Sunday 10th to Saturday 16th December 2017
On Sunday Teddy and I walked on Canford Heath. It was dull and miserable, so I didn’t take the camera. I did take this photo of Teddy resting after his walk when we got home though.
He’s a funny dog. Amongst other things he has a strange idea about what makes a good pillow.
Tuesday was cold and icy, and I took the better camera when we walked on Canford Heath. As we walked past the scuzzy pond near the Gravel Hill entrance I was taken by the sunlight on the trees and ice.
Here’s Teddy backlit by the sun.
And a colour photo of the trees that I shared last week in black and white.
And a different black and white one of them.
Out on the heath the puddles were frozen solid in pretty patterns.
We walked across the heath in front of the old pit, and then into the woods on the other side, where I loved the effect of the sunlight through the trees.
In the trees there was a huge birch bracket fungus. Although I took a photo of it last week, this one is better.
We turned back across the heath where I took this photo of Teddy by one of the frozen puddles.
He was having a lot of trouble with that ice. He’s race off and then hit a frozen puddle and legs would go in all directions. And either playing on the ice or playing with dogs earlier he managed to cut his back leg. It has taken ages to heal as he kept opening it up, but is just about better now.
On Saturday we went over to Upton Heath as normal. It was still very cold but the skies were good again.
And so we head towards the Winter Solstice and Christmas.
