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.
