In winter






Winter has set in here in Foxglove Lane. How beautiful, how sad. A time to reflect, pause and hibernate. Out there, the pace is slowing down. Inside, the candles are lit and the wood is in. All is quiet. Sometimes it is hard to imagine that there is anything left to snap out there in a bleak grey December. I give up, I retreat. Then one day I wake up, to life, to the light, and to a new sparkly winter's day.

This chilly, dreamy slideshow was inspired by the haunting music of artist Kate Glavey. I don't know a lot about how her new album came to be. I just know that Kate is a committed and creative individual who is constantly developing her work. I found her beautiful album to be surprisingly raw and emotionally charged. It immediately hooked me.

In winter, by Burrows can be accessed on www.burrowsinwinter.bandcamp.com. Take a dander over there to sample more, I came away with a couple of special Christmas gifts.

  1. Breathtaking. Your photography is always outstanding but this takes it to a new level. The little English robin was the perfect ending - the symbol of Christmas to me in the same way the cardinal is in the USA. I miss my little, fluffy robins!
