So nice and wonderful to get a little bit of sunlight on my face and see some blue skies. There is still some snow left on the fields but it has that hard and icy surface on it. The kids were still able to have some fun in it.
Even if we have lived here for a while with the close proximity to the park I haven't had time to explore all of the park in detail. I spend my Sunday afternoon doing what I love the most, walking around with my camera exploring.
It was one of those beautiful winter days when all of nature is covered in a thin layer of delicate frost. Every branch and twig dressed in frosty ice crystals.
Quite a few people were out skating on the lake as well. The ice seemed perfect, clean and hard without any snow on it. As most of the snow melted away after Christmas I was surprised to realize that the ice on the lakes is still strong enough for skating. I love that special sound that the ice makes as you skate over it. As I stood here looking out over the water I heard that sound in the air.
January is a month of soft colors, not the bright colors you get during spring, summer of fall. A palette of white, grey and soft blue.
An abandoned and lonely midsummer pole left in the snow. Looks odd and very much out of place as it also is.
My camera battery died halfway into my walk so I had to return home and get a new one. I headed out again as I did not feel ready with my walk. Wanted to take the opportunity to enjoy that last daylight. The time of day when you get the best light for pictures.
I took another route and found some new paths I had never walked on before. Actually I discovered a whole new way to get to the park from where we live. I love to explore and discover new paths and trails. This path a long the shore line should be very pretty in spring and summer. I should go for a run here if I get the opportunity.
Passed the butterfly museum at Haga. Dusk was approaching and the street lights were lit.
