Sounds of winter: day 12


A Winter’s Tale (David Essex). A haunting story of a failed romance set, in this version, against a backdrop of northern English countryside. Winter’s the time we snuggle round the fire and tell or read stories, isn’t it? This one is sad but evocative. I’m not quite sure where the pictures were taken but I think in the Yorkshire Dales, where I lived for a while. And to cheer you up after David’s angst, I’ve linked Dean Martin’s Walking in a Winter Wonderland in a video that includes the lyrics so you can sing along karaoke style.

The photograph is of a milestone in the Peak District (near where I live) in heavy snow. Not this year though the other day we had some snow showers and I believe the hills were white. We drove out to see the ‘winter wonderland’ but it must be difficult for anyone who has to trudge through it, like farmers.
