I love that little swoop off to the left in this one, and the way the bare tree is playing 'follow the leader' and leaning off to the left as well!

I feel I can see the frosty breath puffing out of the cheeks of this walker, but perhaps I'm' just imagining how cold it is...

Is that a thin glaze of ice on the water too? You've really captured the essence of a cold winter's day in England in this one, I think, and not a flake of snow in sight, so well done!

Very best wishes to you,

“You've really captured the essence of a cold winter's day in England”

Thanks Sue, but it is more luck than judgement! I am a walker with a camera and that day in December was just very cold, but the sun came later to make the day quite pleasant, and we hardly saw a sole in a popular location. Even the birds seemed to be missing on that day, when normally there are several winter visitors, although as we passed the power pole there was a kestrel on the following pole, we stopped and for the first time was able listen to the call of that particular bird.

Have a great New Year!

Hi Diggory

Yes I am a Brummie! Although I now live in Wolverhampton.

I presume that Roger is also a Brummie, but we come from different sides of the City.

(If you are interested in Football I will explain!)

Regards Peter

Hi Diggory

Birmingham is divided between Birmingham City Football Club and Aston Villa. Roger would support Birmingham, but I was born in Aston district and follow Aston Villa.

Now as Black Sabbath come from Aston I think you should support the Villa!

Best wishes Peter
