Freezing fog gives a ghostly appearance to this view of the little road that runs from our hamlet up towards La Motte.

The 52 Week Photo Challenge is back after its brief year-end hiatus and the topic for Week 22 is ‘Nature’. That’s certainly something that leaves plenty of scope, but I decided to go with something that’s typical for the time of year.
This is a detail from one of the oak trees in my fields. We are in the depths of winter, so obviously last year’s leaves are dead, but at the same time you can see the buds that will produce new leaves when spring arrives.

Yes it does seem a bit too early to be posting Christmas images, but it’s The Girl That Dreams Awake’s challenge, so who am I to argue? (Except with the numbering: this is Week 16, not 15.)
Anyway, here are some photogenic pine cones from the roadside about a mile down the road from here.

The low sun on the barren tree in the foreground made the whole image stand out for me.

In 2014 I set myself a project to record the passing seasons by every month taking a photograph of the field behind our house, from the same point of view. This week’s Photo Challenge provides an ideal opportunity to show the results.

On a snowy day last year on one of our local walks we came across a group of Shetland ponies in a field. This one was particularly curious.
