December, Christmas Day

December has been mostly overcast and damp but as soon as the Solstice passed, a song thrush took to singing in a tall ash tree and a nuthatch has been sending shivering calls around and about the house. From out in front of the house I have taken some photos showing the wide range of winter light:- late afternoon snow, early morning mist and late afternoon sunset. As ever I have tried to make as many christmas cards as I could and some were failures. Here are three, the Salted Fish, the Bat and the Moth all consuming pints of glitter glue.
