January by the Tweed

Winter Tree

Winter Tree and Flying Ducks

Ignoring bruised ribs from a fall on the pavement, last week I walked out into the frosty countryside, down by the Tweed, up the lane and along back through the small wood.  All kinds of birds about, fieldfares making their curious chirring clatter of a noise in the beech wood, I think an alarm call.  Walking by the river I came up quiet close to these two swans, who were much engaged in feeding. (Yesterday I saw a black swan, flying along the river, something I haven’t seen for years).

The light on this frosty day was delicate, and the snow seemed to mitigate the glare/darkness  that the camera produces in winter when it is pointed towards the sun.

Snowfall the last few days, grey light. Need to get back to the studio, back to birds feeding outside the window, music, new ideas, work.

    • Thanks, Babu. It’s a beautiful river, a border river. These shots were taken with my old camera (well, one on permanent loan from my husband), which is good for wintery skies.
