An early morning walk in the village, along icy streets and past scenes that belong in monochrome episodes of The Avengers.

The mercury dropped below -5 celsius last night (colder than Montréal apparently, where I’ll be a week tomorrow). Not quite cold enough to freeze the stream, but frosty enough to dust the countryside with a delicate glaze of ice.

I walked down from the village into the river valley, and then up the other side, escaping the thick fog and walking along hedgerows that were slowly starting to thaw. Facing one way everything remained white and icy, but turning around (see above) the sun light was beginning to warm and melt with an orange glow.
