Lens artist photo challenge – Cold

We have had a few cold frost mornings the last few weeks. The one advantage of a frosty morning is usually a bright start to the day.

Of course there is noting more magical than snow, we haven’t had any yet this winter.

We don’t get it very often here on the west coast of Ireland but we love it when we do.

Snowy daffs

In the west of Ireland, snow is not common. And we’ve had quite a bit already this winter. This afternoon, we had a dusting of unusually, soft powdery snow.

Usually, it is damp snow perfect for making snowmen. We’re told we will get more snow tomorrow night as Storm Emma makes her way from the Bay of Biscay and hits some cold Siberian air. Blizzard like conditions are expected in the east and south, where snowfall has already been heavier. The last time we had a blizzard was 1982, so it is really not something we are used to! Keep safe everyone.
