Yule

Down walking around Castle Ward at the weekend with my aunt, we stopped to have a look at these fallen trees.I didn't realise that there was a (presumably ancient) standing stone here and as my aunt stood with her back to it, with some holly in her hand (to bring back to the house), the scene did have a certain pagan feel to it, quite spooky but also seasonal.

 

Last post before the New Year, I'm off to London and then Hong Kong for Christmas...lots of photo opportunities! I wish you all a wonderful, peaceful Christmas and catch up with you all in the New Year!
