Joining in with Skywatch.
Linking upto Macro Monday.
One of the many beautiful wintery sunsets we’ve had.
Finally we’ve had snow! Not as much as you’d imagine if you listened to the news reports but enough for some fun and tracking of foxes (and other creatures) but the foxes are the most fun to follow, this one went over the frozen pond…
…then we saw this one, it was a fair distance away from us but on this occasion I already had my camera out and on, so managed to get a couple of photos (slightly blurry) whilst keeping the dogs in check, not that they really noticed – the snow has bought out their puppiness so they’re quite happy playing snowballs with my son!
Here’s the castle photo for January (just a reminder that they’re from quite a few years ago taken with my film camera – we took a photo every day of the castle for a year) looking through them I noticed this one with the expertly placed rain drop around the castle! By the way there are mountains and snow behind the fog and drizzle, honestly!
Our only opportunity since early December to do some more of this - the most time consuming part is finding the ice with natural holes in and then extricating it from the puddle without it breaking! The placing in the tree and taking photos is a joy if not fraught with the potential for disaster (we have lost quite a few – ice sheets I hasten to add, not children or dogs! )
It was a sunnier day this time so the blues and greens seen through the ice were particularly beautiful and I did notice when going through the photos that one of the branches we hung a sheet of ice on looked remarkably like a dogs head, or is it just me?
As I write this post I can see the first snowflakes of the winter just starting to fall – we have an amber warning for heavy snow tonight so hopefully we’ll be able to make our snowbird tomorrow.
