It’s almost the end of the year and with Christmas behind me it was time to get out of the house. A back country drive was in order. The weather was nice with a cloudy sky and no snow in sight, that is until I found these cattails.

With the cloud cover we had some beautiful light to photograph. A local farm had a couple of their horses in the field and we stopped to get some photos with this soft light.

Not to mention the light on the fences in the snowy fields.

Before heading home we stopped in Claireville Conservation Area to feed some of the locals.

The cute little chickadees love visitors, especially when they come to feed them some seed.
