Blue skies and sunshine

Its been so grey here lately that the  single day of sunshine we had yesterday seems to warrant a post.

The sun shone on the few remaining leaves, picking out a wide range of colours that I just don't seem to have been noticing during the grey days.

It continued to shine all day and I ventured out again, this time to walk around a still frozen lake. It was mid- afternoon and the sun was setting. The reeds and lakeside trees glowed in its light.

It was very cold but calm and still and we stayed until the sun finally disappeared.

We are back to freezing fog and greyness today but even one day of sunshine helps to dispel the winter blues.
