This is a really stunning picture Barbara.

Barbara said...

Thank you :O) Mist makes for great photo opportunities (I added the light in the lamps myself as they were inconveniently turned off at the time!).

Au and Target said...

Oooh pretty spooky! We're watching Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and this is just the thing!

Au and Target said...

PS that "next Stig" thing on that book cover - does that mean the poor girl is expected to expire???

Barbara said...

I think quite a few girls are expected to expire! And men... I don't think 'the next Stieg Larsson' is a very good way of describing Jo Nesbo's books though... Nesbo is a much better writer. I thought Larsson's books very overrated.

Barbara said...

P.S. I love Basil Rathbone as Sherlock!

Ruth said...

Ooooh, lovely! It makes me think of Narnia!

Very atmospheric photograph. I like mist - it softens the edges and makes the most ordinary things mysterious.

Barbara said...

LOL! Hi Ruth, yes I never thought of Narnia!

Annelie said...

Wow Barbara, I just love this. It´s really beautiful. I like the black and white, and the light from the lamps....

Amy said...

I love your photo - not just the mist, but the composition is spot on!

Sylvia K said...

What a terrific post for the L Day! Fantastic capture and I, too, love the mist/fog and your composition is superb! Have a great week!

I can almost hear the echo of footsteps in the fog.

Gramma Ann said...

Very Moody looking picture, and a bit spooky looking too.

Wanda said...

What a wonderful photograph. Just gave me chills, and I found myself pulling my sweater tighter around me. Love it when I can literally "feel" a picture...and you've accomplished that.

very effective shot! the contrast between the lights and the gray rest of the pic is fascinating

Thanks all for your kind comments - glad I managed to get the atmosphere I was after, a sort of 'phantom rasberry blower of old London town' look ;O)

Perfect for this time of year! I'm looking for the goblins hiding in the shadows. :)

RuneE said...

As nice a piece of photographic art as I have seen for a long while. The added touch of the yellow in the lamps was just right.

Francisca said...

Well done, Barbara! We sure were in sync for L Day!
