Back in the darker January days when frost dusted everything with magic, Miss E and I went walking with our cameras. Version 2Miss E was given a camera for Christmas and she was keen to get some frosty shots. We went to Thorncombe Woods and headed for the pond.

Joining in with Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Challenge, prompt words:



Do you recognise the bobble hat? – I made one for each grandchild last year, but trying to get a decent photo of all of them was like herding cats


Cute though!

I’ll be away from the computer for a couple of weeks. Cathy will be holding the Photo fort over at Nanacathy, leave a link on her One-a-Week Photo Challenge posts and I will include them in the April Round-Up. Thank you Cathy and as Cathy says:

“Happy Snapping”

  2. Love the idea of children getting in touch with nature using the eye of a camera. It can teach many things and empower. ❀
