FIRST SNOW

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Many thanks for all your very kind comments and clicks on yesterdays' DYLAN THOMAS up-load.

Well, we woke up to our first snow yesterday ! Must have been mad going out, the roads were really bad where we live, the gritters forget about us up here on the mountain. Anyway, managed to make it to Margam Country Park, was hoping to get some deer shots in the snow, but every time we managed to find some, they heard us crunching along in the icy snow and were off ! And most of the park gates were locked off for some reason or other. but managed to get a few landscape shots. Here's one that was taken around noon, the light turned very quickly and the clouds went a lovely pink colour as if it was a sunset, then within about half an hour was blue as can be again - very strange !

Well, hope you like this one - it was freezing there, the top lake was completely frozen over. will probably add one of those shots tomorrow for you to see.

Keep warm & safe !

Chris

Very impressive Chris, it seems to me that no matter what time of day you take them, you still manage to put your stamp on them, and that's the highest praise I can give!

Good morning, Chris.
This is another lovely image, and although the overall tones are warm, you can still sense how cold it was. Very nicely captured, as always.

That pink looks so cold! Your landscapes capture the feel of the moment, the air, the light - that's what matters for me.

Another excellent rural landscape Chris, what bit of snow we've had here has all gone now, there's only a tiny amount still left on the faraway hills

Very attractive pinky/red sky. The different textures are lovely.
