It’s not just the light that I like about this photo but the fact that Freya is off and running into the woods with no fear – she’s so at home in nature, it makes my heart happy.

Last Sunday was another freezing day but we decided to blow the cobwebs away with a morning walk at Whitlingham Country Park, just outside Norwich. We went into the woods first before visiting the broad, which was mostly frozen with only the smallest gap for the birds.

Freya was all for ice-skating but, with the help of a thawing puddle, I was able to demonstrate why that wasn’t a good idea.



Here’s one of Mark in the woods that I had a play with using the free Fotor editor. It didn’t really need it but it was fun to tinker.


I’ve enjoyed being out in the cold but I’d be quite happy for it to warm up now.
