Not a promising start to the day. Cold, grey and overcast. I spent the morning wrestling with my PC, trying to persuade it that it really does have a scanner connected to it. But I looked up from my desk at lunchtime and discovered a cloudless sky, glorious sunshine, and no wind. Perfect for a walk in the snow.
I know that some of my readers have had quite enough snow for the time being. But anyway, you can join me on my walk if you like.
The Aurochs in the field just down the road seemed to be happy enough, munching their hay. And the crags in the canyon seemed be outlined like chalet roofs by the snow.
The way the sunlight played on the water, and the little rocky pools outlined by the snow makes me think of water nymphs.
The sunlight was streaming down at the end of this tree tunnel, as if you were about to walk into tropical heat. And Frosty was waiting to greet me just outside a farmhouse on my way home.
The lime kiln is covered in snow, and there are icicles that have formed inside its tunnels.
These evil-looking sheep (noble-looking?) graze at the top of the cliffs. A bit farther on, my path home always rewards me with a view down into the river valley.
And finally, down to the old mill and across the river to get back home.
