Wet, workshop and webs on Wednesday

This morning we woke to a combination of a total cloud whiteout and drizzling rain - so as the title says this post, in the main, is about wet, webs and a few fragments from the workshop bench.

More of that whiteout - soft grey light and misty images.

But that means we also get to see the micro spiders' webs and lichen holding droplets of rain.

The images from the workshop simply capture some of the small fragments that littler the bench top - residue of lamp making.

So whilst there was not a walk in the wilds this morning there was the beauty of soft outdoors images and a look at the workbench through different eyes.


  1. Love the lichen shots... well, all really. And misty days are good inspiration for my paintings, no surprise there. :)

  2. Spectacular photos Barry! Thank you so much for sharing this amazing beauty with us.

  3. Hi VA and AA - sorry for the delay in acknowledging your visit to the post and comment - both are appreciated. VA - got to love lichen with droplets; and you are the master of the soft misty images. AA - it is always lovely to see what is happening in the 'backyards' of fellow artists. Go well, be well and create well. B
