Another icy sunset

For a few days now, it has been above freezing point and the town has turned from white to grey. Before bidding farewell to the peak of winter, I have one more icy sunset to show.






The swans had travelled on. We watched the sky and the ice-covered sea turn pink, not only where the sun was setting but in the other directions as well. 





Since then, the weather seems to have turned towards spring but I can’t believe the change would be permanent yet. We’ll just have to wait and see.

  1. I particularly like the third to last photo with the reeds. What a wonderful part of the world you live in. I wonder if we will have another cold snap. It has been so mild in Jersey again, but grey and dismal. Hope you have a good week. Barbara X

    1. I do love our contrasting seasons. The cold winter makes the sweetness of summer feel even sweeter to us. I just looked out of the window and the courtyard is white again, at least until tomorrow.

    1. Thanks, Rosemary. Now that we live close to the sea I find myself falling for it deeper and deeper.

    1. Every once in a while we've had a sunny cold day like this. Most of the time our winter is just grey I'm afraid.

  4. I share your feeling about the sea the more you see it the more you love it! Those colours are fantastic I have looked at your images several times and have enjoyed them so much.

    1. Thank you, Sarah. I come from the plains in the western part of the country where even lakes are not that common so I have quite surprised myself.
