December has arrived, bitter and cold but full of monochrome splendour around here.

There is beauty in all the sepia. It makes you look closer and see the small details and textures.

And there, lurking in all the browns and greys are sudden, unexpected pops of colour.

And always the half frozen hues of winter sunsets  that look all the more lovely for the lack of colour elsewhere.

I like these early days of winter, the beginning of Advent, the anticipation, the new season. Happy December days to you. xx
