Seasonal Splash (3): Snow on Snow

The shortest day, and I took this sunset-like photo after lunch at 2.15 pm - a very strange light
One of the Starlings: look at his hooked claw!
The intricacies of ice: hoar frost on a leaf
Starling Roost
Sunrise Colours
Sunrise over Mumbles
Jack Frost Patterns
'Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird . . .' Eleanor Farjeon
Feathery Trees . . .
Wales, a Winter Wonderland
Icicles!
A welcome Song Thrush . . .

The scene from Swansea, looking towards Mumbles, and across the Severn Estuary to the snowy hills of Exmoor

A Chaffinch - we have two who like to sit in this Larch

The poor spider!

Surreal snowbound Swansea! It's rare to have snow on the beach . . .

I hope you like my miscellany of winter scenes on this, the shortest day of the year!

These photos are so beautiful Caroline especially seeing the shoreline covered in snow. Wrexham and further east looks as if it is going to get a pasting tommorrow.

Thankyou for linking to my eclipse photographs. :)

all of your pictures are beautiful. i'm sure snow on the beach is a sight. we had some starlings in large numbers several years ago but i don't see them now. i don't know what happened. hope all is well your way. have a great night.

Wow...you have some great shots here! I love all those frost patterns...on the leaf and the other. The icicle photo with bird..wonderful! Even the Starling...lets me know we share a common bird at this time of year. The scenery is beautiful! Love that sunrise...so gorgeous. I probably left something out, but these were great!
