Winter as we knew it

The current weather is not especially photogenic, there’s not even fog or mist to add atmosphere. Yet again the weather has got stuck in a rut and I am reminded of the Nursery Rhyme that goes: ‘rain, rain go away, come again another day’. Perhaps we could revise the second line of that couplet and write: ‘don’t come until April’.  That would be plenty early enough for the thousands who have been flooded out of their homes in the last few weeks.

I’ve been looking back through the archives at images from January in previous years and found this from January 2010 .

DSC_4509_ELooking at the forecast for next week, the temperature is predicted to drop with drier weather but whether that is a temporary reprieve or a longer-term return to winter as we knew is open to question. We can only hope.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'.

    We are having our first taste of winter weather this week and I’m really enjoying it (so far). The trouble with winter in this area is that it overstays its welcome.

    What a delicate, lovely image. Is that frost? Hoarfrost? Frozen fog? I think it must be frost. The detail is exquisite, and such photos always look nice with a black and white treatment. We’ve not had temperatures low enough for such delights yet, but it varies from year to year, and late January is often our first real cold snap.

      It’s Hoar Frost, Linda. Due to a combination of freezing temperature and mist or fog. Tiny icicles form on plants. rimming the edges of leaves in particular and if there is a gentle breeze then they will all point down-wind. Hoar Frost is a winter’s delight. Please send the cold snap over here, I would love a frosty night or two!
