Welcome to another Thursday Doors post, this one is all about winter. I love the crisp, cold days we get here at this time of year. We probably have less rain during this season than we do in summertime. Irish summers have a watery reputation. In winter, the weather and temperature can change a lot as you travel north to south, even in such a small country as this. Usually it gets warmer but on this particular journey it got much colder. We headed south this day with blue skies and sunshine.
But within an hour the temperature had dropped by four degrees and this is what it looked like:
Icy roads and white fields. The odd door didn’t escape my notice, either.
Remember, we’re traveling south. It usually gets a wee bit warmer when we head in that direction. In the freezing fog and greyness, the trees seemed to take on a life of their own.
Even without their leaves, they can be majestic and beautiful. Entertaining, too. Does anyone else see a couple of human shapes in the next shot? Or even a gorilla?
Now you know just how far my imagination can stretch. I managed to get a clearish shot of two old headstones, right on the edge of the road, as we drove by. It wasn’t a safe place to stop so I couldn’t get a good look at the inscriptions.
I’m pretty sure they’re headstones but there wasn’t a graveyard in sight.
By the time we arrived home it was almost dark and it felt like we had travelled three hours north, instead of south. Thanks for dropping in on this chilly Thursday Doors post, Norm has lots more over on his blog.
