Winters' depth


 


{pictures taken December 27th 2012 - Stodmarsh, Kent}

One of those rare moments when the clouds parted for a brief moment revealing a smattering of blue sky underneath the grey.  Strobes of sunlight beaming out - almost dazzling - like a water coloured painting, awash with beauty and promise.

I'm just trying to take it slow - breath in, breath out - and remember all is not bad in the depths of Winter and even January can delight - if you know where to look.  Seek and you shall find...if you want to.

  1. My motto exactly as I sit here staring at all the rain coming down and the grey grey skies as they are lowering themselves inch by inch...

  2. Some stunning pictures there Nina. I really love the colours that still shine through even in the depths of winter.

  3. How I miss Stodmarsh. The last time I visited I was amazed how much the reserve had grown. Three marsh harriers, tree sparrows, short-eared owls, beardys, and a Montague! Unbelievable...
    Just wish it was easier to get to (no car) and I was fitter.
    Please, for this ex-Ramsgatonian, could ou post more of these, please?

  5. Taking it slow, what good advice to yourself and for me to remember - my frenetic toddler is rather demanding just now so I do need to remember to enjoy those brief moments when she's peaceful and occupied! juliex
