Winter Sunshine….well just a little


Early Morning at Allestree Lake….

It made a welcome change after the recent spell of dark damp days to catch a glimpse of that elusive sun. Indeed it was just a glimpse but enough to cast a brighter light of what had become a very uninspiring landscape.

There was a morning mist across the Ash meadows and along the side of the woods,  as the sun climbed so did the thermometer and away went the mist.

By the time we reached the lake the day started to fill with promise….


In truth the morning never did seem settled, colours subdued and no warmth in the air. By lunch time normal service had been resumed with dark skies and a damp feel to the breeze

At least we know that the sun is still up there….somewhere, biding its time!

  1. You are lucky to live in such a great environment. Yesterday it was a very, very cold wind and today it started cold but an hour later it was much better. And tomorrow they promise double figures: 11 – 13 degrees. I wish I could send some over to you. 🙂

  2. Looking at the reflections of the sky in the lakes, it seems you have a rather clear sky?
    So why ‘little’? Does it perhaps have something to do with the forthcoming ‘Brexit’? 🙂
