It is winter. And as the saying goes – ‘As the days get longer, the cold gets stronger’
A series of freezing nights, temperatures as low as – 8 have frozen over the ponds nearby, making a rare playground for skaters, ice hockey and all those who cannot resist the thrill and call of this new territory.
I have started a small dedicated sketch book to fill with images from the extraordinary spectacle. At the weekend there was a festival feel, families coming to experience walking on ice, watching skaters and chatting over the madness or sanity of it all.
This too will pass…
I wonder if I will see the like again, and get more images in my wee book.
