Today’s Pictures: 1 Jan 21, New Year’s Day

Winter sun shines through trees with a light dusting of snow and a touch of frost.

A new year, but this project, begun at the start of April last year and aimed at bringing joy to those confined indoors because of Covid 19, continues. As we enter winter here in the forest surrounding my home, I’ll vary the pictures to show scenes from sunnier times. After all, the intention here is to share enjoyment, and pictures of dull days will rarely achieve that aim.

Bike tracks wind along a forest track through light snow.
Ice and snow attack the juncus growing in a large pool at the side of a forest road.
Sunlight sparkles the frozen water drops on a winter tree and overhead blue sky turns the shadows blue.

We’ve had our first snow and frosts. How many more days of such weather will visit us is an unknown. The valley in which our village sits has its own micro-climate and we often find our days are dry when just over the hill they’re receiving a soaking, or across the river they’re baking under the sun when we’re dodging raindrops. Whatever happens, I’ll try to give you pictures to brighten your day. Some will be from overseas, too. And others will be from different parts of Britain, as the mood takes me. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Light snow brightens the ground on our trek homeward.
And to warm your hearts, here’s a sunset over the Mediterranean sea, taken in summer months.

The more people who share these posts on social media to their friends and follower, the more people we will reach. And it’ll also show more of them our wonderful world. Maybe, between us, we can restore some love and respect for nature and slow down the damage we’re doing to our environment. Thank you.


If you like my pictures, why not have a look at my gallery? You can find it here, or a smaller selection through the ‘Gallery’ tab at the top of the page.

    1. It’s almost all gone now, Lynette, though the temperatures are unusually low for us.
      17 months will fly by, especially as you’re so busy up there. And it’s already 1 day less!
      I kept a chart I could daily cross off the days as I approached retirement from my last job; it helped.
