It is approaching that time of year when the weather turns cold and the sun goes AWOL until springtime. Indeed, the cold mornings are already here and it surely won’t be long until the snow and ice move in to join them.
Beauty & Joy
Thankfully, there are times when a wintry scene can actually provide episodes of divine beauty and joy. Times when a fleeting blast of early morning sunshine across a frosty landscape is an absolute pleasure to behold, especially if you’re in a rural setting. Indeed, out in the countryside, the rolling hills and spire-like forests can look absolutely stunning under a layer of icy frost or virgin snow; so, if you get the opportunity to spend a few hours out and about in the country on a winter’s day, you really should seize the chance.
Taking a pair of binoculars out with you will enable you to see even more of all the delights that a rural wintry scene has to offer. Certainly, a good pair of bird watching binoculars will allow you to not only examine the landscape in much greater detail; they will also enable you to catch a glimpse of the wildlife that comes out to play at this time of year. For example, a pair of bird watching binoculars could enable you to see a robin red-breast going about his day; and there really are few things as festive as that.
