The above thought did cross our minds a few times when we were on the Isles of Scilly, due to the foggy nature of about half of our week there. Certainly it focuses the mind on what to photograph and how when the most essential ingredient to a photograph, namely light, is either not there much or is diffused through cloud so thick you might as well be walking around with a sheet over your head.

A solution is maybe not to concentrate on the views –  that you’d very much like to have but I am sure a few photos exist already if you search the internet or buy postcards – and show some of the details. Unfortunately, getting so close to details so that you can see them necessarily means you lose the context of the ‘where’ it is, so all of the shots in this little gallery from last week are taken in the Isles of Scilly but you’ll have to take it from me that they were because it’s unlikely that you’d know otherwise!
