Frosty New Year




After a very rainy and stormy month of December, New Year’s Eve offered us a little bit of change in that it was dry, still and frosty. It was also foggy; but the frost and no wind was enough to drag me and the camera out for quite a long walk before noon. Not long as in going very far; but as in almost losing track of time getting into frosty photo shooting mood in the park.

Before I got as far as that, and the camera was still in my bag, I heard honking noises in the air above my head. It was a small group of swans seeming in a hurry to flee south.

They needn’t have bothered, really. Today we’re back to rain!


Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday
