Longing for Spring by KeldBach Longing for Spring by KeldBach
Stumbled upon this old shot and thought it was worth posting. A twig of a Willow tree (Salix capréa) with its fuzzy catkins (actually tiny flowers), captured in the golden evening light.

Wow, that sounds like Spring. Not much Winter here yet, only a little frost at night sometimes. Hopefully, we'll get some snow in January :)

We haven't even seen a frost yet, and the Land really needs a good freeze up,
to break up the compacted soil, and to kill off all the invasive bugs, fungi & diseases.
In fact, we haven't had a good hard Winter for over 10 years.

I'm much more concerned about the drastic loss of water birds we're experiencing over here. Most of the wonderful species I used to shoot 8-10 years ago, have completely vanished. Only a few Mallards remain plus of course the inevitable Gulls. If you take a look at my Birds in Nature gallery, you'll know what I mean. They were all shot in my local area. Biologists tell us it's due to massive chemical pollution from the surrounding farm lands, but the politicians don't seem to care a bit. That's really a shame.

Glad you like it, Cecily. And yes, Spring is certainly far away still, but in the meantime I wouldn't mind a little snow and frost. It use to inspire me to go out and take some landscape shots :)

Happy Winter Solstice, Cecily, and wishing you some pleasant holidays too, if you celebrate at all :hug:
