  2. What a very bitter icy collection of shots…..I feel the colour seeping out of my skin just looking at them. Love the muted winter palate

    • Thanks so much, Seonaid. I particularly like photographing the water as it goes over the weir, that silvery silkiness being broken up into waves. The sky was quite strange last night, all these shots came as I was finishing my walk round the Lees in Coldstream and was thinking of putting away the camera. We have a hard frost this morning, after this mild winter.

    • Thanks, Mary, good to hear from you. I wrote a reply but it seems to have vanished. It was a strange day for taking photographs, as the light was so pale and delicate, there was none of that sunset glare. My new camera photographs differently from my original one, so I am still not sure how things will turn out, but I did feel when I took this photograph that there was something I liked about it. It’s a beautiful spot. Sometimes there are swans here, but the river has been very empty of birds this week, don’t know where they have all gone; only seen a big family of ducks, floating about in the reeds.

    • Thank you for your comment, Mary. I kind of hoped this photograph would come out all right. The sky was rather amazing, with that bluish flare, and those two streaks of light going the other way. The light had almost gone, but because the sun was dim rather than doing a sunset glare, the camera picked up the sky, which was beautiful. This photograph, and the one of the guinea fowl, were the last of the day before I turned for home.
