Full moon frost

It’s moving chaos here – but I just wanted to share some photos I took with my mobile phone when I was out on a gorgeous early morning walk just after Christmas. And yes – I was kicking myself for not taking my big camera with me…

Asย Ruby is at the breeders with her new puppies, we agreed to dogsit a friend’s dog (Ruby’s puppy from last year!) over Christmas and New Year.

We walked through a magical landscape

Of hoar frost and pink skies. It was – 14 C.

The full moon was just setting in the early morning

As the dogs played and zoomed in the snowy fields.

Our dog, Simson, loves the snow – who doesn’t?

I think he looks adorable in his snow beard.

I won’t be able to respond to your comments, but I do wish you allย a new year filled with good things – and hope we can all pull together to make the world a kinder place.

    Obviously, the size of the camera is not as important as the insight behind the lens. You captured emotion, colour and light with a Who size digital eye (Dr Zeuss-like).
