early morning walk

dropped the car off at the garage for a repair to one of the sensors and walked back home with the dog. After a hike on the cycle-path we entered the golf course; the general public is allowed access onto a footpath with 'sloten'= canals on either side, photo above.

I think these are hare tracks

the golf course path ends, one crosses a small road and the walk continues into the woods, on the right; to the left a farmer's fields and yet another 'sloot'. You can see all sorts of tracks in the snow: roe deer, humans, dogs, rabbits and hares, various birds


Tungsten LOVES snow






we met two other people in the woods, with cameras; no other dogs, a pheasant flew up, other than the tracks, very little evidence of animal life

I've been meaning to come back here because I like the way you see the world and how your art sings to me. It was so good to hear that your husband's eye surgery went well; heart skipped a beat when I read of all that has gone on since I last visited. Continued blessings to him, to you, your boys. May you enjoy the quiet joys that are the gifts of the coming Winter Solstice.

Hello Saskia
I found you through jude and grace. I posted a link just now to this page in a comment on jude's blog because her dyed cloth Footsteps Across the Moon reminded me of one of your photos and realise that I should have asked you first. I hope you don't mind. Love your photos.
