It has been freezing here for the past few days, so much so that it has made going out very hard indeed. However, it had to be done and today was as good as any. The early morning horizon was shrouded in dense white foggy clouds, the sky tinged with pearly pink. The ground hard and unyealding, but glittering in the first rays of sun to peep over the hill, each droplet of moisture a fiery crystal, blazing with a rainbow of colours. Breathtaking, and sadly beyond my capabilities to photograph. Maybe that's what makes it truly magical, because you can only see it through your own eyes.
The landscape is sleeping...dormant...faded.
But if you look closely, there are plants clinging to life and plants bursting into new life. The wheel turns....eternal..life giving.
I didn't venture far or stay out long, but it was good to behold the joys of nature and feel a luke warm sun on my back.
