Frost sharpens the edges of bullrushes in the shallows of the reservoir and a light mist throws a thin veil over willows at the water's edge.
Elsecar, South Yorkshire, England.

their outlines softened by the light mist,
around their bare limbs . . . . . . .(From a poem I was prompted to write after reflecting on this scene) Errol.
