Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #229 – Perfect Patterns
It’s been cold here all week so going with some wintery patterns for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
Special thanks to Ann-Christine for this week’s LAPC – Perfect Patterns
Happy Winter Solstice
Finally, we have reached the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. At least things will start going the right direction now. Some serene images to celebrate. Happy Solstice to everyone and special thanks to our Lens Artists host for providing some great challenges throughout 2021 including this one.
Celebrating Nature in December
Even in winter we can find much to celebrate in nature. Our friendly robin greets us each morning looking for breakfast.
And many other garden birds can be seen at the feeders, or queuing up for them.
Most of the leaves have fallen now but even on the ground they still look beautiful.
Some trees, though striped of leaves, are covered in interesting lichens and colourful berries.
While many greens are gone others can be found – like this very healthy and vibrant moss.
Grasses and reeds, while brown, still have interesting seed heads
And on those calm bright winter days we can still enjoy that lovely winter light – even if its length is very short.
Winter too is a time of reflection, for remembering those gone before us, and thinking of those left behind.

Coal tit in winter.
Wishing you all a Happy Winter Solstice. It was a grey day here today – so a photograph from the west coast from earlier in this week.
Lens artist photo challenge – Cold
We have had a few cold frost mornings the last few weeks. The one advantage of a frosty morning is usually a bright start to the day.
Of course there is noting more magical than snow, we haven’t had any yet this winter.
We don’t get it very often here on the west coast of Ireland but we love it when we do.
