From that bike ride

black and white image of bike in meadow

I stopped and took quite a few pictures on that bike ride. This one is black and white because I accidentally swivelled a knob. But I liked it anyway; it quite catches the feel of the morning, which was both foggy and frosty.

Winter light

The light of a winter sun is one of my favourite things. So have some beauty to share.

I was quite taken with the fuzzy otherworldliness of these. I think I like the first one best, but the second one reminds me of sand shaped by waves.
