Morning everyone !

Many thanks for your comments on snowy Rest Bay - most appreciated.

Haven't had time to go through the images taken the night before last yet, so here are two more taken on Friday morning when the snow first arrived, they were taken about 10.00am in the morning on a walk at the rear of our house, V2 is a shot John took of me, just to show you how hard it was snowing, we had to give up at this point and return home - mad or what !

The dark colours of the bridge set against all that white make for a distinctive and eye catching shot, Chris: and judging by V 2 it made sense to head home for a warm cuppa.

Have had real problems as the lower half of this page wouln't load, but just to say, V1 is superb. Really captures the sense of the scene and those tones under the arches work so well set against all that snow.
