Day 43 | The Last Unicorn

Animals and animated fantasy films are two of my most favourite things, and The Last Unicorn has to be up there amongst the best in the niche genre (a genre invented by me):

Jeff Bridges also provides narration too - another massive bonus!

Another one of my favourite Unicorn themed films is Legend. In terms of technical effects and make-up, I think it's yet to be surpassed:













Although, the true star of the film is Tom Cruise's teeth:

Day 42 | Saharan Smog

I've been up early most of this week trying to catch a glimpse of the Saharan smog before it disperses.

It's been foggy, but I haven't seen any evidence of the storm. No sand on top of my car like others have reported, but I have got a vile cold so if that's what the sand has brought with it then I'm not very impressed.

Anyway, I managed to capture the morning dew before it evaporated. Here's a layered image:
