the day it didn't stop snowing ...

The view the day it didn't stop snowing

On Sunday it snowed for nearly twelve hours. Small flakes, mind, but still a stunning sight to see.

Much of the UK has had a lot of snow this last week or so. My little part of it has had its share too, and while it's been bone-numbingly cold at times, and I'm on the verge of running out of clean jumpers and long socks, I still love it.

I've not been out much to take photographs, but I've enjoyed looking out of the window and taking a few snaps, and taking a few more whilst in a moving car - most of them are very bad but, hey, it's fun, and you occasionally take a gem.

From a moving car. Proving my point. Just.

I'm not the only one who's been taking photos - lots of blogs I read are full of images of snow. Here's a few of my favourites - do click through and comment, I'm sure your visit will be most welcome.


Trees and snow and light and beauty!

City snow, nature snow, and a happy snowman.

Snow and sunshine. And playing.

Snowy fields


All the photos in this post are mine. You'll no doubt find better ones if you click on some of those links, but I hope you enjoy these all the same.

If you need more snowy images, then check out this post I did earlier. Officially proof I can't get enough of snow.

And I hope the weather with you, whatever it is, is just what you want and need. The sun has come out here today ...

  1. < Jealous. We haven't had much snow in Kansas this year. And I am sad. But we had the bitter cold. Seems like the cold isn't worth it without snow :( These pictures are lovely.

    1. It's not fair if you just get the cold and don't get the snow - not fair at all. The snow at least makes the cold look pretty ... ;)

      Thanks for the compliment :)

  5. Such pretty snow pictures! We have thankfully hit a bit of a warm patch here in Colorado and its nice to put the snow boots away for a few days, but it sure does make for beautiful photographs!
    Have a great day!

    1. Thanks for the comment :) Yes, the downside with the snow is that it is very cold, but the uoside is the chance to take photos you don't get for most of the year!

  7. Hi Michele, yes, it was extraordinary wasn't it? A whole day snowing! Your landscape looks very similar to ours....fields, hills stretching away...although it has been white to the horizon most of this week and I can't see beyond the tree line at the bottom of the field. Seems to be thawing a little this morning so no more sledging!

  11. Love these photos, especially the bird prints and all the snow covered branches.
    I didn't get a chance to take photos of the snow this time around, I've been so busy, and when i wasn't I couldn't face going out in the cold again!
