My two favourite days of the year are the day each year that daylight saving starts and today, the winter solstice. Tomorrow is the first day towards summer 2015; today is the beginning of longer days. That is the best Christmas present possible.
Today, as usual, textures caught my eyes as I walked as did iconic sights. Cedar, the pattern of waves on sand, clouds/fog/clouds/the ocean blending together, leaves, grasses… there is beauty everywhere but never have I been more aware of the stunning sights of winter.

|There are orange, red, blue and white berries.|
Beautiful berries abound in winter.
|On the west side of the park are high cliffs|
and because of all the winter storms, there
are lots of new streams.
|I love the composition here.|
|As ferns decay, their colour deepens.|
|Look at these colours and textures;|
I love this composition.
|These, in life, are a deeper violet. They are |
stunning salad (Gaultheria Shallon) leaves.
