Snow!

Storm Caroline passed us by without too much incident, but in its wake we’ve got bitterly cold winds and the first proper snow of the winter.

At town level it only dusted the rooftops, but the fells looked really dramatic seen from Longlands Road when I took a camera for a walk this afternoon…

Autumn colours – and snow!

I got cabin fever this afternoon so set off for a walk round the local streets – and because we’d had the first proper snowfall of the winter overnight, I took my camera with me.

It wasn’t sunny, but there were odd brighter gleams amongst the dark clouds, just enough to light up some of the last remaining autumn colours, and the snowy fells.

Here’s a couple of photos to show you the general effect.  Both are in/around Windermere, though neither show our house!
