Freezing fog lay in the valley around Byland Abbey throughout this December day. The ivy was outlined in a deep frost fringe, and curled into a pattern reminding me of a William Morris wallpaper.
I’d gone to photograph Byland Abbey as I thought that by this time – around midday – the sun would be burning through the thick fog and creating atmospheric light. In fact, the fog was so dense the sun could not get through, and the temperature stayed at a maximum of around -4. The ivy growing along the wall was covered in a thick hoarfrost creating an almost abstract pattern out of this everyday plant.
Photographed using a Canon 5D Mark iii with 35mm lens.
