Short days, long nights
We are ten days until the longest night of the year. There are less than nine hours of daylight and the sun is lower on the horizon. I can feel my body slowing down but we keep trudging on! I normally am very quiet in the winter but I am trying to get outside for a walk to make sure I don’t get cabin fever. Everything is covered in a bit of snow and more is expected by the weekend. The light is very diffuse and great for photography but there is lots of blue in my photos. Not a problem that some quick edits can’t fix.
Corylus cornuta – Beaked hazel
Typha latifolia – Cattails
Deer visitors to my little wooded corner. Amazingly, I have only ever seen a pair in the 3+ years here. Turkeys are another matter. Hopefully, they will make an appearance this Winter.
