I took this on a very frosty morning just before light and thought the frost on the cobweb was beautiful. :happy:

Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

I spotted this little bird while on a snowy walk with my dogs, after a big snowfall a couple of years ago.

Silence is Golden.

What I like about the snow is that every sound seems muted.  The A52 is always quieter when its snowing.  This was taken from my front door a few minutes ago!

Winter walk through the wood ......


Our mini, 4 inch tall snowman - perched on top of an old stone wall by the edge of the wood.  First flurry of snow of 2013 (13-1-13).

Anyone for a swim

This was taken at my sister in laws in the South of France last February and yes there is a swimming pool under the snow.

There was a flash of colour, and Old Growster looked up to the sky, and the January sun caught the ice crystals on the leaves of the hedge, and they glittered in the new morning light.

The lazy, chilly breeze intensified the kaleidoscope of nature’s jewels, which twinkled and swirled for several glorious minutes.

I found it really hard to narrow down to 3 picks - we had got down to 5 then got stuck!   Thanks for sharing and best of luck everybody.  Great entries.  Really enjoyed all the photos :D
