Walking in a Winter Wonderland, part 6

In the morning of the 26th, we went for a walk in “our” woods, in the afternoon we visited my parents. I was saddened to see that some asshole had taken great pains to actually tie their plastic waste to the trees. There won’t be pics of that. We walked to the nearby fishing pond and back, bringing back childhood memories of walks with my grandparents.

There wasn’t a lot of light that day, it was all foggy, but that pond is high enough to catch a glimpse of sunlight over the fog.

Just use a wide angle lens and low light and the Norwegian fjords can go fuck themselves.

Same pond, just from the opposite side.

The smaller pond was frozen over.

    Loving the light in the first and second.
    Wish we could get our minuses back, the rain is washing away everything.

    Lovely photos, Giliell. Walking the same routes we did as kids can be wonderful exercise, especially if we can share a few memories along the way.
    Why would someone tie plastic waste to a tree? Geez.
    It’s raining here again. All our snow is gone and the ground still isn’t frozen.

    That second photo is stunning.

    There seems to be a breed of dog owner who know they should pick their dog’s shit up, but can’t bear to carry it until it can be disposed of in an appropriate way, so they pick and hang. It’s quite disgusting and it would be better if they flicked the sht off the path, at least htat way no-one is likely to step in it and it will rot away reasonably quickly, in the plastic bags it can be there for years.

    It’s quite nice here today,blue sky, pale from really high cloud, but definitely not grey!

    The sky, the light and the reflections are so dramatic in the first two and the third also has gorgeous reflections. The fourth is a fine catch.

    That looks like such a beautiful place, the light in the first two is wonderful!

    I wish there were water bodies near “my” woods. There used to be a stream big enough to be a source of edible fish, but the eucalypts dried up the springs that used to feed it. Now it only carries rainwater (when there is enough of it). It makes me angry, especially when I compare the descriptions I heard from my grandparents with those from my parents and what my eyes see now. In three generations an ecosystem was destroyed just by replacing trees with other trees.
