Water of Leith, Winter Wonderland

I love Colinton Dell at all times of the year, but it is magical in the snow.


There were lots of birds around today, including two tree creepers who were chasing each other from tree to tree, and flying right round me!

I was impressed by this little fungus growing on a dead tree, and I know the photo is slightly out of focus, but I thought it was worth sharing anyway

Pretty captures of your winter wonderland.. The Tree Creepers are always a treat to see. Love the colorful fungi, it really stands out against the snow. Have a happy day!

Lovely place. For some reason mushroom and fungus pictures always foil me photographically. I just seem to fail to get the depth of field right, I guess.

thanks Eileen, yes I always love seeing treecreepers

Sarala, depth of field can be a challenge (and obviously was in the fungi photo in this post!)

Gingi - we don't get huge amounts of snow here...

Hi Juliet!
I was just thinking as I read your post, that we don't call little valleys dells like you do over there. Now I know what to call the little dell just off my side yard -a dell!
And I also understand the lyrics to The Farmer in the Dell now! LOL!

Send the snow - even our mountains are very short of snow.
