And then the sun came out

Today we woke up and the sun was shining, I don't think there is a weather combination that beats  sunshine and snow, today is the sort of day which makes you feel glad to be alive, and makes me realise how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful spot, sometimes it is really easy to take the kind of views we have for granted as we see them every day.

I have taken some pictures of the same views at different times and it never ceases to amaze me how the light can completely change the same view. It reminds me of Cezanne who painted many pictures of Mont Sainte Victoire in Provence always capturing it in different lights.

So this post is more snowy scenes of our garden with the Pyrenees as a backdrop, village and surrounding countryside, this time the sun is shining.

The view, we woke up to, this morning

The same view at dusk

Our lane with the Chateau at the top, complete with scaffolding they are repointing and replacing the battlements.

The garden robin, who won't go hungry in the cold

Crusoe, enjoying himself in the snow!

A view of the village, from the Chateau

The village church, sadly, hardly ever used, but available for weddings!
