22 December 2009

Snow fell all afternoon, and into the evening Monday 21 December 2009. The following day I took the camera out as the sun tried to break through the clouds.

This is more snow than I had (but see below) previously experienced here in Basingstoke.

Little twigs with lots of snow on them
Enough snow to cause the branches to significant bow down and reduce space to walk along this path

7 January 2010

Snow fell from Tuesday evening, all through Wednesday until pretty much twenty four hours since it started. This left something like eight inches of soft snow. Except where it has been compressed (car tracks, feet) and started to turn to ice.

So what seemed record snow a fortnight ago, suddenly doesn't seem so much anymore.

At least today was sunny, unfortunately it was colder, not breaking 0°C.

Not your normal avenue of trees
Just how much snow can rest on the smallest of branches?
Nice collection of icicles

Snow making all look clean (briefly)
Trying the effect of looking into the sun
Even within a day, where the Sun falls, the melt starts
Traffic runs slowly amongst the snow covered trees
Interesting textures when looking up

Looking straight up.

Snow rests along some bits of the twigs, but not others
