First a confession, I missed the Spring Equinox by a day. Exhaustion from several days trudging through snow caused me to stay in bed too long. So today, with a great weather forecast, I headed up Glastonbury Tor.
I always arrive too early and spend an hour on my own at the top of the tor. The street lights from the nearby town of Street shone through the soft early spring morning mist.
The Previous Day
The bad bit about missing the equinox was missing the people who have been at the top to welcome in spring. A few clues were left behind.
Today was cold, in fact it was freezing at minus 4 degrees Celsius. But the with no wind it did not seem so bad.
Before the sun appeared a soft mist lingered over the Somerset Levels.
In the distance the sun appeared above Pennard Hill.
A beautiful soft light across Somerset was a joy to see.
The last few days Somerset has been under several inches, even feet, of snow. Last weekend I worked miles across the Mendip Hills photographing the white landscape. I have not yet had time to to process the pictures but hope to post some soon.
In the meantime, here some spring daffodils suffering in the snow.
