It's cold outside

By BillRookery
Taken this morning just before sun-up on a cold and frosty misty start to the day
I posted some images the other day of this bench of autumn time when the leaves were starting to fall, this is the winter image

Next time you find yourself complaining about granny's festive Brussel sprouts, spare a thought for the poor tykes in Greenland.

Each Christmas, they have to tuck into mattak – raw whale skin with a little blubber – and kiviak, which is made by wrapping an auk (a small arctic bird) in seal skin, burying it for several months and eating its decomposed flesh

Very graphic description, Bill, fortunately I love sprouts, did them with chestnuts and diced bacon yesterday, very seasonal grub 🙂 Good image here to make up the ‘Four Seasons’ bench. Will opt for the summer one please.

A lovely scene, Bill, works well in colour and mono, but for the subtle colours, the lead is my fave 😃👍
Think I'll give Greenland a miss for a Christmas holiday when this nasty virus goes away 🤮

A nice bench to rest on and contemplate the view, even in winter! Colour works best for me as the light is too soft to give contrast in b&w.

Colour makes the picture, Bill - but couldn't you waited until some person came to sit on the bench?

Have a good Christmas.

The color Bill. That food sounds just awful....

Not to mention killing whales.
