I completely forgot to take the camera with me today when I was out and about. Luckily my phone has a camera (as most do nowadays!) even if it may not be a great one. Really I’d love a dSLR but it’s going to take me some time to save up for one…
Anyway, my point was that I took today’s picture on my phone as I came home from work. It’s warmed up a bit now and was ‘only’ -13C when the photo was taken. We’d had a sprinkling of fresh snow that was lightly coating everything. Fresh snow is lovely – it makes everything soft, sparkly, white and fluffy. It’s a lighter, brighter colour I think than snow that has been around longer. Old snow gets a bit creamy in colour, probably because of being compacted over time.
The frosted look of these prickly evergreens is really quite delightful. Hopefully I can get a better picture in the next few days. It was a bit too dark to get much more than this at the time.
