It snowed a bit a few days ago, and it’s been steadily below zero, so the snow hasn’t melted. Normally this would mean great excitement for me, and I’d be out there crawling around taking closeup pictures of Stuff In Snow. But one disadvantage of a broken foot and crutches is that it pretty well eliminates most crawling around. Getting down wouldn’t be hard, but getting back up again could be a bit more problematic. And I don’t fancy crawling across a cold, snowy and rather wet yard. So instead I’m taking shots from a standing position—well, let’s call it an aggressive but well-propped lean.
