First Frosty Frozen Fields (Faked)

This morning was cold:  The first day this autumn that required a scarf.  Colleagues arrived at work saying it was two degrees below freezing.  I took their word for it as I don’t have an iphone with a thermometer app.   (My attitude to iphones is to wait until the price is below £20 and then get one.)

Riding to work I watched for a lovely frosty field to photograph.  The sky was overcast and the sun showed no sign of breaking through.  But soon after crossing the motorway there was a suitable field to my left:

Cycling in the cold crisp air is absolutely not a problem, as the effort warms one up just the right amount. 

Getting home and going to download the picture, my camera made a horrible rattling noise as I took it out the case.  The little flap was open! The batteries nearly falling out! There was no card in the camera!  I searched frantically to see whether my beautiful picture had been saved – but no luck.  You get what you pay for, as my children keep telling me.  This camera doesn’t save anything if you haven’t got a card.

So it’s confession time. The observant amonst you  may have noticed the contradiction between the picture and the paragraph above it.  Reader, I faked it.  The picture you see is somebody else’s frosty field.  Mine only exists as the pale shadow of a ghost in my memory.

Please forgive me, I’m going to resolve never to do that again.
