Winterlude



The photos I’m sharing were taken by my daughter Jackie McShannon who has been published in the Huffington Post. They capture the beauty of Winter, the magnificence of Nature…




Each one in itself brings awareness to the fine details of feathers and  the vivid colours that are shared amongst the birds.





Even the solitude of the gentle flowing water can be breathtaking.




We are so fortunate to live amidst such glory...

  2. Lovely pictures and hoping you are finding some peace and joy surrounding you and yours. The kittens home yet? Hoping Maddy is weathering the winter as well as possible too. Hugs and pets all around in abundance!

  3. Exceptionally lively images, Susan. I particularly like the quizzical wee bird with its head cooked.

  14. Dearest Susan, your words were the first I read and I was SO cheered up by them. It has been a difficult few weeks not just with my health but with the upheaval of politics as you mentioned. I think a huge number of folk woke up the morning after the referendum convinced that nothing would have changed, so it's been a shock all round. Lord alone knows where we'll be this time next year, but what can you do..except cross everything and hope for the best. :)
    I do wish I lived where you are it looks so beautiful and seems to be as you said, a little removed from all the 'flam-flam'!
    Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write Susan I value your words immensly!

    Hugs to you,
    Jane xx
