Two faces of winter

The pictures below are of the same tree taken on two consecutive days, yesterday and today (Friday).   Yesterday shiny patches of bark sparkled in the  brilliant winter sunshine.  Today, following an overnight fall of snow (our first this winter!) the sun still shone, though somewhat intermittently.

Frost patterns (4)

To offer an alternative interpretation, this picture of frost on grass (taken at the same time as the recent posts) has been given a touch of watercolour filter.

Frosty morning patterns (3)

When I look at the images below I can feel the crunch of the frosty grass beneath my feet.

Not what I planned!

This image is not what I intended!  It is the result of a masking experiment that went wrong.  But hey, I quite liked the result so here it is!

New Year, new shoots

A fruit tree  in the field next door was somewhat mercilessly ‘pruned’ (massacred!) a few months ago.  One could feel the pain.  But, encouraged by the mild weather in the second half of 2014, the tree has valiantly fought back and has produced a prolific number of sturdy, burgeoning young shoots that, in a chaotic way, form an attractive spectacle.   This picture is really an act of celebration!

Frosty morning patterns

I enjoyed the ‘etched’, abstract patterns produced by the early morning frost on the grass in the neighbouring sheep field.

Abstract 179


After the activity of the festive season,  a little quietness and calm seems appropriate.
