Spore capsules of a moss plant carefully testing the temperature above the ice. Victor Bos
I went out for a walk today in blizzard like conditions with the intention of taking some photographs. Unfortunately when the moment came my camera told me it's batteries were exhausted! I was fine though.
To make up for the lost snow pictures here is a photograph which came in a New Year greeting from a Dutch reader. What a brilliant picture. There are more on the web site of Victor Bos. (I've downloaded the Google Toolbar, which has a translation button, just so I can read his blog.)
I'd like to take the opportunity to applaud my Dutch friend who is undergoing major surgery on the 16th of this month. She is one brave woman, and such fun too!
