It had been a dreary,wet, gray day, and it was drawing to a close.   Living in Amsterdam my daughter introduced me to the custom of lighting candles to dispel the gloom.

I lit a great many candles today.

Suddenly the sun broke through  the clouds and touched the mountains surrounding us.  It was a  moment that pierced the heart with joy.

The Good Husband and I raced down to the bottom of our road to the river, anxious to capture these fleeting moments of sunshine.  We could see thundering storm clouds heading our way from the ocean. The wind whipped up white caps on river.  It smelt of snow.

Shivering in the cold I happily captured this moment of light.
