Crystals, right now this very moment. And i am listening to music, Bizet, Carmen.(just to set the stage.)
These crystal are really tiny snow flakes lit up by the sunlight. But you all know that. It's just me that was in the dark again, just pulled out of that Dutch dark clay.
I went on a wonderful ski today, what's new? Barb's fen is lovely, as you see. I take a slightly different route on the way back. Limited to where to go these days, there is still always some new skidoo track. Which must have been there, as nobody is really breaking much new trail these days. I just didn't see it before.
From the top of Don's decent i glide down into a big tree forest, big poplars and big Spruce.
I meet some friendly chickadees on the way. And besides that not too much excitement.
Enough excitement last night i guess.
Northern lights again!
I didn't know they were expected. But when i woke up at four AM. I looked out of the window. Actually without glasses(or lenses) on, i have poor eyesight. They were so bright i could tell something was up.
First when i came out there was patches of light in the East , not moving much. In the West there were moving lights. Connected by an slight arch over head.
If you have ever seen a good display of Northern Lights, it is hard to describe really.
Anyway let me think; South-West some faint greens and red appear.
The arch turns brighter and rolls itself into a circle in the East.
More greens and red, somewhere. I forgot.
Big funnels of white light.
You would think i could tell more, i watched for over half an hour. And they are always moving.
Next time i also better know how my camera works for this kind of thing.
I had not seen a beautiful display like that for a long time.
Thank you sun!
