Chosen Island

Many thanks to Richard Tebb for this dreamy shot.

The fog was swirling around this Tuesday morning. Richard was inspired to brave a chilly morning and whip out his camera after listening to an interview I was doing at 6.45am.

I was chatting to the team at Gloucestershire Airport who were describing the scene from the control tower. I think we should have a gallery on the blog of the "islands" of the county when our wonderful hills become shrouded in fog. Any autumnal vision would be most appreciated. You can email me at

    A beautiful picture of Chosen Hill near Gloucester. This low-lying mist effect, that our Severn valley produces, creates wonderful conditions for photography at this time of year. But you have to be so quick to capture the moment before the fog burns off. Well done to Richard Tebb.

    Many thanks 'wilkesj' for pointing out where it was taken. We noticed the mist once on our way back from the Cranham area towards B-o-t-W. It looked just as if there was a layer of fluffy cotton wool over the valley. Wish I'd had my camera that day! Moral is: don't go anywahere without your camera!!
