The First Snow
We recently had snow for the first time this year. We did have some last October, not very much but with the autumn colours out it was pretty photogenic. I did not make the most of the snow then as I assumed with winter coming that there would be a lot more to come. Instead we have had one of the warmest winters ever.
So I’m glad that as soon as even after this tiny amount of snow fell that I managed to get out of work for a couple of hours and head up the nearest big hill.
As you can see there was no snow across the Somerset Levels. High up in the Mendip Hills it was hardly drifting but there was some.
Its still early morning and long shadows stretch across the fields next to the Deerleap picnic site.
Looking back towards Glastonbury Tor.
The landmark sycamore trees at the top of Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Lynchcombe nature reserve.
The sun rises across Cook’s Fields.
There is barely enough snow to cover the grass yet alone the toadstools.
On returning to the car park it looks like more wet weather is on it way.
