Foggy Lake

Mount Abu – Rajasthan.

It was hard to get out of bed this morning. I took one look outside, had a dingo’s breakfast and went back to bed. I eventually relented and got going at about 7am. But it was still foggy as hell. I was thinking it might lift soonish.

But it did not. This Black-crowned Night-heron was waiting for a fish in this bush. He stayed still for ages, but no action. You could hardly see him. I did no processing just so you could get an idea of what it was like.

I climbed up this hill a bit, hoping to get above the mist, but no go. So I came back down and took a walk to Honeymoon Point.

There were a couple of birds in the murkiness, but not much.
