But an amateur drone pilot has managed to capture the beauty of the skies above the Fenland mist - and has shared his footage for everyone to admire.

Ferdinand Pick, who is braving the cold weather and staying in a narrow boat at Denver Sluice, has had the drone for less than two weeks and already made four short films of the landscape around him.

He filmed the blue skies above the fog on Sunday (December 6).

Ferdinand said: “I didn’t expect it to be so beautiful a little over 100m up.

He added: “I was in awe of the heavenly peacefulness as it brought home to me how amazing our natural world is.”
