There are often squirrels in the big tree by my balcony, especially at autumn nut season, but this little fellow was an Easter visitor. He must have become enboldenned to check out my plants while I was away house/dog sitting for my daughter. He was as surprised to see me as I was him lol!
Exausted but happy after a two hour snow walk capturing a bunch of gorgeous artwork care of the Siberian winds invading London.
Frozen lake with frosted snow.
Trees from the old flooded gravel pits emurgingthrough the ice – surreal!
Path between one of the lakes and the river (the only thing not frozen).
That’s not land but frozen water!
The wind tried its hand at sculpture here (notice the icycle sculpture formed on the branch hanging from the weir.)
The river resisting all attempts at transformation.
Farm at the canals side busily wheeling supplies – no animals out today!
Boats on the Grand Union Canal. The ice was melted in little circles around them – at – 4 deg. doubtless they had the heating full on!
No heating on this boat!
My new favourite walk, that has enticed me to treck three miles around the furthest lake three days in a row to get these shots. (first day I discovered it, second I brought my camera only to discover it was out of battery lol! Today perfect!) The river runs alongside on one side of the lake. I took 98 photos in all (so many gorgeous views!) these are some of my favourites.
My first morning joy is to step out on my balcony. You can see why! Wonder and appreciation for the beauty of nature is one of the purest forms of worship. How I love that God is an artist too!
When I see mist from my window I cannot resist! Out comes the camersand I head for the lakes!
The view from my new apartment.
I’ve often paused on shopping visits to Waitrose to take in the magnificent view from the check out, but never conceived I’d live in a place where I could indulge myself in it constantly. I think my guardian angel was taking notes and passed them on lol!
