Sussex welcomes in the New Year

My home town Lewes, here in Sussex, England, lies between the two ranges of downland hills in the distance,  on the left of the picture above. I was walking over the Sussex Downs at Firle Beacon over the New Year bank holidays and, as the afternoon progressed, cloud cover gave way to the insistent January sun creating a mood of expectation in the bold contrasts of light.

The sheep were expecting too – in February, by the look of those swollen bellies, there will be early spring lambs frolicking in these fields.

As the light began to fade, I walked along the shore-line at nearby Seaford and believed what the landscape has been telling me……

… the new year promises interesting times.
