Reflections

Just a few reflections today, from the beaver pond I posted pictures of yesterday.  These December skies are so gloomy if there's no sun that everything looks dark.  We're entering the darkest two weeks of the year, when the sun seems to rise only a short bit above the southern horizon, but in only 10 days we'll pass the winter solstice and the days will start getting longer!!






I'm longing for some brighter colours to photograph, but I'm beginning to appreciate the subtle shades of brown, grey and dark green that are marking this strange late fall/early winter season.  Walked one hour + 15 minutes with the dog today; for 20 minutes of that she was off her leash romping and sniffing her way through the woods.

  4. 10 days, and our daylight hours will shorten, and we are not really into summer yet.!!! Love those sombre reflections.

  5. Much the same here most of the time, rather dark and gloomy. In fact probably darker as Southern England is further north than you.

  7. Look for beauty in every season, I say. You might find unexpected color! Just yesterday my husband and I saw the bright red crest on a ruby crowned kinglet for the first time ever.

  8. I see plenty of beauty as nature takes time off and rests. We are having record breaking warmth and beautiful blue skies and gorgeous sunsets. It's very unusual for us here at the jersey shore. I am appreciating it so much.

    I don't mind winter, I kinda' like the shorter days and slower pace. I've probably said that before!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
