Spotted these posts today while walking down the lane to the shop. Every now and then a shower of snow would fall from a branch in the sun light like fairy dust. You had to see it, but it looked quite magical.
I stood there for some time watching and clicking away with the camera . I got this shot and a man and his family came by. We chatted and I explained what it was I was trying to capture. He offered to walk down to the second tree and give it a shake to help me out. What I didn’t think about was the tree I was standing under was loaded with snow and of course as soon as he started shaking the tree I got completely covered . We had a good laugh and I thanked him for his help’.
I learned a lesson , never try to rush nature just let it do its thing in its own time.

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Great shot and a funny story!….guess this means no more new mushroom finds for awhile :-)

  • I think I would need a mushroom detector Rusty. Still have a few shots left to post from the season. Had enough of this snow and winter has just started. Many thanks.

    The view is GORGEOUS! Mark from where I sit, just happy I don’t have to shovel my way out. Love the way the sunlight is filtering through the mist of snow…Jules

  • Thanks Jules, over night rain has turned everything to mush so no need to do more shovelling . I will let nature do the work.
