birds on the wall
in an open-air classroom
silence in snowfall

Isn't it funny how snowfall silences everything Gwilym - even the birds.

I love the silence of falling snow.

By the way, I can't answer your question about people looking younger .... I'm not old enough ;)!

Neat one, Gwilym.

Thanks Gordon. Snow is a kind of censorship. Information is hidden. Things fall silent. Beautiful though.

Hi Gerald, in my experience in the Vienna Woods it's very quiet when the snow is actually falling - before it snows the crows,when the sky begins to darken and wind the gets up, give a concert and sometimes a display of acrobatics - after the snowfall the songbirds burst forth. It may different in Hyde of course.

In a circle of fog
I heard only the stream
Of my thoughts
