Snowy Walks

26th January 2013, Christon Bank, 8am

Heavy snow falling when you've nowhere to be but home is quite a nice feeling. We were up early and off to the woods to see what last night's snow had left for us.

We found the trees silhouetted against the dawn

After a spot of breakfast we were back out to enjoy the beautiful weather. We're promised a thaw and rain tonight so I wanted to make the most of today.

Winter trees at Howick burn

We headed up into Howick gardens and spent a happy hour or so wandering through the woods.

At Howick you emerge from the woods on a footbridge which crosses the road bridge which itself crosses the burn 100 feet below.

A hellibore (Christmas Rose): Anachronistically in full bloom when so much is cold and dead.

Another evergreen plant brings colour to the frozen landscape.  This photo would be nice in b&w but the leaves' colour was important today.
