Cold And Windy
The clouds move in and take away any of the sun's warmth. Wind penetrates all of your layers and to maintain warmth you must keep moving on. A steep hill offers a challenge and once at the top one needs to open a layer, perhaps even take off gloves or hat, and enjoy the view around and below. Snow begins to fall, but only for a short moment and the sun returns. Colors absorb the warmth and the area changes a bit, just enough to catch your interest toward a new photo. It may not be there when you return, or may be totally different when viewed from another angle. Ascending the hill was one challenge and now descending may put one on all fours going backwards so as not to slide and tumble. Little dogs are running around you in circles, finding hidden scents and treasures on their own to investigate. Sometimes when I crouch down for a shot I am met with a lick or just a barrier to get a clear shot as they join me on my hunt for that perfect picture. The pond down below gazes back at us with its cold icy eyes.
Those first tracks in the snow show a path a fox took that crosses my own.
