Winter Wonderland

I hope that all you local County folks have picked up your cameras this weekend as we have been blessed - if you are a photographer - or cursed - if you are a driver - with one of the most beautiful snowfalls in recent memory.  It is a virtual orgy for the eye.  Even the most mundane item is covered in a beautiful blanket of snow.  Fortunately, the winds have not blown and the snow remains clinging to the trees.  Between a lot of shovelling, I managed to take these shots around our house.  Hope you enjoy them.

This is our old stone house cloaked in its pristine snowy blanket.

The top of the arbour was covered in fluffy white magic.

Even the deck posts had their hats on!

Bullrushes weighted with the white snow.

Old willows along the shoreline  draped in their white covering presented a wonderful monochromatic opportunity.

This one was taken when the snow was falling quite heavily.  I used flash to highlight the gigantic falling flakes



And after the storm had passed, peaceful serenity was evident all around!

But no time to sit down on the chair - time to start shovelling!

Ah - I finally hear the snow plough coming to dig us out.

Now, if you've captured some great snow images, send them to us at and we will post them here for you.
