a total pea souper of a fog. I was beginning to think the day would be wasted if this white blanket didn't lift, not many shots to be had during a total fog out.
I arrived in an immensely foggy Bridlington and headed straight for the beach, I'll brave the beach in any weather, not wearing swimming trunks though. I'm not that daft, what do you mean I am, well, maybe just a little.
Upon seeing the weather with the sun trying to break through the fog and the groynes that were reaching out into the sea I immediately attached my welders glass to the front of my lens and headed onto the beach. The fog was rolling across the scene as it was carried on gentle breeze, rather like a ghostly tumbleweed.
During the long exposure it would become perfectly clear on the beach momentarily and then it would grasp you again in its cold grip. I could hear sea birds calling, dogs running as they enjoyed their walk and people chatting, but at times could see no-one or nothing. A very weird experience I have to say.
I hope you like this one. Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
