More Damned Snow

By LynneJoyce  
More snow and fierce, icy winds here this morning so I dared not chance the drive down to Hirst Woods. Consequently the poor dogs had to make do with a walk and some ball play in the immediate locality. This is where these images were captured.

Don't know about you but I am getting a wee bit tired of it now. Yes it makes things look pretty but having to don loads of warm, water and windproof clothing, multiple pairs of socks, waterproof boots, gloves and hats before I can get out, then having to remove all these sodden layers on our return and hang them up to dry is wearisome.

I took a compact with me to take these images because that can be sheltered under the brim of my Gortex hat. Then on my return I decided occupy some of my imprisoned time having a play with presentation. I often take what I call background images with the intention of using them to mount photos on. These include fallen leaves, tree bark, ivy, water and the like. Today it was snow and you have several examples and the chosen 'mount' image is V1.

Thank you for viewing and I hope you enjoy at least some of these images.

Wonderful snow images... Love the ones with the graves and also V10...
Excellent set Lynne, light snow here as well, but it's very light. It might not settle... Isabel GrinGrin

An opposite problem--my daughter lives in Florida where the weather has been unseasonable cold this year-- I sent her a sweater for her basenji---who seems very grateful and willing when she needs to wear it--but---just think of dressing Ansel and Alfred--for snow play-- and then undressing them as well as your self?

Making the best of a bad thing, Lynne well done. Got plenty of the white stuff here too.
I've just walked to a local super market and back with two bags of shopping.
When I walked in the house it felt like I was inside an oven.
I chucked off all of my layers and stood in just a singlet and pants to cool down for a while. Smile
And no, there are no photograph's. Wink

All the best Lynne and stay sane.

Woke up to the same here this morning, Lynne, about the same depth too ❄ It's about the 5th or 6th time this year, though has been only a few millimetres. As you say, it looks nice gazing out the window or in other's images, but not much fun to walk about in - I'm always afraid of slipping and falling, and possibly breaking bones, something I was good at when I was much younger! 😳 A fine collection from your mini outing 😃👍

Just had our first real snow today - intended to go out for a walk but things transpired to prevent that,
so a quick walk to bottom of the garden was all I managed!
Yes it is lovely at first then just a nuisance.
Great set of images Lynne - good on you for getting out with Ansel & Alfred - I presume they loved it?
