Wintry Morn

Winter Sunrise

 

Winter Morn

The cool colours of

A Winter Morn

Seen through dark branches

Barren and shorn

.

The crisp cold air and

A weaker sun

Remind you winter

Is not yet done*

.

 

This is about the only winter scenery I get to see, as most of my garden – and everyone else’s – is Evergreen.

Here you see dawn, as the sun rises through theΒ bare branches of a neighbour’s tree; the pinky-purple sky courtesy of a few clouds.

 

*Not yet done. This is an Americanism. My younger daughter used to say it sometimes as a teenager. In English you would tend to say something is not yet over, or finished.

But, you know, it rhymes so nicely with sun!

    You would never know you took this somewhere with such a warm winter. Nice shot! (And “not yet finished” sounds so prim and proper to me – I never would have known “not yet done” is an Americanism, but now that I think about it, it definitely is (and is definitely what I would say).)

      It is odd, but it does Feel cold – compared to summer temps anyway.
      I never heard “Not yet Done” all my years in UK, tho they probably say it now – there is a lot of US TV out there (and here)! πŸ™‚
