Along the Lane and Through the Forest

It was another beautiful day but the forecast was for snow later so I didn't want to venture too far from home and set off for a long walk from our gate along the lane with the dog. I hadn't quite realized just how icy it was but the views made up for it. Sometimes it's all too easy to forget how beautiful our surroundings are and walking always brings that home to me again. In the distance you see West Linton.
It was a relief though both for the dog and I to enter the forest as he could be freed from his lead which made photography a whole lot easier. The reflections in the part frozen streams were icily stunning.
 And like yesterday the sun just caught the top of the trees and lighted them up.
Spot the dog!
This shows how frozen it was. By the time we arrived back home it had just begun to cloud over and now it's a matter of wait and see regarding that snow forecast.

I've added another page to this blog too, showing some of my Journal Quilts which I have been making for the past 12 years now. Just click on the tab at the top of the blog.

What beautiful scenery! It must be lovely to be able to walk around and enjoy it in person!

You've inspired me to get out to Dawyk very soon. Your photos show the colours and textures beautifully.
