Winter brew

Winter brew at Branton Lakes

Yes, winter’s brewing! Well, the meteorological winter, anyway. It began on 1 December 2017 and it’ll end on 28 February 2018. Of course, if you have a preference for the astronomical seasons, then winter won’t begin until 21 December 2017 and won’t ends until 20 March 2018. Mmm…choices, choices!

Anyway, whatever the season, “the weather outside is frightful!” Things can be relatively calm one moment and then, quite suddenly, a storm’s brewing. Just what happened on my walk around the lakes at Branton Nature Conservation Area yesterday. Mind you, it rendered some wonderful, brooding colours:

Just look at that sky!

I guess you’ve got to be fairly hardy to live in north Northumberland in winter…but, boy is it worth it!!
