Boxing Day Beauty

It’s traditional for us to go for a walk on Boxing Day (26th December for non Brits) and in the coldest December snows in living memory there are some wonderful sights.

Outside the door ice crystals form on piles of snow.

Roseberry Topping stands out well against the azure sky as the sun shines brightly on the hill.

“I live not in myself, but I become
Portion of that around me: and to me
High mountains are a feeling, but the hum
of human cities torture.”

Byron – Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage


Later in the afternoon in Guisborough Woods, the setting sun brings great colour to the skies and these are reflected in the snows.

Caught against the pink tinged field is one of summer’s Hogweeds, now collecting snow.

The waterfall in the woods has frozen.

Returning back home, the cloud cover adorning Highcliff Nab slowly disperses,

but the snows remain.
