Afternoon in Winter
Photos: December 25, 2016
The temperature has created rather icy conditions - enough for fast sledding. A number of children were taking advantage of the hills to enjoy the swift downhill descent. Climbing up was more of a challenge as boots tried to grip the slippery surface.
A number of squirrels were out cavorting. They seemed to find food in the crusty snow.
They have little fear of humans as they stayed nearby in case we carried food for them. The rules say - no feeding the animals, but I am sure some people ignore that.
I love the light in the afternoon, low on the horizon. It outlined these trees...
and made these grasses glow.
