Photographer's Note

It's strange that you plan to take one picture but come away with a completely different one altogether. Driving along the A93 heading towards Braemar from Ballater in Scotland, I stopped to take a snapshot of a distance mountain covered in snow. below the tree line hung a white cotton wool mist and the trees looked wonderful above it. But once out of the car I realised that I did not have a good POV to take the shot I wanted. Below me at the kerbside was a low lying field and nestled in mist this old Kirkyard (churhcyard). It seemed hidden and secret and had a mysterious and almost magical quality about if it would disappear if i turned my head away. It would be tempting to say that the gravestones in fog created a spooky atmosphere but that cliche would not be true. There was a tranquility about the place. There was a sense of place, that here were the relatives and ancestors of the good country folk of the area ( and what a beautiful area it is too!) I don't know the name of this place and I had only a few moments in which to take the picture before we set off on the long road south.
I did just the usual PP work
