Driving around East Lothian today it was a winter wonderland of fresh white snow. Towards sunset the snow started to fall again and I sheltered for a while in a woodland, hoping the setting sun might emerge. Sound was muffled by the snow so everything fell silent and still. No sounds of bird song, the wee critters no doubt sheltering and saving their energy for the long night ahead. With no sounds and in such stillness, it seemed possible - the rest of the world had slipped away elsewhere.
I was brought up to hold a deep appreciation for the beauty of the natural environment: a coloured sky at sunset, the music of bird song, the sounds of the sea breaking on the shore. These things inspire me 365 and 'IF' my photos and comments inspire another then, I am pleased to share with them my small place here in cyberspace, my personal philosophy in life being to: SMILE :-D and pass it on!
