This sunset added a little warmth to an otherwise chilly 35deg. evening!

Thanks for your visit and comments I appreciate that very much

a small reminder what winter looks like and that even if we have hot December, it can still happen! .-)

Fading misty light up on the heath, love the light at this time of year when the sun isn't too hidden.


This is completely unedited, as it was taken with these camera settings - unusual for me!

Last rays of sunlight filtering through the undergrowth up on the heath.

Taken last week at Little Common Stanmore with my new phone (Xmas present from Hubby)

A beautiful January snowfall invited me out to a local park, showered me with soft flakes and then nearly froze off my fingers! So worth it…..

I hope, you all had a good start to the New Year :-)


Der Januar


Das Jahr ist klein und liegt noch in der Wiege.

Der Weihnachtsmann ging heim in seinen Wald.

Doch riecht es noch nach Krapfen auf der Stiege.

Das Jahr ist klein und liegt noch in der Wiege.

Man steht am Fenster und wird langsam alt.


Die Amseln frieren.

Und die Krähen darben.

Und auch der Mensch hat seine liebe Not.

Die leeren Felder sehnen sich nach Garben.

Die Welt ist schwarz und weiß und ohne Farben.

Und wär so gerne gelb und blau und rot.


Umringt von Kindern wie der Rattenfänger,

tanzt auf dem Eise stolz der Januar.

Der Bussard zieht die Kreise eng und enger.

Es heißt, die Tage würden wieder länger.

Man merkt es nicht. Und es ist trotzdem wahr.


Die Wolken bringen Schnee aus fremden Ländern.

Und niemand hält sie auf und fordert Zoll.

Silvester hörte man’s auf allen Sendern,

dass sich auch unterm Himmel manches ändern

und, außer uns, viel besser werden soll.


Das Jahr ist klein und liegt noch in der Wiege.

Und ist doch hunderttausend Jahre alt.

Es träumt von Frieden. Oder träumt’s vom Kriege?

Das Jahr ist klein und liegt noch in der Wiege.

Und stirbt in einem Jahr. Und das ist bald.

I apologize: there is no good translation in English.



A poem from a wonderful small book I love so much: the poetic cycle "The 13 months"by German Author Erich Kästner (23 February 1899 – 29 July 1974). It is his last poetry book.

Kästner was author, pacifist, poet, screenwriter and satirist, known primarily for his humorous, socially astute poems and for children's books including 'Emil and the Detectives'. He received the international Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1960 for his autobiograph' 'Als ich ein kleiner Junge war'. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times.

The asteroid 12318 'Kästner' is named after him :-)


Starting off 2020 with a look at an old barn, painted with the wintry tones of January.


It's still snowing.


Norewegian woods - the last Sunday of January. Went for a walk with my camera.
