My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

BRRRRR!! (13/12/12)

It is cold and damp. I can barely see the bird feeders for the fog. I’ll have to find them as they have just been visited by a large flock of Starlings which means they will be empty.

I decided to play around with the flash unit. Mainly to delay much needed camper cleaning.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAConsidering how cold and misty it has been for the past couple of days there is surprisingly little hoar frost. A cold Bulrush.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn equally chilly Teasel.

I have several more images on a similar theme but will spare you further purgatory.

On with the van cleaning.

The rain is forecast to return tomorrow. Where is the snow?

That’s all for today.

    1. I am hoping that I'll get a proper winter in Scotland after the holiday. There are few things worse than thawing snow in towns.

  2. Had some chilly weather here the last couple of days.
    Good luck with the van cleaning. Something I should do here, tidy up a bit, but I can't be bothered.
