Soltice sun

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year and also the Vol-in-Law's birthday. As we did last year, we took a walk in the deer park.

It was very cold and the lake was frozen over

And the pond was frozen over, too. And we learned that ducks either can't read or just think that it won't happen to them.

So it's one rule for ducks?

Hi, as an occasional visitor to your site, can I say that I really liked that first photo and I've put it on my desk top!

Unfortunately the sun looks a bit egg shaped but I'll sort it out...

Happy New Year.

My favorite is the third of the ducks...

thanks! The first one is tweaked a little bit, including some special attention to the sun - so that might be why you're getting a bit of distortion. I have a new camera - and it didn't quite capture what things really looked like, so I messed with it...
