A touch of frost

broken ice
We are having a bit of frost now, it seems that Winter has finally arrived. Nature is all confused, because some flowers and trees have already started budding. It was way too warm for the time of year.

But now it seems that temperatures have arrived to normal which is below freezing point at night. I quite enjoy a cold afternoon at the park, so I got out a last Sunday with my camera for a crisp walk.

 It was rather crowded in the park, apparently we all had the same idea.

These four sticks on the ice gave me a feeling of spaciousness.

And I just love the colour of yellow reflected in the ice. It was a wonderful afternoon at the park.
