Wednesday November 25th 2020 – I took to the canal towpath on the way home which was a bit of a mistake as it had rained a fair bit in the morning, and the way was lined with muddy puddles that made for damp legs.
But there was a treat waiting.
As I travelled, my headlight started picking up swirls of mist over the water, and by the time I was near the new pond and Clayhanger Bridge, there were appreciable clouds of vapour rising and tumbling above the water, but only in short stretches, whereas others were clear.
This phenomena is a meteorological inversion and is absolutely captivating to watch.
The bike headlight did a great job of lighting the scene up. It really was gorgeous. Best I’ve seen for a few years.
