Winter Barrens


The red, white, and blue of this expanse of snow driven blueberry barren caught my eye this afternoon.


I didn’t have my camera with me, but then I remembered my iPhone so I made a u-turn in the middle of the road to go back and snap these pictures. It’s a good thing I was on my own. I drive Paul and Hannah to distraction with my spur of the moment photo stops!

    Really beautiful. I’m always slamming on the brakes to try and capture the view and I only have an iphone. Sometimes I have to pull over because the clouds are too good to miss. Wishing we’d had snow here on the North York Moors instead of endless rain! Kim x
