Midwinter stillness

Midwinter stillness, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Having been at home for the past 10 days or so, I've tried to walk around the town at least a couple of times a day, and at least once along the beach. We have been blessed with a pleasant dry , cold and still spell of weather, and folk being at home the chimneys of Cromarty have had a busy wee spell.

Coal fires, wood fires, peat fires, the air along the beach has been redolent of all three, and in the still air the smoke hangs low and heavy.

However silhouetted against the setting sun, even the smoke of coal fires can make a pretty picture.
