Two days ago we woke to discover that the landscape had been transformed overnight. Fields, trees and buildings were covered with a blanket of snow – the first of the winter – creating a hushed, fairyland scene.
The photographs were taken looking out through the kitchen window.
The snow on the patio furniture provides an indication of the depth of the snowfall.
Following so much persistent rain it was a joy to wake on recent mornings to the picturesque, magical landscape provided by a dusting of snow and a heavy hoar frost.

A carpet of snow, a sharp overnight frost, a light fog and, eventually, bright sunshine combined to make this a dream morning for picture taking. The fog created soft focus images and the sunshine produced a clear blue sky to contrast with the frost on the trees.
