Let it Snow

Snow has become increasingly rare in London and this past weekend we experienced our first snowfall of the year. It didn’t amount to much as most did not settle but it did make the trees in the garden look like a Christmas card for a couple of hours.

First snows of winter

Yesterday morning we woke up to the first snows of this winter (at least here in London). Snow here is becoming rarer and rarer – global warming I guess – as our winters seem to get milder and wetter. Now I love snow, especially when, as with yesterday it is just enough to carpet the trees and gardens but not to disrupt transport. As a photographer, I find it a brilliant subject,

So here are a few pictures of the garden

As I sit here writing this on Monday morning it has all gone and there was no more last night – I wonder is that it for this winter?

The Snow cometh!

As I look out on the garden and admire the beauty of the scene I spare a thought for those for whom this is not a beauty of nature but for whom snow and extreme weather is a serious risk to their lives; to those whose journies will be disrupted today.

“The fact that a cloud from a minor volcanic eruption in Iceland—a small disturbance in the complex mechanism of life on the Earth—can bring to a standstill the aerial traffic over an entire continent is a reminder of how, with all its power to transform nature, humankind remains just another species on the planet Earth.”
