Hidden gems

One of my walks takes me past fields, lake and a camping site.

I discovered this shower, with the last summer drop

Frozen into place.

Forging into the woods,

I find a truck with shiny rims.

The sunlight picks out

The red ofย a hidden cottage

And draws my eyes to this

Picture perfect barn.

  10. Hi, Isn’t it amazing how much ‘hidden’ beauty there is all around us… The sad truth is that most of us don’t take time to LOOK. I loved seeing the old truck with the shiny rims!!!!

    Fiona, hidden gems indeed! Love the all! Especially that first one of the shower and how your captured the ice. And the second one of the truck is gorgeous. I love how everything is outlined in white, icy snow!

    Thanks so much for sharing the beauty of winter, my friend. Have a lovely week!
