Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Hard Day’s Night

Hard days night 

Dusk was falling as I drove home from work, the light really was this strange shade of  blue, like annealed steel, a cold sort of blue.

Hard days night 3

the farmer had just been out to feed the sheep, the crows scavenged, the ground is too frozen to leaver out juicy worms.

Hard days night 2

The main roads are gritted, and free flowing, minor roads and exposed routes need treating with respect.

Cold overnight; snow, blizzard conditions forecast for tomorrow night.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Looks very bleak and wintry!
    Take care and stay warm! xx

  2. Fantastic atmosphere! Great captures, the last one is my fav!

  3. The colours are amazing. It’s my first winter in Derbyshire and it’s not disappointing. But then I haven’t been caught out on icy roads or blizzard conditions yet.

  4. All wonderful captures. Looks very, very cold, but it seems the sheep can take it with their nice wool coats. :)

  5. I love the “blue hour” any time of year, but it’s especially poignant in winter. And by the creaking of my bones, it is winter, never mind three weeks to go to Solstice!

  6. Always worth of celebration in my book!
