Goosebumps & textures at the lake

My daughter is wild – a wild water swimmer and so a New year’s day dip in the lake was just up her street. For me it meant a walkabout and the chance to savour some twig and branch textures in wintry display – without frosting and under a low lit morning sky.

this year’s (male) hazel flowers

Dedicated to Catherine who has done so much to help me through the tangle of decisions I am having to make.


  1. Oh how my soul longs to be a wild water swimmer. And oh how my flesh shudders top to toe at the thought of actually doing it. I know one wild water swimmer who becomes utterly euphoric after a dip in the Shropshire hills’ natural reservoirs. These are very atmospheric scenes, Laura.


  2. Nice. I think black and white is perfect for winter images reflecting the dark days but showing a glimmer of hope for the days to come with the hazel flowers.
