Finally...it snowed

Finally...it snowed

Woke up this morning to a world covered in white. Yes, it had actually snowed.
Not a lot of snow by most standards but the most we've had in years, maybe
an inch of it! Was amused when I arrived into work to hear people talking about
how BAD the snow was. Resisted the temptation to laugh but gently reminded
them that it wasn't 'real' snow out there - 'real' snow is feet not centimetres
deep.
Was extremely frustrated all day because I was stuck behind a computer
when I wanted to be outside taking pics of the snow, which while not deep,
was pretty in the winter sunshine.
Just managed to take this pic in our field when I got home. Unfortunately
our neighbour has deprived me of photo opportunities by moving his sheep.
With no sign of temperatures rising, the snow will probably be with us
for days, by which time I will no doubt be glad to see the end of it.

Nice one Mairead - might be an idea to photograph this tree through the seasons for comparison. V

I know that feeling of being confined to work when wonderful conditions exist just outside the door! But you got a wonderful shot today, and I bet more will follow.

That's the best kind of snowfall - just enough to look pretty but not so much that it disrupts life. Nice capture! V

How nice for you! On a side note, we have tons of the stuff. Maybe I can send over a care package? ;-) Great shot!

The romantic notion of snow collides with the practicality of dealing with it on a daily basis. I just love your image. Lovely almost silhouette tree. Great narrative. V

A lovely shot even without the sheep. V

This is so lovely with the intricate winding branches silhouetted against that beautiful sky, and the dusting of snow beneath. ~V~
