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: l 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! q
