A Word in Your Ear: Track

DSCF5078

Good morning from a cloudy Hastings.

 While going through my settings yesterday I noticed I can add some snow to my blog until the 4th January.  It is the least I could do to get into the Christmas spirit.  My daughter is complaining that Christmas is not right in the middle of summer.  Actually I don’t mind it.  Having had white Christmases, green Christmases, brown Christmases, wet Christmases and hot Christmases I know which one I prefer.  But then again there is a distinct feel in the air when trudging through snow in temperatures below freezing to midnight mass in  freezing chapel.  There is a special feeling listening to the Silent Night in german by candlelight after midnight.

Anyway I digress. This week’s challenge by A Word in Your Ear is track.  So I searched my archives and came across these photos of ducks in golden waters.  These photos were taken back in spring when the Kowhai trees were in full bloom.  On a still morning the reflection of this beautiful native tree is really impressive.  I was lucky to find some ducks swimming in them and loved the trail they left behind.  Unusually for me I haven’t edited these photos at all.  I didn’t want to spoil the colours or affect.  I hope you like them.
