MISTS AND MEL­LOW FRUIT­FUL­NESS

Quarry Hill, Dorset

Mist is mag­i­cal. Au­tumn in lingerie. Tan­talis­ing and ethe­real, it be­fud­dles the adult brain’s abil­ity to judge dis­tance and bids forth child­ish fan­cies about what might ex­ist and what the day might hold. All you need is a clear sky (so the ground can ra­di­ate away its heat), a cold night (so the air reaches its dew point), and low wind. Moist ground or an in­com­ing warm front to load the air with water vapour won’t hurt ei­ther. Com­bine with a slightly el­e­vated view­point ( like here at Quarry Hill near Brid­port in Dorset) and there you have it. A fa­mil­iar view made rav­ish­ing.
