The calm after the storm

After being kept off the Moor for a few days by the weather it was good to be out again today.  The trees always make great silhouettes against the snow:

Mine were the first human footprints down in Barbrook Plantation for days but others had been here before me:

eRed deer tracks everywhere as they had been here sheltering from the snow.

You could see where they had crossed the stream:

fThis is always a quiet place but even more so today.  Not a birdsong to be heard.

jHowever the stream had its own magic:

kIcicles everywhere:


Back up into the wood and the shadows were lengthening:



And below the track the snowdrifts were starting to curl;

oAll in all a good trip out but the occasional deer or even a blackbird would have been good!
