Snapshot Saturday: a wintry walk

North Yorkshire, Walking, WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, Yorkshire Dales

For the last WordPress Photo Challenge of the year, we’ve been bidden to come up with our favourite shot of 2017.  How to choose?

I was thinking of maybe reviewing the year, one month at a time: family moments, walks in the Dales, trips to Poland, Germany, France and Spain.  Nope, it wasn’t working .

The shot that I found kept presenting itself was this one, taken on a chilly walk not so far from here almost a year ago.  It chimes in with my somewhat gloomy feelings about the future: political uncertainty here, in Catalonia, in America, to name just three.

Not all was gloom though.  Look!  We were walking with friends.  And in the end, the sun came out, and we were able to turn our backs on the damp unfriendly fog.

If only politics were so simple.  Happy Christmas everyone.

  1. I do love that tree photo and I really like susanpoozan’s interpretation! The photo of the sheep makes me think of too many people following one particular American politician . . . Happy holidays, Margaret–may 2018 be fog and gloom and sheep-free!

  2. Oh, Kerry, I can’t think what you mean 😉 ! However, real sheep are welcome enough – what would you in particular do without them? It’s the human kind in the UK and America I can’t be doing with. Happy Christmas, and all good wishes for 2018.

  3. Gorgeous photos, and I quite like the gloominess of them. The world is scary and the politics are very frustrating, so I am focusing instead on the little things and my immediate surroundings, which fortunately for me is filled with things I love. Sending you happy thoughts and warmest wishes. K xx

    1. And to you too! You’re right of course: this is good advice which I should take as the world is making me miserable, to no purpose. Happy New Year! xx

      1. Yes, we had a very quiet Christmas as well and Alice, my eldest daughter wasn’t with us for the first time ever, so Elinor was a bit wistful. Otherwise, a good Christmas! Happy New Year to you and yours!
