“Condensational”

Days of coastal fog can be so annoying as the temperatures drop and the air is damp. One positive result is how condensation is formed on the tulips in the courtyard. The jewel-like colours sparkle with diamonds.

    1. I just had to go back inside and grab the camera when I saw all the droplets on these tulips PP. If I hadn’t been going out I would have gone for the macro lens and spent more time with them.

    1. I go for the orange, copper, red and dark purple varieties. Purple Dream turned out more violet, but still pretty and had flowered for ages, just on its death throes now. Next year I am going to try white, yellow and green with more of the very dark ones.

  1. Oooh, lovely, Jude! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m always spellbound by droplets on flowers. Sea fret is fine as a novelty, once in a while, but you do seem to be getting your share lately. I remember one day at the beach trying to capture the sea through the mists. Don’t think it was a huge success. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I had a go on the beach too, but not impressed. Interesting to see the heads of people and not the rest of their bodies. I think it is because the air is warm but the sea is still cold and colder than usual at this time of year.

  2. Great shots. We were in North Cornwall yesterday and experienced the coastal fog. But thereโ€™s always an upside. It looked very atmospheric around Tintagel too, I wish weโ€™d had time to stop.

    1. The heat killed off a few very quickly I believe. I still have half a dozen flowering at the front, but all the rest have finished.
