January is an awkward month at the best of times. I started mine not feeling too good and actually, it took until the 1st February, to really feel like a new year had started and I was almost 90% better. To welcome the sunshine (and the breeze!) we did what we do best – headed out with the cameras and explore the first signs of Spring.


I never really appreciated it until now especially when this time last year we had snow, but February is one great big month of signs of Spring – much needed after what feels like an endless Winter. I know meteorlogically speaking it’s still Winter, but there’s hope especially with the amounts of snowdrops lining the banks!




As always, a firm favourite is The Bunny – a peaceful haven of rushing water, sunshine, and the hint of a Spring breeze. I love this place and I try and capture it most times of the year for a comparison of seasons.



And here’s a rare photo of the lesser spotted photographers. Can never resist a sunset, even if it is behind us!

What a name for a weather front! But it was all true – and the chilling temperatures of The Beast met the snow that came with Storm Emma to give us a fantastic few days of proper weather. I’ve seen snow before and I’ve known it cold, but neither of those have been experienced at the levels we’ve had for the past few days. We’ve had -7 celcius combined with wind chill of -13 celcius and some snow drifts are around 3 – 4 feet high in our area of England.

Luckily, I didn’t need to travel today and was able to wrap up warm with the uni books. I took a well earned break exploring the countryside and grabbing a few photographs though, thanks to my Dad’s 4 x 4.


We found a Lapwing (bird) on our travels! He/she was sitting on the side of the road, freezing. We didn’t think it would make it but my Mum wrapped it up in her scarf and I think it spent the afternoon by their fire thawing out and is now doing well again!


We also (thought) we rescued an elderly lady making her way down the road. It really wasn’t safe for anyone to be walking but she was braving it – we asked her where she was going and took her there, turns out she was going to someone’s house to do their ironing! It was sort of a good deed but gosh… dedication to the job there.



The snow has stopped and a thaw is forecast over the weekend – I’ve never seen such constant snow before, followed by freezing rain – which really is a thing. We have intermittent heating and hopefully that will be fixed over the weekend but in the meantime we’re wrapping up warm and keeping calm! Enjoy the photos… it’s been a while hasn’t it…
