An awful early morning in august – not the morning but the time which was terrible.
The french river Seine hasn’t yet got rid of the very gray tone that lies like a rug.
Many don’t hesitate to call this color of gray too dull – but it’s a misunderstanding
because on summer mornings this heralds that it will be wonderful later in the day.
The Pont de Normandie is a road bridge, the total length is about 2150 metres
the bridge spans the river Seine just before the river reach the ocean
so linking Le Havre to Honfleur in Normandy, the northwestern France.
With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog

The titel is “stolen” from a Moody Blues song from the album “A Question of Balance“
Very early morning – the air close-covered by mist.
Visibility almost less than zero, until the sun’s rays have done their work.

“It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit”
*Antoine Rivarol – french journalist*
If the adventure doesn’t seem to be in the clear straightforward sharpness

The horizons of autumns will be perfect, I guess.
The last pic of the day first, the sun had boiled the clouds and mist away.
The inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
this is Lancashire UK, a perfect place for inspiring “kicks” – used lazy biking..
Guess autumn is a bit like memories, the horizon get a bit hazy.
For Band Aid concert in 1984, they sang “Do they know it’s christmas”
here we were able to sing “Don’t they know it’s autumn” – pretty green.
Gate to the (at that moment) peacefully Irish Sea.
Actually there’s a door in the building, guess it isn’t used much the small waterway limited.
A lock on the Leeds-Liverpool canal, old and well-used but effective.
An other greenish symphony emerges from the mist.
