The frost was beautiful this morning. Overnight the temperature dropped and it was almost as if there had been a light dusting of snow. The meadow always looks completely different when the weather changes, so we headed down there pretty early (for a Sunday anyway) to get some photographs.

Additionally, to give Buddy a run! He loved it and it seemed that the frozen ground allowed him to pick up a lot more animal scents than usual as he was incredibly busy throwing himself in all the bushes and lakes.

This afternoon we watched the new Disney film ‘Frozen’ at the cinema, so it seemed fitting that I come home and blog the photographs from this mornings trek! That and the fact that watching a film about cold, snow and ice always makes you feel much more colder than usual when you leave the cinema.

The ‘storms’ are supposedly hitting us again this evening, although not as bad as before. Hopefully we will get to see in  the New Year with electricity, warmth and trees intact!

“I’ve always liked the time before dawn because there’s no one around to remind me who I’m supposed to be so it’s easier to remember who I am.”
― Brian Andreas,

I relied entirely on my mobile phone for today’s pictures, something that I haven’t done since beginning the ‘photo a day’ challenge. I recently upgraded to an iPhone, so yes – I’ve joined the instagram band wagon!


It was incredibly cold, and as I was taking shots of icy windows and roads, I realised that along with the seasons my Photography has come full circle. I started off at the beginning, taking a few shots on my phone along with my camera as well – of icy windows and minus temperatures. And now I’m back there again, in the final days of the blogging!


As I drove to work, it felt like it had snowed overnight. The roads were clear, thanks to the gritters last night, but the trees and the hills were covered in white – it was beautiful. However, the queues were not so beautiful – the amount of broken down vehicles was incredible. Nevertheless it gave ample opportunity to take some photos – queues were my life saver today!


I had to stop to let a bunch of partridges cross the road (I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere…)


So the verdict of the iphone? I miss being able to zoom  in (unless the function is there and I’ve not found it) – I like the effects of instagram and think that those who turn their nose up at it are missing out a little, but it’s never going to replace my normal photo taking habits, rest assured!
