In the space of a couple of weeks the colour of the countryside changed from an ochrey silver to a hundred different shades of green, new shoots and leaves all eager to cover the ground and bright spongey moss on stones that looked completely devoid of life just days before.
So I want to pay tribute to the most important life-force on the planet, what everything depends on, nurtures us, is a part of us and unites all life forms: Water.
So here are a few photographs of water in its different forms and some of the protagonists of the last couple of months….with some special visitors who stopped by for a while on their way to their breeding grounds.
Happy World Water day!
