Regardless of the weather or whatever else is going on in my life, the sight of an empty road stretching into the distance always brings me cheer. Especially in the countryside – the photo above was taken just north of York, UK where I live. The road leads off and in the distance you can just about make out some local ruins of a castle in a village nearby.
I love the country that I live in. I am especially proud of Yorkshire but it’s all beautiful in it’s own way and at various times of the year. These pictures really bring out what is so wonderful about winter for me, crispness, crunch, quiet, mist, all evocative words for an evocative season.
