Fog all day, but not on The South Downs
This foggy view isn’t unusual over Midhurst and the Rother Valley. It’s a temperature inversion in the atmosphere. As air rises it normally gets colder, but if the temperature is only a couple of °C and there’s no breeze and clear skies, the reverse can happen and the air nearest to the ground gets stuck there – trapped under a layer of warmer air above it.

Trees in the mist
I had to make a brief stop on the way to work this morning to run into the woods with my camera! I got a few funny looks….

Tree tops in the fog
How about this for a stunning view from the top of Bepton Down? The view’s never the same from the South Downs Way! Beyond the fog and the mist is Midhurst.
I love to take photos, please take a look at my Photostream on Flickr.
Sunrise over The South Downs
Here’s the view at 7 o’clock this morning over the Rother Valley near Midhurst. The South Downs stretching off into the distance – and all set to be the warmest day of the year so far!

Snow on the water
My 8 o’clock meeting was cancelled this morning so I stopped off for 5 minutes to take a photo of the snow instead!

The view from Harting Down
The view from Harting Down on The South Downs at 7:00am on my Tuesday morning drive to the office. You’ve got to marvel at English weather and the English countryside sometimes! The fog settles in the low lying areas whilst the top of the Downs is sitting in sunshine. It’s quite an odd sight but it’s not unusual and doesn’t last for very long. The convenient thing about this situation is that there’s a National Trust car park at the top of the South Downs – so no need to hike up the hill first thing in the morning!
And still we have snow!
Stunning Boxing Day views from the top of Linch Down. Cold yet brilliant. And we’ve now had snow since the beginning of December. 2010 has been a cold winter for sure. That’s The South Downs Way in the background, not many people up here today.
Can you believe it! Snow on Christmas Day.
It’s a white out on the Downs! Not many people up here today, but a great way to walk off Christmas Lunch! To the right of the fence is The South Downs Way, but the view isn’t so great here at the top of Linch Down in the clouds. Happy Christmas y’all.
Happy Christmas everybody!
Nobody’s stirring, not even a mouse because it’s a white Christmas and there’s snow everywhere! Whoo-hoo!
Still snowed in!
Our big trek to Cocking in the snow. Thank goodness the Bluebell Inn was open! It was a bit cold but thankfully the pub was warm and toasty. Still no sign of the snow clearing. 2010 is ending with a real cold snap.
