I find it amazing how a blast of sunshine can make everything feel warm.
It was late morning after a freezing overnight and early morning but the front had gone and the sun was fighting back. It was, however, still bitterly cold.
I had spotted this lone tree beside the lake (probably pond is a better description) and had had a bit of a battle to get to it. I had climbed over a gate and slithered under a barbed wire fence, all of which was a bit difficult with one “compromised” leg.
But the time it took was worth is because the sun found a gap in the clouds to transform a fairly ordinary scene into a warm colourful wonderland
