Snow – Photos – January 2010

Although two years ago, I thought I’d share the snowy photos I took in January 2010. I used some of them as Christmas cards and was pleased with the results.

Some of the photos were taken while I trudged to work in the snow laden lands of Bristol and others are from a snowy walk over the Bristol hills near our home.

I am particularly pleased with this photo, a sight I take in each day near my office. Although it looks much more magical until a snowy blanket, I’m especially fond of the Narnia style lamp posts.

This photo is of the archway and statue by Bristol Library

I like the way the snow has blown in and the half sheltered look of the statue, as if he has turned his back on a blizzard.

The huge snowballs to the right were later used to make giant snowmen on College Green, a very impressive display.

It was definitely too cold for a bike ride! This lonely bicycle was abandoned for a week or so. I like the inflated look the snow gives the bike, making it look as if it’s made of marshmallow! Everything looks so much softer under a layer of snow.

While on our walk over the hills one snowy day, the sun bright but not quite warm enough to melt all the snow, gave everything a glow.

I’m pleased with the way the fence draws your eye down the pathway and into the valley below.

On our way home, as the sun was beginning to set, I saw this spindly silhouette of a tree set against the coloured layers of the sky and clouds. A stunning view to end our snowy walk.
