Winter # 2 – Life is Sleeping

The hillside is really in the grip of Winter now. The trees are shivering in the winds from the north and the warmth of the autumn colours has been chilled  to a palette of  brittle greys.  Only the laburnams and the lime trees are still clinging to their delicate copper- coloured  seed pods as if they can’t quite bear to be left completely naked until the spring.

    LOVE this earthiness. Beautifully captured.

    Hope you’re doing well and having a lovely winter. I’ve fallen behind on my blog visits everywhere, but hope to make up soon.



    1. Thankyou Anne! Delighted you dropped by to visit! I know what you mean about falling behind with things, just trying to catch up myself. 🙂


  3. Lovely Jane….
    They’re all super photos, but I really like 14/9…
    I cant quite decide whether I prefer the cool or warmer tones, but that’s the one for me….Something rather more sad and wistful about it than the others.


    1. Aha, now I see what we’re talking about – which makes a change – oh I’m really glad those are the images you meant because I like those best precisely because they were a little frail and delicate looking 🙂

      1. In some strange way, it’s rare we drift into total bollocks….Somewhere there’s always a hint of something on a higher plane.
        Or maybe I just have indigestion.


      2. It must be something to do with that student diet 😕 :/ 🙂

    1. Thankyou as always Ma’am


  4. Life is sleeping–oh how I wish I were on this winter day too, Jane. Those seed pods look a most inviting place to nestle in for a long winter’s kip.
    Captive and beguiling as always, Jane. I love your artful efforts.


    1. Thankyou Shelley! I really do think they are tiny miracles of engineering, and very beautiful too!


    1. Thankyou Alex, I’m delighted you like this series of images. Winter can appear so bleak and bare but it really isn’t if you look closely 🙂

        Photography wise, it is arguably the most rewarding.
