Snow, snow, glorious snow

It started to fall down gently yesterday and by the time John went to work at 10pm there were about 2 inchies but when I woke up there were at least 5 inchies and it was a miracle he made it home through the snow as the snowplough had not been through yet. I jumped out of bed, got dressed and grabbed my camera. Turned out I could have taken my time as it stayed all day and is still looking as beautiful as first thing this morning.

But I like the fact it was still dark enough for my flash to come on and prov ide a bit of mysterious ligting to all the photographs. This is the view of our house from the old railway bridge. The white dots are snowflakes falling on my camera lens. I was going to clean them up digitally but they actually proved to be an asset to the picture.

A bit later during the morning, the sun made it through all those snow clouds and added a touch of gold to everything, including the new rose pergola John built back in the summer.

Although the summer remains my favourite time of year, I do LOVE snow!!

ooh, lovely. we didn't get any snow down here, though they told us we would - it wouldn't have been anything like as much as yours, though. Love that you measure snow in inchies!
