Beauty in the Snow

By Irishkate  
This was taken several years ago at Matfen Hall when there was a deep snowfall.
I was using Program or full auto at time and of course got better exposures than
I do now using SLR. As Trev and banehawi pointed out in yesterday's upload I should over expose
in the snow!( Oh I see from Exif that I used F8 - on my Panasonic Lumix!)
Goodness knows how I got exposure right for snow!
This image is special to me as it was my first 20 pointer and got a first place
when I was a new beginner.
Thank you all for votes and comments on yesterday's upload of View from my Window.
I am lucky to look unto a field separated by a football pitch and children's play area from our back garden.

What is Snow?

Snow is a thousand flowers
the chinese probably said
hundreds and thousands this morning
drop their garlands on my head
last night the festoons started
long before we went to bed

Snow is a white-furred rabbit
the chinese probably wrote
hedgerows and fields this morning
wear a similar fluffy coat
last night the winter danced back
with a white fur round its throat

Snow is a treacherous fox-face
the chinese probably thought
it lurks in wait this morning
for the weak and overwrought
last night it laughed its head off
loving the fear it's brought.

Regards Nathan
