Winter Colour

We had our first snowfall last night, although it had pretty much all melted by this afternoon. There’s still a light covering on the tops of the hills, as though someone had dusted icing sugar over their usually green summits. What always suprises me at this time of year is that, despite the cold, there are still some flowers bravely blooming in amongst the ice crystals. My grandfather’s double primroses are a great example of how vibrant life can be while so much else lies dormant.

    Wow! Fabulous photo set Amy! Your photography goes from strength to strength. Love the ice photos in particular

    The best kind of snow is the kind that arrives overnight, lasts long enough for everyone to look at it and go “Ahhh!!” , take professional-standard photographs of it (yes, you!), chuck the odd snowball or two, and then melts away until next year!

    Amazing photos, Amy. No snow here, I’m afraid – just wind and rain. I miss Scotland!

    Your pictures are absolutely breathtaking. There is no snow where I live so seeing those gorgeous blooms amidst the ice is magical!

    Thank you, Toni. There’s no ice in the photos that I took today, but I hope you like them just as much!
