It was such a a cold day today-the first time this winter I have been outside and the cold has seeped into my bones. But along with the cold came the most amazingly beautiful blue sky and winter sunshine that has such a particular quality. It looks cold despite the brightness; the light has a diamond edged brightness.
Both of these pictures were taken in the churchyard of St John the Baptist in Devizes this afternoon. Inside, an orchestra were rehearsing Christmas carols, and then a beautiful voice sang Pie Jesu, the notes hovering on the air.
