Dogs in a winter wood

Well, it's still a Winter Wonderland around here. I snapped these photos when I took Tilly and her friend Lyra on a walk earlier today. We forded the stream behind my studio, passed through groves of holly, stands of birch, and then made our up the slope of Nattadon Hill, slip-sliding as we went.

From the the hill, the view looking back toward the village was heart-stoppingly beautiful in silver winter light.
