Here are a few photos on my way home after the weekly flute lesson. I took OH’s 4×4 eggbox-on-an-elastic-band, or Fiat Panda 4×4 as it is known.
IT IS NOT A LAND ROVER DEFENDER!
(I may never get over my loss)
Anyway, I was blown away by the views – the snow coming in over Weisdale Voe.
Grass Water, looking north west, totally solid – I had a very brief urge to go skating until I remembered I hate skating.
A panoramic view of Grass Water and Hulma Water.
The sea at the Bridge of Walls was nearly completey frozen over.
There was only a thin stream of water from the current.
Where the sea stops, the ice starts.
It was hypnotising and very eerie.
The bladderwrack seaweed (Fucus vesiculosus) and the ice are not something I see together much.
Tonight’s sunset was pink and it made everything pink as well, reflecting off the snow.
So, with this incredible backdrop, I fed and watered all the animals. Les Grandes Dames were fed up of being in the field and barged past me, totally ignored Taktur who was screaming at them to come and “talk”. They ran into their stable, complained about the quality of the hay and demanded a new bale was opened. I did as I was told – they were both on the warpath.
It will all go soon. The weather is going to warm up.
