Winter Colours

We ventured out for a walk today along the Trent and Mersey Canal. It was one of those days when the frost seems to have cleaned and cleared the air leaving clear blue sky with deep rich colours below.

The shadow areas were cold and the ground in these areas was frozen solid with frost on the top. There was very little wind so we didn't feel the cold too much at first and we enjoyed the glorious views.

All too soon the light started to fade as the lowering sun produced more shadows and the cold in the air felt sharper in our throats. We made our way to the River Dane and along the Croxton Trail back into Middlewich just in time for the last of the sun. Just the right time to head home, for tea and crumpets too.
