On Wednesday (15 October 2014), Mel had to travel up to London early in the morning, so I decided to walk with her down to the station and then carry on to the quay. We had walked along the quay ten days earlier in the blazing sunshine; now, it was misty and the sun was barely out and the views took on a hazy, ghostly aspect.
Our favourite boat is the Yoffee. I haven't a clue what the boat was named after: a Google search turns up the Yoffee Coffee house in Airmont, New York, the Yoffee Frozen Yogurt shop in Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia (4 stars on tripadvisor!) and Norman Yoffee, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology and Near Eastern Studies at the University of Michigan, whose career has "oscillated between the fields of Assyriology ... and Anthropology" according to this biography.
We had walked along West Quay that Sunday as I wanted to try and get a nice shot across the marshy banks of the Colne out towards Rowhedge. The picture below was the best of the bunch and shows you how gorgeous the weather was last month.
Now, early in the morning, I thought it might be fun to try and get a similar shot in the mist.
