Afternoon in Winter

Sliding

Photos: December 25, 2016

The temperature has created rather icy conditions - enough for fast sledding. A number of children were taking advantage of the hills to enjoy the swift downhill descent. Climbing up was more of a challenge as boots tried to grip the slippery surface.

Out Cavorting

A number of squirrels were out cavorting. They seemed to find food in the crusty snow.

Finding Food in the Snow

They have little fear of humans as they stayed nearby in case we carried food for them. The rules say - no feeding the animals, but I am sure some people ignore that.

Low Sun

I love the light in the afternoon, low on the horizon. It outlined these trees...

Dry Grasses

and made these grasses glow.
