A glimpse of Winter

winter 1b

 

It has been a most unusual winter so far:  lots of rain, lots of wind, a succession of damaging storms, but on Sunday morning we woke to discover  everywhere covered by a picturesque  blanket of snow. ‘ Is this the beginning of winter?’ we asked..

Jackdaws and crows retreated to the highest branches of trees and looked down in disgust.

A bemused blackbird peered over the roof top.

Two faces of winter

The pictures below are of the same tree taken on two consecutive days, yesterday and today (Friday).   Yesterday shiny patches of bark sparkled in the  brilliant winter sunshine.  Today, following an overnight fall of snow (our first this winter!) the sun still shone, though somewhat intermittently.

Frost patterns (4)

To offer an alternative interpretation, this picture of frost on grass (taken at the same time as the recent posts) has been given a touch of watercolour filter.
