Silent sentinels at sunset

Just popping in to say hello and to share this glorious view

Of frozen birch trees in a glowing winter sunset.

(It was about minus 16 C.)

Life is still very busy with house unpacking stuff so I apologize in advance for not getting round to your blogs.

  1. A gorgeous capture as always!! I do love the sunlight filtering through the bare trees!! Thank you, as always, for sharing the beauty!! I hope you have a lovely weekend!! Stay warm!!


  2. D’em sentinels be everywhere. Though yours seem to have their hair down, where mine have their dandruff up. Yours a mystical fairy tale, mine nothing short of Billy Goat’s Gruff.

    And yes, Elvira is looking and feeling “maaaaaarvelous” to quote Billy Crystal. Thank you for asking and your concern. She was full of two year old enthusiasm this morning, wishfully thinking she could fly in chase of a small flock of Mallards we startled from their breakfasting pond. She remains grounded, snoring beside me now with one eye open just in case I make a move for the door.


  3. What a GLORIOUS image, Fiona! And me, being a winter lover (the cold and snow), this picture especially touched my soul.

    The best to you in your continued unpacking and getting settled in to your new home!

    Have a super weekend, my friend!


  4. I can imagine how busy you are, I still have some boxes to unpack in our garage from our move. Glad you got a chance to enjoy the beautiful sunset.


  5. Beautiful! I’ve spent 2 months in Sweden in a cottage by a lake as research for an upcoming illustration projects. I still miss this place every day. Can’t wait to visit it again and see it covered in snow and ice.


  6. buongiorno LadyF amo moltissimo le betulle, ne ho un gruppo anche nel mio giardino, certo che non sono la stessa cosa che vederle nel loro ambiente natutale con la neve!
    Ti ringrazio moltissimo per gli auguri di buon anno, che ricambio con tutto il cuore augurandoti ogni bene.Scusa il ritardo ma ero in vacanza e avevo il Pc fuori uso
    un caro saluto
